I started turning wood just over twenty years ago - it has become a wonderful outlet for my enjoyment and creativity. I have always been fascinated by the look and feel of wood, but turning gives me the chance to put this amazing material to use.

Most of the wood I use is from trees native to the United Kingdom. Most of it I acquire as a gift from a friend or neighbour. I then convert the tree into pieces of suitable size for turning.

I have received help and guidance from a number of amazingly skilled professional turners: particularly Phil Irons, and previously Dave Bates. They have inspired me to develop my own skills and achieve some forms which please the eye.
