Everyone has arrived at woodturning from different paths.
We've all drawn inspiration in one way or another by other woodturners, whether it's a fellow club member, a professional demonstrator or YouTube personality.
So, the QOTW is

Name ONE turner you draw inspiration from and why?

Our own Breck Whitworth. I remember when he joined and the expansion of his ability. I know I won't come close, but is fun to try. Smiley

I have been influenced by many turners - everyone here has amazing talents and such diverse results!! Thanks to all who share their photos and thoughts...

HOWEVER.. the ONE person how has done more for me in this area is the person who introduced me to woodturning - My High School Photography Teacher.

No, that's not a typo!! He is a wonderful person who went out of his way to help me in many endeavors. He helped me with Photography, general layout, sizing and relative scales, composition, personal investing and finally woodturning. He is a man of outstanding talents and an excellent instructor. I can not thank Nelson G. enough for all he has done for me.
