Sunday 12th February - visit to Philip Steels workshop at Bishops Stortford.

Went to ask Phil to make me some metalwork for my kitchen. He was working on this spectacular piece of spalted Hornbeam.

Up until a week ago I had never seen spalted Hornbeam – bit like waiting for bus, nothing and then two come along at once.

I have been visiting this workshop for some years. The standard of their work has dramatically improved over the years – it is now as good as or better than most professionals. Roy Weare who also featured at the 2015 seminar won a prize at Wizardry in Wood this year. If you ever wanted to develop your work – do it with others.

AWGB Seminar 2015 Top 50

The workshop is shared with Charlie Aldham and Trevor Lucky.

Trevor made these two pieces that were in the top 50 at the 2015 seminar.
