Based at Porchfield Business Park near Newport on the Isle of Wight, The Mulberry Tree Woodturnery was started in March 2013 by Andy Fortune.
Andy had been a hobby wood turner since 1997 with the purchase of his first lathe and later started his full-time wood turning business with the help and support of his wife, Nikki.
Andy has many years of experience and specialises in making bowls, platters and hollow forms from locally sourced timber from the Isle of Wight but can also offer specialist bespoke turning services for most types of turning.
Many of Andy’s one-off signature pieces are laced with leather or copper wire in the style of the Japanese philosophy of ‘Wabi-Sabi’ and are made from individually selected pieces of timber sourced on the island.
Andy sells his own unique hand crafted turnery, takes commissions, and sells direct to the public at the Mulberry Tree Woodturnery workshop where he also provides his 5* rated beginner and intermediate bowl turning courses for individuals or groups of up to four people.
Andy is an active member of the Wight Woodturners which meets twice monthly in Newport. (www.wightwoodturners.org.uk)
The Mulberry Tree Woodturnery is the main Isle of Wight agents for Record Power tools and equipment, Robert Sorby, Chestnut Finishing Products and Hampshire Sheen.
With the recent addition of a horizontal sawmill Andy is now able to process locally sourced trees which he converts into boards and bowl blanks to retail to local woodworkers, hobbyists and the building trade.
