For lovers of French Wheels everywhere. A look into making the four-legged wheels of Bergeron's Manuel du Tourneur, progressing into the beautiful triangular based wheels and finally the popular Cooper Normandy. A wheel builder since 1997, Carson Cooper explains how to make each variation with common tools. Detailed drawings and instructions are given for each.

Affaire d'Amour with a French Spinning Wheel provides detailed plans for making four classic French inspired spinning-wheels, both as they were made in 1792, and also an enhanced version including the addition of modern day bearings and materials. Drawings, dimensions and material lists come straight from the working plans of a professional wheel-builder.
