    Thank you

    Hi everyone my name is John Braden
    I have been woodturning for about 8 months now, I had to finish work due to a serious illness which left me in a wheelchair. I needed something to occupy my time as I was finding life very difficult. I was asked if I would like a woodturning lathe foc which I decided to accept, and I found that I really began to enjoy using my hands again. So I made some pens last Christmas and sold them, then I made some more as people began to ask me for them and eventually ended up making about 30 which were all sold. Since then I have made and sold a few bowls and pots.
