Bob Cresswell's Profile

About

I have been working with wood on and off since I was a teenager although I gave up on it for many years when my woodwork teacher at secondary school laughed at my efforts and said I would never be any good at it.

But I came back to the craft some years ago as a means of helping me to recover from a debilitating illness. And I found that with patience and attention to detail that I was actually quite good at it - yah boo sucks Mr Jones.

Most of my work is turned on a lathe although I do also enjoy carving and you may see some love-spoons on here from time to time. I leave things like cabinetry to those people who know what they are doing.
