I started wood-turning back in September 2007.when I went to night classes for a number of years and progressed from there.
I have always worked with wood, at the age of 16 I started working in a sawmill by the age 18 I was working a large band saw that could cut 24″by 24″ logs. We used to make 12″ by 2″ *1″any plank you would ever need . At age 19 I was put behind a six head power planer making skirting boards, you name it I made it.
I then moved jobs and started working with a carpenter contractor for a number of years
I have worked as a carpenter up to 2007,
I have not worked full time since then due to health problems
I am soon to start working part time all going well,
I love making stuff from wood and metal plastics I love wood-turning most because you can make things fast and can have a wonderful piece made in a matter of minutes, well sometimes :-)
I make these videos so others can learn from them and inspire them to make their Own pieces
take care Robbie
