Woodturning Through The Ages
Wednesday, February 2, 2011
Despite being ill (again) I’ve had a good day so far and it started with me receiving some great new pieces of work from some new woodturners, so thanks to all of you who have been sharing your pieces with us. I’m looking forward to working with Andrew James of Wye Valley Woodturning and getting some pieces into the magazine. Facebook is a great way of discovering woodturning groups out there and also for sharing your work with others, regardless of geographical boundaries. Have a look yourself and discover what other turners have been doing around the world.
In other news, issue 224 of Woodturning is on sale tomorrow, so make sure you get your copy if you haven’t already.

We’ve had some great feedback so far, and I hope you like what we’ve featured for you this month.
I’ve just finished subbing a very interesting article today for issue 226, written by Mike Darlow. The feature looks at a professional turner who was born in 1598 – Neremiah Wallington. Neremiah lived in London, just to the north and east of London Bridge, and died just eight years before the Great Fire of London. His father was a successful and notable woodturner and was a master of the Turners’ Company. Anyway, you’ll have to see next month’s issue to read more, but I can honestly say that it is a riveting read.
Have fun in your workshops,
