Frequently Asked Questions

Do you teach more advanced lessons?

Yes. Anyone embarking on a woodturning career or just looking to hone their skills, Joe offers advanced woodturning courses, enabling you to focus on particular areas or learn new techniques  and become more precise and efficient in your woodturning craft.

What is the secret to good woodturning?

“Patience. There is no such thing as a mistake in woodturning, only learning opportunities. Although I would say it pays to pay attention to the shape of your piece as it is being turned, rather than the cutting edge of your tool. This comes with practice.”

Which materials can you work with? 

“I often use damaged wood by natural causes to give it a new lease of life, this means they are both recycled and locally sourced. Likewise if you have a particular commission you have in mind, I can source almost any wood for you.”
