My Lathes:- Two VB36 long and short bed, Two Union Graduates long and short bed - Turn British!
Due to a change in career circumstances the opportunity arose to finally do something I am passionate about. Woodturning Tuition in the form of individual lessons, and day courses are available using these lathes.
All my Lathes are British made! My first Lathe was a long bed VB36 Hegner Lathe which I have now had for over 10 years from new. I recently purchased a display model short bed VB36 to use for lessons. My other two lathes are Union Graduates - one short and one long bed which although old, both have been refurbished with new motors and Variable Speed Controls. All my lathes are suitable for beginners and have been fitted with safety foot switches and 'bang off' buttons just in case you need to stop the lathe in an emergency. Short bed lathes are ideal for hollow forms and bowl turning whereas the long base ones are good for bowl and spindle turning.
Give me a ring or email to ask any questions about my work or to book a lesson AND AVAILABILITY.

WORKSHOP & WOODSTORE
Situated in a wonderfully quiet rural location you can relax and turn to your delight watching the woodpeckers and bullfinches on the feeder outside the workshop window! Red Kites have been spotted the last couple of years with frequent calling of Buzzards overhead throughout the day. In the summer months lunch is held outside on the decking beside the pond, in the winter it is in our lounge overlooking the pond.
