Welcome to the From the Wood website! I have been cabinet making and woodturning since 2003, although 90+% of my work now is turning or carving. One Good Turn is the brand name I apply to my work and feature on my sign, business cards and stationery.  I sell my work at specialist sales events and through art galleries, or direct to discerning people through personal contact or (once the online shop has been completed) via this website.

Please use the Gallery pages to view some examples of my work. This site is being continuously developed to provide you, the visitor, with access to my work to allow you to decide if it is what you are interested in. If it is, I hope you will be tempted to follow up by placing an order or an enquiry. But if not, I hope you at least find something of interest before you move on!

Enquiries and commissions are welcome, please visit my contacts page to discuss your requirements.

The name One Good Turn isn’t unique and I know there is another turner In Scotland who uses the same name (Bob Fleet – a very nice guy and a traditional wood work and pole-lathe enthusiast) and probably several more in Australia, the USA, Canada (check out Brian McEvoy’s website)  and elsewhere, but it’s very descriptive of what I do and aspire to and I have applied it to every piece I have made since 2003.
