While I was working in a run of the mill job I found myself wondering what it was all about and started looking for alternatives. I wanted to work from home so I could spend more time with my young family. Wood turning had been a hobby of mine for some time and in 2010 I took the decision to do wood turning full time.
I have developed my own style along the way creating my own ideas and designs, both classic and contemporary and can now say I am addicted to all things wood!
I enjoy the freedom, creativity and limitless variety of woodturning; turning what is seen by some as firewood into something beautifully unique. The product is as much a pleasure to handle as it is to look at.
I pay particular attention to all aspects of creation to ensure each piece is of the highest standard. If I am not happy then it will be turned into something smaller or added to the ‘posh’ firewood pile. This, along with my desire to produce striking yet functional items, is what my reputation will be based upon.
I specialise in the use of local timbers and use only wood that would otherwise go to waste. I never use wood that has solely been cut down for the purpose of wood turning.
I want to be the person you turn to when you are looking for that special gift for someone or just want to treat yourself to a stunning piece of turned wood.
