It's remarkable how striking and elegant simple carving looks on turned objects. The addition of carved letter or a wheat-ear border on a bowl, for example, really enhances the bowl's beauty - and could add another personal and meaningful touch to the turned work. If you've ever considered adding some ornamental carving to turned objects - bowls, boxes, etc. - let "Carving on Turning" be your guide. Chris Pye, best known for his carving work, here combines his loves for both carving and turning, and continues his exploration of carving on turned work first begun more than fifteen years ago. He offers 12 fully illustrated projects that show a wide range of carving on turned objects. Each of the projects was chosen to demonstrate another aspect or technique and all is fully explained. If you're like me, it's hard to look at the gorgeous carved bedposts Chris shows without being filled with covetous feelings. In his customary way, Chris highlights the different approaches of various kinds of carving, gives advice about the necessary tools and how to care for them, and conveys enthusiasm about getting to work.
