This website shows a small snapshot of the wide 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 in small production runs and prototyping from a single item to 100 or more on my Wadkin RS8 lathe.
Having spent 12 years as a joiner and been involved in the shopfitting 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 finished products.
I am an established 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 the USA. Take a look at the demonstration page for more information.
