I have a wide range of woodwork skills and has turned a vast range of woods for almost 40 years. Originally from Trinidad and Tobago, I lived in Miami and is now settled in the UK. Wherever I have lived I learnt new skills to perfect my craft,
I have a genuine fascination with wood and revels in the beauty that emerges as the wood is turned on the lathe. Each piece of wood is unique and has it’s own distinct grain, giving every item that I make a unique beautiful fingerprint, that is truly one of a kind.
I have previously reclaimed a large piece of oak beam from a 500 year old house. The oak was likely to be 1000’s of years old and had been discarded on a building site. I recovered the wood and made several beautiful and bespoke items of furniture giving new life to the ancient oak.
Since 1975 Keithturnings has hand built, delicately turned and carved robust wooden household furniture. Many items have been completely hand built to a designers exact specification.
