Heritage       Wood Turning       Pole Lathe














My name is Stuart and I am a heritage woodturner based in Cumbria who uses traditional lathes, mostly the pole lathe, to create turned items. I have a selection of characters from different periods of time who can be hired for events to demonstrate various types of wood turning. From a Medieval Bowl Turner to Victorian Bodger, an interesting and educational addition to any event. Check out the wood turning page to discover more and meet the characters!

I love creating items out of wood and am happy to sell some of my wares. Hopefully in the future I will have an online shop but until then I aim to sell some products at local events, so keep an eye out for me.

Along side this and my other work in the heritage sector I am chairman and member of living history group Iron Shepherds. The group showcases the Anglo Norman period of British history and can be seen at various Cumbrian events across the summer season.
