Phil Dowthwaite Woodturner   

Welcome to my web site please do feel free to look around


Having left the RAF in 1996 after a quick 25 years service I was given my first lathe and started turning.  It was soon clear that I was destined to be covered in sawdust for the rest of my life.  It began as a hobby but I turned professional in 2001.

I dry my own timber, sometimes taking the tree down myself which gives me the opportunity to select more unusual cuts with which to work. 

 I like to do all types of turning from natural edge bowls, vases and lamps to more quirky items such as penguins and mice.  
I sell most of my work through craft fairs around Norfolk and Suffolk, also having some pieces in a local gallery.  I am now venturing onto the internet so please feel free to browse my Virtual Gallery and look at some of my work.

 The majority of the items I produce are one off and one would need to check they are still available for purchase but any items I have quoted prices for include postage and packaging within the UK.  Any items shipped abroad will be quoted for on application.   I also undertake commissions and can be contacted through my contact page or by telephone.
