Tour de Force Woodturning

Claude Lethiecq, a former member of WIW, has an online book published and available here.

He wanted the book to be available to all turners.  It covers “tour de force” woodturning, a special kind of complex sculpture completed entirely on the lathe from a single piece of wood.  These spheres-within-spheres require making special tools and many calculations.  Though perhaps the finial multi-level projects are not for everyone, there are detailed instructions on how to turn and mark a sphere, designing and making tools, and it is overall an inspirational read.
