My career in woodturning started in 1986 after leaving engineering. I spent many years attending craft fairs. A major change happened when I moved into a craft workshop with my wife Wendy who is a glass artist.
I was accepted onto the Register in 2006 this was a very proud moment for me.
I like to work with native timber, mostly from tree surgeons; this allows me to choose the way it’s converted to obtain the best figuring.
My work ranges from utility ware to works of art. I produce small to large items which I sell in my shop.
In 2010 I was commissioned to make the trophies for the UCI world mounting bike event at Dalby Forest North Yorkshire.
Since 2008 I have demonstrated at the Harrogate Woodworking Show.
I have run courses in my workshop since 2006. I enjoy passing on my skills and knowledge to new students. These are run one to one unless you would like to bring a friend.
Online courses and IRDs Demonstrations are available ask for details.
