How do you get an unbroken arrow through an undamaged bottle?

How can you turn a sphere within a sphere within a sphere?

What is the secret of the Pharoah's tomb?

Here are 20 woodturning projects to intrigue every woodturner: the pieces are obviously not impossible, but are certainly improbable, and it would challenge the most accomplished, logical mind to solve these questions.

The preliminary chapters concentrate on the three secrets of this turning - formulae for precise mathematical marking, construction purpose-built jigs and chucks, and making and adapting special turning tools - and discuss safety procedures and the choice of easily and cheapily obtainable wood.

The projects range from a delightful old-fashioned Whistling Top and a Yo-yo decorated with Tunbridge stickware, through Magic Tricks, a Spherical Jigsaw and Lattice Pomanders, to the incredible 'turned trickery' of Cubes in Spheres, Stars in Cubes and Interlocking Spheres.

136 fully dimensioned line drawings and over 320 photographs complement the step by step instructions, and there are 8 colour pages showing the finished projects.
