I'm a woodturner from the Macarthur district, south west outskirts of Sydney, Australia.
I love wood in all it's forms and I don't think there is a wood I don't like. I feel there is a magical property to wood and each and every squar inch has beauty to be revealed. I especially like to use wood I collect my self, whether it is fresh, seasoned, old & weathered or scavenged building material or a hundred year old fence post ! it all has something to offer and it's my job to reveal & present it the best i can. I can not explain the joy and excitement I get as I uncover the different figures, colours, patterns and features.
I am a member and trainer of the Macarthur Woodturners inc. Although I have had no formal training, i'm proud to add my small contribution to keeping this craft alive. .
