Woodturning

Turning wood on a lathe is a very old form of wood working. Originally a technique to make rustic domestic ware like cups and plates and also axles, woodturning has evolved into an art form in its own right. Nearly all native wood can be turned, and turning wood is a great way to show the character, grain and colour of the timber which surrounds us.

You might have a favourite tree in your garden which has blown down, or has to be felled by the tree surgeon. This is a very eco-friendly source of wood. I can make something on my lathe for you to remember your tree by. Perhaps a fruit bowl or a decorative platter. The choice is yours.
