Sue Harker's Potted History

My journey into woodturning started at the turn of the Millennium when I bought my Husband Graham a lathe for his Birthday.  Snainton Woodworking Supplies where I bought the lathe, run a beginners night for those who have purchased a lathe from them.  I started to go along with Graham for the social side of the evening and to show an interest in his new hobby.  Before long I was so enchanted with the beauty of timber and the endless possibilities available to the holder of the tools, I had to have a go.  I was so taken that by the end of the year (my birthday and Christmas) I was the proud owner of my own lathe and chuck.

 

I joined two woodturning clubs and began to see professional demonstrations; these were a source of inspiration and a wealth of invaluable information.  As my turning improved I started to enter club, Northern Federation and National competitions with great success.  These competitions and my desire to create something different were responsible for the development of my open segment work and with it the design of my open segment wheel.

 

By 2006 I was becoming well known for my open segment turning and was being asked to demonstrate at Clubs, Woodworking Shows and Retail Outlets across England. Through popular demand I now produce and sell a range of open segment wheels

 

In January 2007 I was accepted onto the Register of Professional Turners run by the Worshipful Company of Turners, London and the icing on the cake came in late March of 2007 when The Worshipful Company of Turners awarded me a Bursary.

 Reg Sherwin: Which Way Do I Turn?
 A course in Spindle Turning
 Eight DVD series
 available individually or as a box set 

Reg Sherwin - A potted history Reg. Sherwin became a self taught woodturner in 1966, starting out with a lathe attachment for a power drill. By 1968 Reg. had gone through the usual hobby turner stages of power drill lathe, home made ‘lathe’ and ‘real’ lathe, which was in fact a Coronet Minor combination machine. In 1969 Reg. was working in the aircraft components industry when redundancy struck and so, armed with the ‘real’ lathe, Reg. set out as a self employed woodturner to conquer the world. The next few years saw Reg. surviving a number of adventures in the repetition turning trade and also a two year excursion into employing nine operators. Reg’s first woodturning article was published by G.M.C. Publications in 1981, and he wrote regularly for G.M.C. from that date. His ‘Diary of a Woodturner’ became ‘Reg. Sherwin’s Column’, and the last one, number 113, appeared in November 1998. His book, ‘Pleasure and Profit from Woodturning’ was published in 1987. He now writes regular articles, reports and reviews and has also designed woodturning equipment. He has demonstrated and taught up and down the U.K. and also internationally and works from a specially designed teaching workshop at Avoncroft Museum of Historic Buildings in the Midlands. Reg is on the Register of Professional Turners, is a founder member of the Association of Woodturners of Great Britain, and was awarded Lifetime Membership of the association in 2005, ‘For Services to Woodturning’. Having written something approaching 200 instructional articles on woodturning, this DVD set is his first venture into instruction through the moving image.

This is the one that everybody's been asking for! An improved format from the first film, we used three digital cameras with an overhead gantry arrangement providing a unique "birds-eye" perspective that works so well, you've just got to see the film to believe it! The second camera provides the wide perspective shots and the third takes you through an "up-the-arm" perspective.

Andy's superb blend of humour and skill, will mean that you'll have to set-aside three and a half hours to yourself because once you press play on your DVD player...you won't be able to move until the entire film has played!

Projects are: Apple, Pear, Lemon, Plum, Cherries, Grapes and Satsuma. The film culminates with Stems & Stalks and finally: Finishing.

This is one film we guarantee you will want to watch...again...and again...and again!
