Woodturning by Richard Findley
The Turner's Workshop is a small business owned and operated by Richard Findley, from his workshop in Wigston, Leicestershire. Specialising in bespoke hand turning of everything from one-off prototypes to small production runs for the woodworking trade and the general public.
This website shows a small snapshot of the range of work that I am able to undertake. All items are made to order, by hand, which means that the finest quality craftsmanship is guaranteed. I do not use automatic copy lathes and specialise is small production runs and prototyping from a single item to around 100 or more, all on my 1950 Wadkin RS8 lathe.
Having spent 12 years as a joiner and been involved in the shop fitting trade before becoming a full time woodturner, I am able to offer expert advice on all aspects of woodworking, including the correct use of different timbers, preparation, working properties and care of the finished products.
I am an established woodturning demonstrator on the circuit and am happy to demonstrate at clubs and shows. I have demonstrated at some very prestigious events including international seminars in the UK, Ireland and in the USA. Take a look at the demonstration page for more information.
