About Me - Short Version 

I am a Woodturner and Woodturning Teacher from Tralee Co Kerry Ireland. I have been Turning since the mid 90s but I did take a long break during the 00s. I came back to Woodturning during 2014 and was pushed into starting this business in 2015.  Since it was my second business I was very reluctant to be self-employed again but I still find myself here.

 

Affiliations

I am a member of the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland and a member of the Original Kerry Craft group. I work mainly with Ash and Beech which is wood that I have cut from the trees directly and then dried for use later.

 

Current News

Up to 2020 business was getter better and easier but Covid-19 has really hit my business hard. In 2022 it looks like the restrictions may be going and hopefully the world will start recovering soon. I certainly hope the Tourism gets back to some sort of normality from now on as it is something I rely on during the Summer months. This is a fairly short version but you can read more in my About Me page if I haven't bored you too much lol.

Why Sell Retail Products?

You may have found my website accidentally on Google and are wondering why a Woodturner would sell a wide variety of retail products, some of which have a connection with Woodturning and many that do not. It's very simple really, I sell Tools and Woodworking products because I got tired of sending my students to other shops to buy products that I was recommending.  After a while I realized that I was making a mistake by sending people away when I could become a product reseller and grab the whole market. The other products I sell like Satin Ribbon, Organza Gift Bags and Office/Craft supplies are all items that I use in my business and I found that other Crafters struggle to find good quality products to use in their businesses too. This way I can sell direct to people like myself and ordinary non business folk making a few Euro in the process. Which brings me to my final explanation; As a Woodturner I have to accept the fact that I won't be a millionaire and I will have to struggle to make ends meet as I go. Adding retail products will make things harder for me initially as I have to buy the goods but over time should get easier. You can help me out by buying something small from one of my Stores here.

The Website Rebuild

I spent a considerable amount of time working on my website during February and March 2022, making the site easier to read, nicer to look at and removing old content etc. I haven't previously had time to do this so during the quiet months was the perfect opportunity. Wix websites have a lot of JavaScript running in the background which I cannot access to modify so the site will always have issues. I also have no access to the CSS files so can't make sitewide changes. Instead, lots of things have to be done page by page which is time consuming considering I have 94 main site pages and also about 500 product pages which require their own TLC.  Wix Editor had a few connectivity problems during the rebuild and the end result of that may be some errors and omissions around the site.  Please excuse any that you see and know the reason a sentence seems to make no sense or just stops in the middle. The issues were eventually fixed by Wix but I had to move on as I lost a lot of time due to the many saving errors.
