Woodturning is one of the fastest growing hobbies in the United States, but most beginning woodturners don't have access to formal training or experienced teachers. Written by a professional woodturning instructor with over a decade's teaching experience, A Lesson Plan for Woodturning is a systematic, skill-building introduction that helps beginning woodturners master basic woodworking techniques on their own. A Lesson Plan for Woodturning provides a complete, self-directed course in woodturning safety, tools, and techniques that will help any beginning woodturner learn the basics on his or her own time. Using methods proven in the classroom, A Lesson Plan for Woodturning provides the equivalent of three semester-length classes in one book. Designed to give readers a thorough grounding in every essential woodturning technique, A Lesson Plan for Woodturning, is systematically organized to teach basic skills that are building blocks for mastering more complex tasks. Each lesson features projects designed to develop the specific skill discussed. The structure, order and specific exercises are based on classroom-tested experience in teaching woodturning to both adult and younger students and are well tested in the classroom. Each project is thoroughly documented with step-by-step instructions, illustrations and photographs, showing the specific tasks, positions, and cutting motions needed to successfully complete the project. The projects are simple, direct, and focused on skill development. Readers can easily develop their own similar projects following the same general steps. About the Author James Rodgers is a professional woodturning instructor and the founder of the Mount Diablo Woodturning Center. He lectures throughout the United States and has published many articles on woodturning. He lives in Martinez, California.

The Creative Woodturner: Inspiring Ideas and Projects for Developing Your Own Woodturning Style, Terry Martin
4 The Creative Woodturner: Inspiring Ideas and Projects for Developing Your Own Woodturning Style
Terry Martin USA Linden Publishing 2014 1610352181 / 9781610352185 Soft cover New Book 28.1 x 21.5 x 1.0 cm 
Woodturning is as popular as ever -- a constantly growing segment in the woodworking world and one of the most wide-reaching woodcrafts among artists and hands-on crafters. Its appeal is based on the short learning curve, the minimal equipment, and the sheer joy of learning to make something out of wood with one's own hands. But, unlike a lot of crafts that rely on individuality and creative thinking, the initial techniques of woodturning must be mastered. While at first liberating, these same techniques can eventually be confining because in mastering them, one must follow the lead of others. At a certain point, woodturners can feel that mastering the techniques has become the end in itself as they lose sight of their true pursuit: to create one's own original style. In fact, some woodturners, who believe they aren't creative enough, will simply continue to master techniques while imitating the style of others. Terry Martin, the author of The Creative Woodturner and a woodturning artist, instructor, and photographer for over thirty-years, believes this goes against the fundamental nature of creating and being an artist. There is no "right" or "wrong" and the pursuit of originality should be the goal of every woodturner. Best of all, creativity can be learned and the ability to think and see in one's own artistic style can be achieved. The Creative Woodturner is not your usual "how-to" woodturning book. It won't tell you what a chuck is, how to sharpen a scraper, or how to turn a goblet. Instead, this book is a "how-to" for unlocking curiosity, how to break the rules, and for following one's own artistic path with confidence. Designed to give readers a wide perspective on creativity, The Creative Woodturner begins first with insightful commentary, quotes, and examples from the woodturning and art community that will both inspire and inform. In addition, the author shares his Idea Tools: questions to ask during the planning and creative process that are as important to the creation of the woodturning project as any equipment in the shop. Finally, 16 one-of-a-kind projects - from boxes and vessels to bowls and one-of-a-kind sculptures - are featured that will spark the creative mindset of any woodturner. Each project is documented with instructions and crisp photography highlighting the key steps, techniques, and tasks necessary for completion. In taking the reader through each project, the author pulls back the curtain on his woodturning magic and shares his vision and how the Idea Tools and creative thinking emerges in each project. An inspiring and enjoyable read not only for woodturners, but for any artist, The Creative Woodturner will anyone to think and see differently so time is spent at the lathe - or whatever creative pursuit it is -- creating the original ideas instead of imitating someone else.
