There is a tremendous fascination in watching the creation of a spiked star in a sphere, a set of chinese balls or a lattice pomander.

David developed this aspect of woodturning to a high level after discovering the work of a little known, but highly skilled 18th-century French turner - his thought? “If someone else can do it, so can I” - Now so can you!

Superb detailed step-by-step demonstrations and explanations of these three projects enable you to turn pieces that will intrigue and amaze even other turners.

Reviewed by John Haywood for “Woodturning” magazine “David Springett gives a marvelous introduction to a new world that so many considered unattainable. He clearly demonstrates that if he can do it, so can you. Yes he is a wizard woodturner and this tape shows his magic touch, but unlike the magician there is no sleight of hand! This is a tape that will intrigue and enthrall all who use it and provide the incentive to embark upon such wizardry. An ideal video for woodturning clubs and branches of national organisations, offering a natural introduction to the books.” “With over two hours of viewing, the video also offers great value for money.”
