Welcome to Creative Woodturning

The turned items shown here are a sample of Paul’s woodturning, produced in his workshop in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire. There is a selection of individual turned wooden bowls, vases, goblets etc. some are purely decorative and some are functional. Each one is hand made and great attention is paid to the form and finish with the aim that each piece is both pleasing to the eye and tactile. Paul’s woodturning also includes pieces enhanced with texturing, carving or colour so the permutations open to the woodturner are almost endless. Feel free to browse the woodturning gallery pages or woodturning shop and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask. If you are unable to find what you want, specific commissions can be produced if required. Contact Paul for more details and to discuss your requirements.

Wood for the Woodturner

Paul uses many different species of timber for turning and the main focus is on artistic or creative woodturning. Wood is the material of choice both for its unique characteristics and properties and because of its seemingly endless variations in appearance and character. Wood is not only the raw material but also the inspiration for many of the pieces produced.

A wide range of different types of wood are used for woodturning, both locally grown in the UK and imported. The imported timbers are obtained through reputable suppliers who use managed sources.
