I am based in North Yorkshire, England, and lucky to have been born & bred in the Yorkshire Dales.

After finishing secondary school at the age of 16, I was keen to start working with wood and begin apprenticeships in Joinery and Cabinet Making. It was around this time that I had my first experience of woodturning. Now, I have over 30 years of experience in Joinery, Carpentry & Cabinet Making.

More recently, after many years of back trouble, I underwent spinal fusion surgery and following that came a new work approach. I decided to concentrate more on smaller projects to avoid any heavy lifting – that was when the woodturning bug began!

In March 2018 I started my YouTube channel making wood and wood & resin pieces. By July 2018 I reached 100k subscribers & amazingly in July 2020 I reached 1 million subscribers!

Many thanks to all of you that have paid an interest in my work and subscribed to my channel on YouTube, and for following me on Instagram & Facebook.

Here on my website, you can see photos of my recent work, my workshop and find links to my YouTube videos, Instagram, and Facebook page. If any of my pieces come up for sale, they will be available here in the online shop.
