In issue 372 of Woodturning magazine we have lots for you to enjoy, beginning with our Guest Editor, Emiliano Achaval who welcomes you to the issue; uses traditional thread-chasing to make a box with a secret compartment; and interviews Argentinian woodturning school owner, Matias Castro.
In Projects, Les Symonds makes a yew bowl with an applied and stitched rim; Andrew Potocnik turns a maple and textured red gum container; Sue Harker applies a paint-pouring technique to the rim of a shallow bowl; Alan Holtham shows the easy way to turn custom tool handles; Matt Long makes a beautiful platter; Kevin Alviti upgrades his garden tools by making a line and reel; and Pat Carroll turns a Chinese-style herb jar.
In our Techniques section, Kurt Hertzog answers readers’ questions; Andy Coates has a refresher on deep hollowing skills; Ben Law builds a traditional pole lathe and portable alternatives; and Mark Palma looks at the role of the tail centre on the lathe.
In Features, Richard Findley shares his thoughts on large production work, talks demos and describes a set of gavels he recently made; we commorate the life and work of David Springett; and Pete Moncrieff-Jury discusses traditional turning versus artistic work.
Plus we have the latest news from the woodturning community and a sneak peek of our next issue.
All this and more in Woodturning 372!
