I am George Smith, Thanks for taking the time to look at my site.
I have been wood turning now for 20+ Years and Enjoy my Hobby a lot. Because I like to Make Lots Of nice things I Have been showing off my work at Craft Fairs and county shows through out the UK and some parts of Europe.
I built my own workshop with my son and oldest brother Fred, around 20 Years ago. Its 14 x 6ft it took just five days to complete including the roof being felted , two days after we started the heavens opened and we finished the rest of it under a tarp sheet 18×22 . I have a wonderful View of Whitby’s Esk Valley From Where I Stand to do my turning.
I first taught David, My Grandson how to Turn he was 8 coming on 9 yrs of age, when he asked could he learn to do wood turning, so I took him on to my workshop on his 9th birthday he loved it took to it like a duck to water, I put a piece of 2×2 into my lathe and David turned it round with a roughing down gauge then with smaller gauge he made some shapes in it and still has that piece to this day.
David loves going to the wood turning shows especially the one at Harrogate every November. I think that he will find time to do some turning when he is older.
