Summary

This book is a collection of classic articles on building yachts and motor boats, dealing with design, repairs and maintenance, equipment, materials, and many other related aspects. Carefully selected for a modern readership, these timeless articles will be of considerable utility to anyone with a practical interest in the subject and would make for worthy additions to collections of allied literature.

    This anthology draws together the renowned food writer’s reflections, insights, and personal journeys through the world of wine and spirits. 
     
    For MFK Fisher, one of Americas most-read and best-loved food writers, wine was a passion nurtured during her time in France and, later, California. This anthology, edited by acclaimed biographer Anne Zimmerman (An Extravagant Hunger: The Passionate Years of M.F.K. Fisher), is the first ever to gather Fishers finest writings on wine.  
     
    In sparkling prose, Fisher reminisces about marvelous meals enjoyed and drinks savored; describes the many memorable restaurants that welcomed and even educated her; discuses rosés, sherry, chilled whites, and cocktails; and escorts readers from Dijon to Sonoma. Open a bottle, open the book, and linger over some of the best wine writing ever done.

    When Rude Osolnik was asked, "Rude, how do I become a good turner?" he replied, "Stand at the lathe." 
    Well, that's the key!  
    Of all the woodworking crafts I have practiced, Turning demands most patience and focus. 
    As you start, you have to find your comfort zone with a lathe, chisels, and other tools. After some practice, your mind and body would get attenuated to the ecosystem of Turning. 
    There are two ways of learning; one is learning from SMEs (Subject Matter Experts) with years of experience, and the other is to learn from people who are just a few steps ahead of you in their journey. 
    I fall into the latter group. I have spent five years on this hobby and am still learning from the experts.I still remember the initial doubts I had and the tips that helped me. 
    Topics Covered 
    ✓    Introduction to Wood Turning 
    ✓    Process & Techniques 
    ✓    Finishing 
    ✓    Safety and Best Practices 
    ✓    10 Beginner Woodturning Projects 
    ✓    Tips, Glossary, and Conclusion 
    I have included ample photographs of realistic beginner projects, and I will explain the processes and standard operating procedures associated with them. 
    In the last chapter, I have provided tips for beginners and a glossary of wood turning terms. 
    So what are you waiting for? 
    Get this updated book from someone who is a few steps ahead in the Wood Turning journey!

    The go-to reference that covers the basics of setting up a studio, three popular techniques for creating glass art, and projects that will challenge you. 
     
    The Glass Artist's Studio Handbook offers readers a comprehensive and accessible guide to not only the nuts and bolts of this perennially popular craft but insight into the artisan crafter's lifestyle. Our book offers much, much more than "just projects"—it will fast become the definitive "bible" for all home crafters.  
     
    Many glass art how-to books on the market provide precise patterns and instructions for projects that are fairly traditional in technique, materials and style. Completing a project from those books leaves you with a piece that is ideally identical to what the author created—and to what every other student using the book created. Many books are strong in the basics but do not do enough to challenge us to stretch our imagination, experiment with new styles, and explore materials. Readers want creative challenge and stimulation, and Quarry delivers with this complete glass art curriculum.

    Meet the Boxheads. They’re the family of the new millennium. The Boxheads have many funny situations as they explore their new surroundings and meet new friends at the local mall. Come along with them to learn about morals, good manners, and how to be a true friend through problem-solving. The Boxheads saga will continue with their unique methods of teaching children to love, respect, and have genuine feelings that are motivated by both heart and mind, always using the power of reasoning to weigh both sides, thus coming to the right and most thoughtful conclusions. By keeping the little conscious activated, it keeps an open mind to the good and not-so-good, in time developing character and good conduct. The Boxhead’s personalities reflect the basics of today’s children. Without any further ado, I would like to introduce the Boxheads!
