I served in Her Majesty’s Grenadier Guards Band from the age of 15 to 25 traveling the world and making lots of noise as a tuba player. For the next couple of years I tried working in a hospital and training as a driving instructor. I then then found my true vocation when I worked for a builder friend who trained me up as a General builder at the age of 27 and I have been running my own business until the present time. I started woodturning in 2010 and found it an easy change. My practical use of timber and carpentry tools and my attention to detail from my Army days where a great help to me. I was encouraged by club members to demonstrate to my woodturning club in 2017 and finaly started demonstrating to other clubs in February 2019. I like to demonstrate things that are different to the normal things that you see and add a little fun at the same time. I also love meeting with other turners and often find that I learn as much from them as they do from me. I have had some success with turning for competition and love to make things that are out of the usual, often not knowing if they are even possible.
