I have been working with wood since I was a young boy and with a little guidance from my Grandad I have built all sorts of things from summer houses to tables and stools.
I am mostly self taught and I am always striving to improve my skills and to learn something new. Around 5 years ago I took up wood turning and haven't looked back since.
I love being able to craft an object from something raw like a freshly cut log and see it emerge as a finished, functional and beautiful item.
Everything you find here from The Bear Wood, is hand crafted by myself. Spoons are released from logs with the help of an axe and knives. Bowls are gouged out of spinning wood on a lathe. Everything I make is unique, individual and lovingly finished by hand.
Wood is the most beautiful material we have so I always focus on trying to display that beauty in a modern and functional way.
