Turning Green Wood is the latest edition of this best-selling title. In this inspiring and thought-provoking guide, Michael O' Donnell, one of the foremost exponents of the technique, explains how to harvest and store timber, and how to make the best use of the grain pattern and other properties.

Turning green wood can be made so delicate that it is actually translucent, and the thickness of the wood can be gauged by shining a light through it as you work. Using clear text and spectacular photographs to show exactly how this is done, this book demystifies one of the most admired techniques used by woodturners today. It also features six inspirational projects to make, including a cross-grain translucent bowl, cross-grain natural-edge bowl, end-grain bowl, natural-edge end-grain bowl, natural-edge end-grain goblet, and part-turned bowl.

Michael O'Donnell is a founding member of the Association of Woodturners of Great Britain and the author of Decorating Turned Wood and Turning Green Wood.

"Profusely illustrated and a thoroughly 'user friendly' instruction guide and manual for wood shop curriculums, "Turning Green Wood" is an ideal and unreservedly recommended addition to personal, professional, community, highschool and technical college library woodworking collections."
