Forest of Kent

Artisan woodturning discovering the beauty of wood.

For me wood turning is like treasure hunting, as I turn the wood I uncover the treasure hidden inside. The shape and colours I use should be what a picture frame is to a picture. They should show the wood off to its best effect. I like to use either reclaimed wood or wood that was destined for the fire. My aim, working with nature, is to create beautiful and unique pieces. I collect most of my wood from community wood recycling projects and from local tree surgeons. I dry and prepare the wood for turning and wait until inspiration strikes and tells me what type of object and shape it should be.
