We have a winner!
Terry Martin is an established woodturner and has written a new book, The Creative Woodturner. This isn’t your typical “how-to” book. It isn’t going to teach you about tools and techniques – you probably already know that stuff. But it is going to show you how to develop your artistic style.
The 1st chapter, “Thinking About Turning” is filled with poignant quotes from the likes of Benjamin Franklin and Pablo Picasso and they get you thinking. It also provides insightful observations from Martin’s past and from other artists that will help you to think and see things differently. Then, 16 inspiring projects show you how Martin’s creative process works. And at the same time you will learn some useful turning tips.
The Creative Woodturner “will teach you to think and see differently so your time at the lathe is not spent imitating someone else, but creating the original ideas that will set you apart.”
