Description

Where does a design idea come from? And what does it take to bring it to life? This invaluable design reference for new and advanced woodturners alike answers these questions and more. In Woodturning Design, author Derek Hayes takes turners step-by-step through the process of design, beginning with basic principles and then moving into proportion, pattern, and form. He also addresses working with different woods, color, and decoration. Hundreds of instructional photographs and illustrations will assist readers at every turn. Although many crafters can follow clearly illustrated instructions to achieve a desired result, they struggle with adapting the design to become uniquely their own. This practical yet inspirational book will motivate turners to take what they learn here and transform wood in new and different ways.
