Artist Rick Taylor:
Rick has been woodturning for over 30 years and invites you to share his love of woodturning. You will see the many colours and grains of the Ancient Kauri wood featured in the turned pieces shown in our gallery. Rick has just finished two wonderful pieces -The SNAPPER FISH and The DOLPHIN - both from Ancient Kauri / See gallery 5 page
All pieces in the Gallery, Corporate Gift, Kauri Paper and Tool sections are available to purchase. We can now offer some of our wonderful ancient kauri to other woodturners and woodworkers. New - See the Kauri blanks page.
We can ship/post your purchases home. Overseas visitors can get the GST (tax) of 12.5% off the purchase price. This helps towards the postage costs.
For fellow woodturners we offer information on woodturning tools available at our studio (we can post worldwide). We also offer Woodturning Tuition for beginners to advanced levels. This is individual tuition for 1 day or longer. Use Rick's tools, learn his "new wave" methods and have some fun as well. Learn how to enjoy your woodturning.
Check the Today's News page for demonstration/workshops happening soon and book your place for a workshop with Rick.
Rick is also available for club seminars, workshops and shows. Group visits are welcome but please tell us your group is coming as Rick may be down in the swamp getting more kauri, or fishing or out and about and you don't want to miss seeing him in action on the woodlathe!
We hope you enjoy our site - remembering that Rick is the
woodturner and Sue looks after the Gallery and we are just learning
about the art of making our website. Your comments are most welcome.
