I'm Dave Worth and I'm a woodturner in Blandford Forum, Dorset. Welcome to my woodturning website portfolio where I hope that you will find images to stimulate your own woodturning with some information areas for people who are researching making their first foray into woodturning. I love turning local sustainable Dorset wood where possible. I am a carpenter and Joiner by trade and have been learning how to turn wood since I was 14 years old.

I now travel around the south of England demonstrating my woodturning skills and giving woodturning lessons. If you want to learn how to woodturn then please check out my contact details and get in touch. Lessons are a reasonable price and give the prospective turner a one to one lesson where they will produce some wood chippings and create their own bespoke piece.

charles lakinCharles LakinIt was back on 10th June 2012 where Dave was woodturning at the Laverstoke Park Farm Field to Fork Festival which combined a country show with a food festival. It is a great day out for all the family with lots to do for all ages. Dave came to the assistance of Yorkshire chef Charles Lakin (who at the time was the head chef at the Marquis at Alkham in Kent. Charlie is now at the forefront of the Durban dining scene at 9th Avenue Bistro )

Well anyway Charlie was entering the British BBQ championships and was looking for inspiration for a special way to display the fantastic BBQ food that he had prepared for entry into the festival. As he was browsing around Dave The Lathe's display and wooden items that were for sale Charlie spotted some stocky wooden block chopping boards that Dave had prepared from his Dorset timber.

On spying the beautiful wooden block boards Charlie had found just what he was looking for, it was last minute preporation but seemed to fit the bill. Daves wooden blocks were accompanied by 2 of the woodturners favourite, wooden mushrooms. Charlie later took to Twitter describing the wooden blocks as beautiful which as you can imagine made Dave's day.

Laverstoke Park Farm was a great day out and a credit to Jody Scheckter, Dave looks forward to be able to return as he had a great day here in 2012
