Welcome to my woodturning site. I am based on the outskirts of Huddersfield, West Yorkshire and have been turning wood for over 40 years.
I concentrate on turning one-off pieces working with more difficult or unusual pieces of locally grown timber – making use of the natural shape of the tree by exposing the grain or ‘defects’ within it in an interesting and/or sympathetic way. I particularly enjoy working with burred or damaged material, revealing the beauty within the wood and letting its shape and form suggest the design of the finished piece. All the timber I use is either reclaimed or sourced locally, here in Yorkshire. Each unique piece is individually hand turned and then finished using natural waxes or oils.
