Well, I am well and truly exhausted, I have only one Christmas present left to buy and I am looking forward to some time off. This year has been a very busy one and also very exciting too. More clubs have opened up and I am seeing more experimentation with work from turners when I am on my travels.  ...

The woodworking department is in overdrive as its all hands on deck to meet our Christmas deadlines. We are also working on a special supplement, so as you can imagine, it’s a tad busy!  ...

My colleague Simon was kind enough to write the feature, but I car ...

The week is nearly up and I will be on holiday thereafter for a few days. I am very much looking forward to the break and that will come just at a time before the squeezed Christmas production cycles.

It has been a hectic week. I spent two days at the Wizardry in Wood exhibition and then in the office to playing catch up. The joys of such events are not only seeing a rich diversity of work, but also seeing how peoples’ work has developed and changed over the years. Sometimes people take a radical ...
