I enjoy both the artistic and production sides of woodturning. My works include natural edge, and colour and embellishment (airbrush, pryography, dremel and carving). I turn ambidextrously, so I am able to help with left-handed turners.
My goals as a demonstrator are to share knowledge and encourage inspiration amongst woodworkers and get them to try and push the boundaries. I am willing to demonstrate almost anything given appropriate preparation time, and I am willing to travel anywhere in NZ as long as there is a reasonable travel allowance. For longer distances, arrangement of more than one demonstration would be appreciated. Please contact me to discuss options.

Lathe tools & safety
Selection & preparation of timber
Form and design
Colour and embellishment - Carving, Dremel,
pyrography, pewter inlays
