 Getting Started in Woodturning

A new book 'Getting Started in Woodturning'  written by woodturners for woodturners, and edited by John Kelsey offers beneficial information to help learners progress into the art and craft of woodturning.  It contains step-by-step instructions for 18 skill-building projects—a bowl, pepper mill, goblet, pen, doorknobs, and more.  

Topics include information from shopping for a first lathe, to safety practices, to tools and sharpening techniques. The important content is derived from the AAW’s American Woodturner journal and previous workbooks: Safety for Woodturners, Lathes and Turning Tools, Practical Woodturning Projects, and Learning at the Lathe.

'Getting Started in Woodturning' is now available in the AAW’s Online Store at and select woodworking retailers, and independent and national-chain bookstores.
