I cannot say I have any particular style or anything that I prefer to turn. If an idea comes to me I try it out and I will use any type of wood. That’s what it’s all about isn’t it – experimentation?

When you are a wood turner you also develop an ear for a chainsaw working anywhere within the area and then you realise you have developed the new skill of tracking by ear. A friendly chat with a tree surgeon usually results in a few more pieces of tree being added to your collection.
