Began turning in 1990 with ornamental pieces, added production hand turning in 1993.  Predominantly do ecclesiastical and restoration work now, but happy to look at a range of turned requirements from one offs to small and large production runs.  Can incorporate e.g. fluted sections to turned pieces, working from your designs, or can offer a design and produce service in a range of timbers with a maximum spindle length of 2.4m and faceplate work of up to 0.6m diameter.  Relocated to Thornhill Scotland in late 2023.
