Terry Porter has been involved in woodworking for most of his life. He has written many articles for woodworking magazines. He was the editor of 'Woodturning' magazine in the mid-1990s.
He has turned wood for many years and that is what stimulated his interest in using and identifying different woods. This led to the commissioning of 'Wood, Identification and Use', which is now available in French, German and Dutch as well as English.
Terry is now semi-retired and lives just outside Lincoln.
