I’ve had a life time of pleasure working with timber as a Carpenter and Joiner.

I've used its endless versatility to make Joinery, Woodcarving and Sculpture and I've also worked on projects with Schools.

My work has been published in the press and in Woodworker, Woodcarving, Understanding Woodcarving and Lancashire Life magazines.

You can see all of these on my Facebook page Publications 

I've constructed a website called 'My Timber Timeline'. Some people write a book about themselves, I've made a website

Please, take the time to visit my website and Facebook pages and you will see what I've accomplished over the years
