ABSTRACT
The article discusses a project that introduces the easiest type of off-center turning, where only one end of the piece is off-center. It illustrates the construction of a handle for a wood rasp by laminating three pieces of wood and then turning one part by the off-center procedure. Also included are the club foot, the easy leg for an out-of-round turning, and the procedure for creating a leg with the top always on true center and only the foot off-center.
