Having successfully completed the AWGB Approved Trainer course and assessment I now deliver one to one training in my own well equipped workshop just outside of Chesterfield. I can also provide local one to one training in your own workshop helping you to get the most from your own lathe and turning tools.


Please contact me to discuss your requirements.​​
