As we approach our Ten Turners Turning event at the Nuneaton store on Friday 11 and Saturday 12 March 2016, we will be introducing each of the turners week by week. The first turner we would like to introduce is Richard Findley, who also happens to be the winner of the Ready Steady Turn competition at the 2014 Ten Turners Turning event.
Here is a synopsis of Richard and his achievements…
Richard is a production turner based in Leicestershire. His background is in woodworking, coming from a long line of professional woodworkers. It is the variety of work that he enjoys, undertaking commissions for one-off prototypes through to large production runs, turning for furniture makers, restorers, architects, designers and joiners.
Richard’s work is mainly based in the UK, but his growing reputation for making the highest quality turned work has earned him commissions for items that have gone to the US, Canada and Australia. Richard is a well known and popular demonstrator, writing regularly for Woodturning magazine for more than 5 years and having demonstrated all over the UK, Ireland and at AAW Symposiums in the USA.
