Pete Osborn taught Woodwork in various schools in the North West of England for over 30 years. Since retiring from teaching he has concentrated on Woodturning. He uses quite a lot of local hardwood from trees that have fallen in gales and other timbers that are used are either reclaimed or from sustainable sources. The items he makes are sometimes useful (e.g. fruit bowls) or sometimes ornamental (e.g. goblets), but all are finished to a high standard using the best quality polishes, oils and waxes.
He is currently Chairman of the Eden Valley Woodturners group and an active committee member with the Cumbria Woodturners Association.
