Award-winning woodturner, Rod Page, first became interested in woodturning at Yandles Show in 1997, where Matthew Calder was demonstrating. Page’s profession as a teacher gave him access to a Graduate Lathe which he used to turn a birch log into a hollow form. By reading books and watching demonstrations by professional woodturners such as Bert Marsh, Phil Irons and Ray Key, Page was able to develop his techniques gaining a well-deserved reputation for a high level of craftsmanship within the woodworking community. Page’s turnings demonstrate his ability to create a range of styles with a high level of precision.

Since being accepted onto the Register of Professional Turners in 2010, Page has gone on to win many prestigious awards and further examples of his work can also be seen at the Contemporary Applied Arts in London. All the timber used is obtained locally. Some comes from a local tree surgeon and some is offered to Page when trees either fall down or have to be taken down. Some comes from a local beach where there is a landslip and the trees fall into the sea. Much of Page’s work has holes in it. These are either naturally occurring or made with a router or saw. Some pieces are cut from both sides to create a broken through lattice.
