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.

woodturned honey dippersOne of Dave's favourite item to produce for craft fairs around Dorset and a favourite tool of Winne-the-Pooh is a honey dipper. Honey dippers a turned kitchen tool used to collect the honey from a jar or a container and then drizzle the honey onto bread, scones or biscuits. Traditionally quite large and made of hard wood, an ideal honey dipper just fits diagnonally into your honey pot, you then return the honey dipper back to the honey pot after use, you do not wash it.

Honey has strong antisceptic qualities which is why it is safe to keep the dippers in the honey, just make sure that it only touches honey and air. Pull them out of the honey, hold it at a slightly tilted angle and twirl it to catch the honey which is dripping off it. Hold it over your cup, bowl and drip it into your cup or bowl, do not wash your dipper unless absolutley necessary, when washed coat them with soft bees was or mineral oil and return to your honey pot.
