              I am especially proud of the

Segmented Vase shown below

( it was based on a design by Michael Foster )  

        It was chosen for the

     A.W.G.B Travelling Exhibition  2017 / 2018

         and was taken to various shows

around the UK



We are both young OAP's and we live in a picturesque village in Essex.

This site covers hobbies and crafts that we are involved in albeit we are only amateurs.


Following my shoulder operation in December 2017 
I was told 6 - 12 months taking things steady so no Woodturning.    I started Machine Embroidery and really enjoy it so I now have Framed Embroidery on my Craft Stall

When I was at school I was not allowed to do sport of any kind due to health problems, so I opted for extra woodwork, and have worked in the wood trade ever since.

Having been presented with a small lathe as a retirement present, I thought I'd try turning some pens. The results aren't too bad. Have a look and let us know what you think.


                         I have had a new shed erected solely for the purpose of woodturning, and have acquired a second lathe, so I have now progressed  on to other turning besides pens. I'd like to get more into Segmented Turning as they give you the WOW factor !!!
