More than just wooden bowls…

Terry Vaughan makes wooden bowls for sale

Welcome!  To see and buy my wooden bowls and other work, please scroll down the page.

As well as making beautiful hand-turned wooden bowls, I offer woodturning classes. 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 please. 

I work with some of the most beautiful English hardwoods, sustainably sourced. Almost all of it is material that would otherwise be lost. The best timber for making wooden bowls for sale often comes from trees that have fallen naturally in the woods or at the roadside.  I also use timber reclaimed from previous use for some of my work.

Purchases are dispatched promptly by first class post at a flat rate of £3.75 for each order, so you save when buying two or more items together.

I regret that due to other commitments I am unable to undertake commissions.

Learn about making wooden bowls

There is lots of information about woodturning here. You can find out how to keep bowls in good condition on my wood care page. 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. Learn about the different kinds of woodturning, and about the history of the craft. You can see my woodturning blog, which is a useful technical resource for woodturners.

Woodturning classes

With many years’ experience, I offer one-to-one woodturning classes in London, working either with a single student or a class of two. They are a taster experience so that complete beginners can try woodturning for themselves and make their own beautiful wooden bowls to take home. This could be just the gift idea you are looking for.

My classes are suitable for people who want to try woodturning, perhaps before getting deeper into it, people who don’t have their own workshop facilities, turners who want to improve their skills and woodworkers who want to add turning to their skills. Also for anyone who just wants to spend an afternoon having fun and trying something completely new!
