The old teacher in me has not left and having some 40 odd years of experience in turning and in helping others to learn the skills and joys of this wonderful subject, I am now in a position to offer one 2 one training, support and am available to give demonstrations to like minded people.
If you are a newcomer to making piles of sawdust and shavings, or you have given it a go and would like to know more or just want to develop your skills, rest assured that you will get a warm welcome and a very personal and professional approach to your needs.

I have two fully equipped lathes at my disposal complete with a fully functional workshop for you to use. What maybe unique is that I can also offer training at your premises. I can bring a lathe and a basic set of tools or we can use your equipment; whichever you prefer!

If you are thinking of purchasing turning equipment, need repairs or want to upgrade then I am happy to help in any way I can. I also have at any one time a variety of equipment for sale or hire - this again is probably unique within this fraternity!

Before considering any training sessions please telephone or email to discuss your requirements; full/half days can be tailored specifically for your needs.
Why be shy? Don't let the moment go by.


We have had 2 fabulous training days with Richard. He is passionate about wood turning and really helps you understand all about the wood, the tools and the machinery. He is a patient teacher who is flexible to each persons needs. We came home on a high with various items that we created and eager to start turning ourselves. We would highly recommend a wood turning day with Richard, your life will never be the same again!
