Not just wooden bowls…

Working with care and pride here in the UK, I make beautiful hand-turned wooden bowls, and other things too. If you are looking for a great gift for a wedding or birthday, or just a stocking filler, you will find it here. Whatever you choose, it’s guaranteed to delight its new owner. Here is what people say about my work. To see what I make, click on the category links below or on the right of the page.

I work with the most attractive English hardwoods. It’s my policy to use only sustainably sourced timber that would otherwise be lost. Fallen trees from the woods, garden clearance and timber reclaimed from previous use. When making individual wooden bowls for sale, often the best turning timber comes from sources such as these.

I charge for first class postage and packing at a flat rate of £3.75 for each order, so you save when buying two or more items together.

Learn about woodturning

At the top of the page there are links to lots of information about woodturning. I hope you will find it interesting. I describe how I make wooden bowls for sale, and you can read about the features of the wood I use, such as burrs and spalting. You can see how I make my cute little wooden mice. You can learn about the different kinds of woodturning, and about the history of the craft. There is information about wood care for people who own my work. You can also see my woodturning blog, which is a useful technical resource for woodturners.

Woodturning tuition

With many years’ experience, I offer one-to-one woodturning lessons in London. Whether you are a complete beginner, or someone who has already taken up woodturning and wants to improve their skills, I can help. Proper tuition can give you a sound foundation to build on. I also offer a taster experience so that anyone can try woodturning for themselves and make their own beautiful bowl to take home. This might be just the thing for someone who doesn’t have their own workshop, or someone who simply wants an insight into the craft. It could be just the gift idea you are looking for.
