The Southeastern Chapter of the Irish Woodturners Guild provides a meeting place for members and guests to share ideas and techniques on woodturning, trade woods, exchange ideas about tools, and display their work to their fellow members. The chapter members meet on the third Saturday of each month at a members workshop where all aspects of the craft are demonstrated and ideas discussed. Our members come from Counties Wexford, Waterford, Kilkenny, and Tipperary. The members hold a major exhibition of their work each year (mid August) in The Ormond College, Kilkenny during the annual Kilkenny Arts Week Festival.
Me and my work
I live just outside Carrick-on- Suir, County Tipperary. I have been involved in woodturning for almost 35 years.
All my work is made from Native Irish hardwoods
that has come from dangerous trees felled for safety reasons. There is a large
variety available and I currently have ash, elm, monkey puzzle, beech, yew,
apple, hawthorn, oak and cherry. All the
timber is air dried - this takes approx. 1 year per inch thickness.
All items are turn by hand and eye. Each piece is unique, there is no pattern as the shape and form of the final article is dictated by the grain and colour of the starting material. No two pieces are ever the same.
If you would like more information about woodturning, the items I make, or to order a unique, handcrafted piece please contact me at
