I turn a wide range of Wood ware, Boxes, Bowls, specialising in Hand Thread Chasing. Woods used are all hardwoods, locally sourced in the Highlands of Scotland and include Ash, Beech, Spalted Beech, Birch, Silver Birch, Cherry, Elm, Wych Elm, Burr Elm, which has a character all of it’s own, Sycamore, Yew , Lime, and many more.
I can never reproduce a piece exactly because all my work is hand-made and each piece of wood is unique. However, I take pride in my woodturning and if there is something you particularly like then contact me.
Wood is natural
Engraving is done by Hand. Scenes are far ranging which the customer can decide; these are engraved onto Glass, Mirrors, Brass and Copper etc. Mirrors can give a better perspective of the design.
