The ornamental or complex lathe, with its infinite capability for shaping and decorating, was perfected by the Holtzapffel family of London between 1780 and 1914. This amazing machine makes use of a broad range of attached tools, engineering works of art in themselves, to turn hardwood — and, at the time, ivory — into an astonishing variety of intricate patterns. Besides designing the lathe, Charles Holtzapffel and his son, John Jacob — successful engineers, businessmen, and manufacturers — also wrote the five-volume bible of this particular art: Turning and Mechanical Manipulation on the Lathe. This book reprints the fifth volume of this enormous work, making this definitive and extremely rare book available to modern devotees of this most demanding and satisfying craft. Featuring over 600 line drawings and detailed instructions, the twelve chapters of the text are organized according to the various cutting frames and chucks, describing and illustrating the enormous powers of each. Combinations of chucks for compound eccentric turning, spiral turning, and reciprocated work are also described in detail. The approach throughout is thoroughly practical and nothing is omitted that may be of use to the beginner or advanced ornamental turner.

This splendid book describes and illustrates in detail how the Shakers designed, built, and finished their furniture and household articles. With its detailed text as well as over 250 photographs and measured drawings for over 80 classic pieces, it offers woodworkers and furniture enthusiasts a practical guide to the essentials of replicating a broad range of designs long admired for their sturdy practicality and their spare, elegant beauty. The book first chronicles and describes the Shaker movement and the Shaker way of living, worshiping, and working. It then explores the Shaker approach to furniture design (from chests and chairs to boxes and baskets), construction (including all joinery techniques), and finishing (including recipes for finishes). Three important sections of the book depict dozens of classic Shaker designs, complete with measured drawings. The designs include Shaker "smallcraft" such as a cutting board, scoop, candle sconce, peg-leg footstool and towel rack; more substantial "utility designs" such as a dough bin, cradle, dry sink, butcher block, and bonnet box; and furniture classics such as a Harvard trestle table, maple chair, lap desk, sewing chest, rocking chair, bed, settee and chest of drawers — each in its own distinctive way defining the simple, practical grace of Shaker design.
