Bill built his own wood lathe many years ago, he loves turning timber and has made countless projects over the years so much so Bill built his own shed specifically for woodworking jobs.
Bill has worked in the metal engineering industry for over 50 years, working mainly in steel fabrication, machining & general engineering. Working on projects from the size of fishing reels to bulldozers.
Bill's transition to wood was relatively easy with his previous experience, he manufactured his own wood lathe and wood working equipment. Making dozens of stools over the years he decided to make some for the MOST exhibition 2023
He uses wood collected from fallen trees which includes a huge variety of timber.
