A recently retired civil engineer who has always liked working with wood but never tried turning - and now has the time to try it out. Still an absolute beginner but completely hooked
I have been turning and a club member for 10 years. I am self-taught and can be seen regularly at craft fairs.

I have been turning as a creative pastime for more than 20 years, many of which were in developing countries (where I made many of my own tools). I have a current interest in hollow-forms and thin wall, pierced turning, and in using highly figured local hardwoods.

I am originally from Birmingham and have lived in Hereford for the last 19 years and have been turning for 10 years. During this time, I have covered all aspects of turning and enjoy the various finishes that can be achieved.

Spent 20 years as a builder and then 20 years working for local government, just started wood turning and busy gathering together all the tools and resources, learning as I go along, great to see others work, listen to talks and get ideas from presenters and other members.

I retired early and moved to Hereford from Surrey in 2018. Later the same year I joined the HWT club, bought a lathe and began to fulfill a lifetime ambition to learn to turn. The club's classes, demos and tutoring have been excellent. All I have to do now is practice more.
