+1 to what Jim says. I can't really add much along those lines.

Both spindle and faceplate turning are hard to learn on your own.

If you can find some hands-on instruction, that would be great.

If you can't I would suggest the Turning Wood book and DVD by Richard Raffan. There may be others that have come down the pike since, but when I was learning spindle and bowl turning he was the best out there.

After that Richard has additional more in depth books and videos on bowls, boxes, etc.

Just my $.02
