I took a good course on bowl turning from green wood at Woodcraft. The cost
of the class was $60.00 and taught just about everything from cutting the

For books on turning bowls try the library...
Look for books put out by woodworking magizines and
books on using a lathe.
Or just go to your local MEGA bookstore ( Barnes
and Noble, Borders, whatever...) and sit down and
look at a few books there
Check here for some ideas on reproducing some
chairs and stools, and a table
Check here for other related stuff....
Anyone else got ideas?
