Mike Bentley has over 40 years experience as a wood turner, specialising in working with 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.
He particularly enjoys 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 is either reclaimed or sourced locally, here in Yorkshire. Each unique piece is individually hand turned and then finished using natural waxes or oils.
