    Well Olivers Woodturning suffers for space and it’s not a real location for woodturners when they have traveled a distance, we have the tools but it’s very compacted.

    Well not for too much longer, plans have been drawn up and work is well under way for the new studio and shop. If all goes well Olivers Woodturning will be moved in to the new building based at my home where I can make it the place that I would like it to be.

    Hopefully we will be up and running in the new location by the end of August. I’ll keep you posted.

    Looks interesting. I would love to have the space to do something like that. As long as there is no gas involved, I could do all the work myself.

    Keep us posted.
