I have always enjoyed working
with wood. The school I attended had a lathe; however, we never had the
opportunity to use it. I taught myself from an early age.
My love for wood turning dates
back to 1986. I bought my first book called "Creative Woodturning" by
Dale R Nish.
I joined the Western Cape
Woodturners Association in 1995 and due to their encouragement and advice I
grew from strength to strength.
I enjoy working with any piece
of wood that has a natural flaw to it. I try to create something out of
the natural elements in order to give back to mother nature and showcase the
beauty of what lies beneath the bark.
