I am currently adding content to this area of the site – so that this page will become a gallery for the turned items and greenwood products that I make. I sell these items at shows when I am demonstrating.
I don’t have a large stock and am often making things at shows to fill gaps. I don’t tend to do commissions or special orders but if there is something you really like please ask me – there may be one available. I hope this season to be able to work out how to sell direct as well as through shows and events.
I make a range of items turned on a traditional foot powered polelathe, including household items (treen), garden items, tool handles and bowls. All of these products are made using locally sourced native English hardwoods and preferably I will have felled or cleared the tree myself during the winter season when I am working as a woodsman. Often this wood is disposed of as wastewood or used as firewood.

Bowls - I have also started to make a range of bowls using the polelathe. I have invested a lot of time and effort into learning how to make both the special tools and the bowls and I hope to be able to start selling these bowls this season.
Hand crafted wooden bowls turned on a foot powered pole lathe and using sustainable local English native wood.
I make a range of traditional coppice products including Besom brooms, Hay rakes, bean poles, pea sticks, barbecue charcoal, artists charcoal and charcoal fines for soil improvement.
Traditional besoms made using winter cut young birch spray bundled and stored for making brooms, as they have been made in my village for hundreds of years. The local pub was reputedly first built on the profits (once drunk) of the local broom squires who numbered 38 in this parish alone during the 19th Century.
Bean Poles, Stakes and Pea-sticks
I have bundles of birch Bean-Poles (7’6 length 11 for £4 ) and Pea-sticks (10 for £3) available when in season (roughly February to June). You can collect them at shows I will be demonstrating at (see show list) or direct from me if you live in the Haslemere area (email me firstname.lastname@example.org or call me on 07787 536035 for more details).
