On the Register of The Worshipful Company of Woodturners


“Welcome! I have been woodturning since 1977 and now produce a variety of work of the highest quality, mostly from trees grown in Cornwall and Devon. This site will give you an idea of what I can produce and although every item is unique,          



similar works of art can be made upon request. Please feel free to contact me by telephone or email to discuss your requirements or to arrange a time to visit in person.


Special commissions accepted!

Monkey Puzzle Bowls 12" diameter  

My work can be found in New Zealand, America, Canada, Australia and Europe.

I work mainly with timber, which is either dead or storm damaged.

My bowls and vases are partly turned as soon as possible after obtaining the tree, they are then left to air dry for a period of 2/3 years, before being returned to the lathe and shaped to a high quality finish using mainly Danish Oil.
