Good afternoon! I hope you’re all well? Mark is down the workshop this afternoon doing various turning-related tasks so I thought I would jump in the hot seat. It has been a busy week so far as it has been our repro deadline. Doesn’t time fly?! All has gone smoothly, which is good, and now we’re beg ...

The sun is shining and the day is young, but already I have a list of things that stretch into the evening. Isn’t that sad? Mind you, that is no different for many of you. I will, however, be having – as my children call it – a later tonight. I am meeting up with Bert Marsh. I think we are due to go ...

Tegan, Anthony and I are out of the office today completing a profile and a photo shoot, which is always interesting. I love having the chance to see other peoples’ workshops and what they make, what kit they have and how they do things. I also love hearing their tales of how they got started in woo ...

I also heard this wonderful story, rumoured to be true, about a retailer who had a customer asking for some 3ft high chicken wire. The retailer s ...

It has been a busy week all round, but we have cover options for issue 215 to do and Mark is also helping out with a new book. I’ve been stuck in the office all week, but as I say, there has been plenty to do a ...

Hello all, I’m sure most of you would have noticed that spring is finally here, and as a result, life seems a bit more bearable! As most of you also know, I’ve been ill for 3 weeks now (yes, I know, a long time!) but the sun and the warmer weather is definitely helping. Also, the good weather is a g ...

The sun is out and there are more and more flowers showing. The leaves are starting to unfurl on the trees and we shall soon see spring properly and not through a water or mist laden haze. Three is something about spring and how we al react accordingly to the sight of the sun and the vibrancy of the ...

I am now back in the office and we are getting a magazine through the final stages of reproduction prior to going to press. Whilst it was a nice Easter break, the magazine is never far from my mind - four phone calls from various parts of the world made sure of that. It is something that can never b ...

Hello! Unfortunately I have been suffering with a bout of flu since I last wrote a blog. It has been almost a week now and I am still feeling awful! Great timing! I’m glad to see that the sun has decided to come out today, although, judging by the weather forecast, the Easter break is going to be a  ...
