Over the last 17 years or so Steve's natural talent and feel for the materials he works with has produced some inspirational work and in 2008 he took the plunge, and became a full time woodturner.

Where possible he works with local timber from sustainable sources. He produces functional pieces such as bowls, platters, plates (treen), intricate decorative artistic pieces, and a variety of intriguing boxes and vessels. Sculptural works of art to hang on the wall or display on a table.

His production turning ranges from spindles for builders, furniture makers and kitchen designers to finials, feet and knobs for antique repairers and rustic bowls for furniture designers.

Steve is in demand as a woodturning teacher at his workshop in Newbury, Berkshire covering the Hampshire, Wiltshire and Oxfordshire areas to mention but a few. He can also teach in your workshop if required, please contact him to discuss this requirement.

In 2010 Steve was accepted on to the Register of Professional Turners, including The Worshipful Company of Turners, and is also a member of the (AWGB) Association of Woodturners of Great Britain.
