The creation of Mayflower Woodcrafts
After many years of being behind a desk I realised how much I missed my old trade of toolmaking and the buzz of making things from scratch. I had recently lost my wife and retirement was just a few years away. My son persuaded me to have a go and so I purchased some basic equipment and started in a small way by making walking sticks in my spare time. It was so rewarding to pick up many of my old skills and to practice and work at new projects and techniques. I slowly began to expand into wood turning, Pyrography, metal inlays into wood and many other areas of wood and plastics. I especially enjoy commission work which adds variety to my creativity. One such was a boxed set of Wican wands, one for each of the seasons. It was a delight to work with the client on the designs and which woods to use. I have sold a number of items in the last few years mostly to the USA. I have created this website to showcase the "very best" of my work which will be unique and never copied. I hope you enjoy looking at my woodcrafts as much as I have loved making them. I am always up for a challenge so please ask me if you want something special.
