Turning for Furniture. Creating Furniture Parts on your Lathe by Ernie Conover

Book description
This book has very good instructions on how to get good results in turning furniture parts. The chapter on table legs is a high point. I would give it a 10 just on that. I wish the author had skipped some of the basics since most buyers already know it. Nevertheless there is a lot of good material. If I come out of a book with something added to my work I consider it money well spent. This one certainly fits the bill.
