Welcome to Forest of Kent Woodturning

Forest of Kent is taking part in the Virtual Makers Fair until 6 th June, in conjunction with the Saltaire Arts Trail 2021 programme. Visit for more information. For me woodturning is like treasure hunting, as I turn the wood I uncover the treasure hidden inside. The shape and colours I use should be what a picture frame is to a picture. They should show the wood off to its best effect. I like to use either reclaimed wood or wood that was destined for the fire. My aim, working with nature, is to create beautiful and unique pieces. Based in Lancashire, I collect most of my wood from community wood recycling projects and from local tree surgeons. I dry and prepare the wood for turning and wait until the wood tells me what type of object and shape it should be. I like to work with the grain, the figure, the bark, the burrs and even any rot in order to bring out the beauty in the wood. I am happy to take commissions.

Returns policy

If you are unhappy with your purchase please return it to me providing it is not damaged and I will give you a full refund. If it is damaged on arrival please notify me immediately. All the wood I use is air dried by me and finished items are stored in a centrally heated room. For this reason the wood should not move or crack. If it does, within, the first 3 months I will give you a full refund. Please do not keep your purchase near direct sources of heat.
