Turning since 1990

I’ve been turning wood since 1990. Starting as a production turner I worked to produce both classic-functional and one-off artistic pieces for homes and collections. Over the years I have been fortunate to learn from some of the most respected masters of my craft and I’m privileged to be able to pass that knowledge on.

At my Woodturning Study Centre in Co. Carlow, Ireland I teach all levels of ability in group classes and one-to-one tuition. Travelling the world for demonstrations and classes in woodturning, you can also watch me turn in your own workshop with my ‘Mastering Woodturning’ series of DVDs and downloadable videos. My website can be used to book classes, buy woodturning tools and DVDs, or purchases of my bowls. Send me your email and I will add you to my newsy ezine and we will keep in touch!

These DVDs are very, very well done …I highly recommend them, because even the most knowledgeable turner will find them interesting, and the new and intermediate turners will find a great deal of information to learn.

It was superb… outstanding. It is one of the best not just because of the technical content but the artistic attention you gave to the final output. It really reflects your wonderful sense of artistic style.

I can honestly say if I could only have one DVD in my library, this would be it.
