Keith Barrow

Keith's videos are a joy to watch.  Whilst being great demonstrations of our craft, Keith brings humour to every video. His welcome is always "Hello viewer!" even though he's got 16,000 of them.

Martin is a very accomplished turner as well as being a successful entrepreneur.  He is the brains behind Hampshire Sheen and Intrinsic Colours. If you are looking for ideas or to develop your own woodturning journey then Martin is your man.

Chris Fisher (the blind woodturner)

Join me, Chris Fisher, the Blind Wood Turner, in my workshop.  I started out in life as a regular guy, working in auto body repair at BMW, until one day, completely out of the blue, a rare virus (Toxoplasmosis) reared its ugly head and caused me to lose my sight in a matter of weeks.  Today, I travel around the country giving public wood turning demonstrations, speaking about my experiences and I sharing my story here, on my YouTube channel, in an effort to inspire, motivate and activate people 

Lyle Jamieson

Lyle has been involved in both woodworking and turning from an early age. His father mentored him in the intricacies of wood, both structurally and artistically, and as a result of this background, he got his start in the woodworking field.

Lyle has developed a style that is both innovative in design and technically challenging. 

Brendan stamp

For 20 years Brendan Stemp combined part time woodturning with a full time teaching career in art and craft. His original woodturning teachers were Richard Raffan and Vic Wood who provided him with not only a solid grounding but also the desire to make it a full time pursuit at some stage.

In 2005, after a move to rural Victoria, Brendan finally took the first tentative steps away from the classroom and started working full time with woodturning. 

Tim Yoder

Tim Yoder is a nationally awarded television producer, photographer and editor. Tim has over 36 years of broadcast television experience and has been turning for over 20 years. He uses that combination of skills to bring a unique perspective and approach to teaching woodturning.


Tim produces some fantastic videos on YouTube. They are always inspirational and often extremely funny. There's good advice for the novice as well as great ideas for the seasoned turner.
