His frugal "make your own" approach shows lots of traditional and perfectly good (and cheap) options for holding and cutting wood on the lathe that won't break the budget like many of the fancy new chucks, tools and gizmos in the stores these days can.
There are some areas where I wished he'd dove into a little more detail but, after all, we're being frugal in this endeavor. Right? There's a wealth of good books on wood-turning, so the author has stuck to teaching us how to enjoy the art of turning wood on the lathe without breaking the bank in the process.
