Working with wood

John took up woodturning as a hobby over 15 years ago. Over the past decade time has been limited to spend on hobbies (two sets of twins and full time work as a carpenter…), so it is great to now have the opportunity to work on some of the timber that has been collected and well seasoned for turning.

Each timber has it’s own colour and character and every piece is individual – ash, beech, apple and yew are some of the woods used in his work. He is also producing a range of functional kitchen timberware – hardwood chopping boards from beech, pear and elm have been very popular at UL Farmer’s Market and he is working on other kitchen accessories for the coming season.

John will be demonstrating finishing work on his mini lathe at one of the markets at UL during the Spring. We will post info on the date when we have it.

We Would Love To Here From You!
