Woodturning is one of the fastest growing hobbies in the United States, but most beginning woodturners don't have access to formal training or experienced teachers. Written by a professional woodturning instructor with over a decade's teaching experience, A Lesson Plan for Woodturning is a systematic, skill-building introduction that helps beginning woodturners master basic woodworking techniques on their own. A Lesson Plan for Woodturning provides a complete, self-directed course in woodturning safety, tools, and techniques that will help any beginning woodturner learn the basics on his or her own time. Using methods proven in the classroom, A Lesson Plan for Woodturning provides the equivalent of three semester-length classes in one book. Designed to give readers a thorough grounding in every essential woodturning technique, A Lesson Plan for Woodturning, is systematically organized to teach basic skills that are building blocks for mastering more complex tasks. Each lesson features projects designed to develop the specific skill discussed. The structure, order and specific exercises are based on classroom-tested experience in teaching woodturning to both adult and younger students and are well tested in the classroom. Each project is thoroughly documented with step-by-step instructions, illustrations and photographs, showing the specific tasks, positions, and cutting motions needed to successfully complete the project. The projects are simple, direct, and focused on skill development. Readers can easily develop their own similar projects following the same general steps. About the Author James Rodgers is a professional woodturning instructor and the founder of the Mount Diablo Woodturning Center. He lectures throughout the United States and has published many articles on woodturning. He lives in Martinez, California.
