Turning of objects with mechanism. Woodturning includes multiple disciplines, whether artistic, ornamental, utilitarian or industrial. In so-called utilitarian turning, mechanisms are used which are "dressed" in wood to make various objects: pepper mill, bottle opener, screwdriver, pill box, nutcracker... Through forty or so detailed step-by-step projects, Thierry Martin presents several turning techniques adapted to the vast majority of objects with mechanisms found on the market. A true source of inspiration, this book offers a wide variety of shapes, wood species and finishes, to ensure the quality of the creations, their aesthetic aspect and their ergonomics.
