The excitement of turning wood is to see the wood reveal itself as the piece emerges.


Just a few lines about me ……

I’m Martin Sanders and I started wood turning in 1966. Not to mislead you I have to admit that my second attempt was not until 2009 !

I learned my craft under the guidance of some eminent wood turners including Dave Register at West Dean College, Melvyn Firmager, a world renowned and extraordinarily gifted turner based in Somerset and my mentor and good friend Paul Wilcocks at the Bell House Turnery.

The excitement of turning for me is to let the outcome be a surprise result of my imagination, the techniques and skills I deploy and, of course, the wood which will reveal itself as the piece emerges.  Everyone is therefore unique.

I hope you like  them and are able to see the full collection in Stratford on Avon in November.
