About the Book
Join Eugen Schlaak of Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada on his 40 year Journey through the "World of Woodturning".
On over 250 pages with more than 500 color pictures he provides an insight about his progress using a variety of Woodturning Lathes between 1970 and 2010.
This is a colorful and easy to follow book containing 20 chapters showing some of the many items which can be produced using a woodturning lathe. Documented are items ranging from simple toys to collectible wood sculptures Eugen Schlaak has produced during those years and which can be found in many private collections throughout the world.
