Introduction by Gary Roberts

“The Author of this volume is a man not only of wide experience in practical woodwork, but who has for many years been an Instructor at Technical Schools, and has also the additional advantage of having an intimate knowledge of all kinds of woodworking tools and machinery.”

Although the life of William Fairham remains unknown, these words of praise from the editor of The Woodworker Series, J. C. S. Brough, in his forward to the companion book, Wooodwork Tools, attest to the professional esteem in which he was held.

The Woodworker Series of books were first published by Evans Bros. of London in the early 20th Century. In many cases derived from articles first printed in The Woodworker, a monthly journal of craft also published by Evans, The Woodworker Series expanded upon the material of the journal to produce a classic series that remains applicable and valuable today.

In Wood-Turning, Fairham covers the use of the Foot Treadle Lathe in the art of turning wooden objects. He covers treadling, the care of turning tools, and the various forms turned, such as split & spiral, hollow & ball, square and ring turning. His first hand knowledge of wood turning on a foot treadle lathe remains an invaluable resource for the wood turner of today.
