I have had an interest in all things woodworking since I was a very young lad. My first attempts at woodturning were during woodwork classes at high school. I was inspired and encouraged by my woodwork teacher Haywood Berridge and the satisfaction from working with wood has never left me. I am an Advanced Trade Certificate qualified Carpenter and Joiner and spent all of my working life in the construction industry in a variety of roles, including almost twelve years as an officer in the army Corps of Engineers. I have continued with my passion for woodworking and woodturning into retirement
