Pole lathe greenwood turning is my passion. My enthusiasm for this ancient craft began many years ago when I first came across ‘bodging’ – the traditional craft of greenwood turning. Bodging was developed in medieval times and later used for creating fine furniture including the classic Windsor chair.More recently I have broadened my interests and now create my own style of greenwood furniture as well as traditionally crafted wooden household utensils.
