Over the last 15 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 timber sourced locally 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.

He is also in demand for commissioned pieces, also producing a variety of work from spindles for builders and kitchen designers to finials for antique repairers.

Steve is in demand as a woodturning teacher both at his workshop near Newbury, Berkshire or at John Davis Woodturning Centre in Stockbridge, Hampshire or The Toolpost in Didcot Oxfordshire from where he runs woodturning courses.

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.
