I have appeared many times in the Woodturning Magazine which is the worlds leading magazine for Woodturners. Achieving many accolades such as covers of the day on the World of Woodturning, members choice on the Woodworkers institute.
I turn a wide range of Wooden-ware, Boxes, Bowls, Wall-Art, Contemporary Woodturning.
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, Burr Oak which has a character all of their 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 at firstname.lastname@example.org. as Commissions are always very welcome.
Wood is natural
Although I take care to ensure that the wood I use is dry, and seasoned naturally as possible, wood is a product of nature and as such, can in some conditions split or have some natural imperfections. Wood should never be placed in direct sunlight or near heat sources, as sunlight will fade the woods colour and heat may cause splitting.
Available for demonstrations to Clubs, these can be tailored to your needs, and if you have a venue and would like a demonstration by all means get in touch. Demonstration charges vary so please contact me for prices.
Items are available at Aurorabearealis in North Kessock near Inverness.
