Dave Thomas is a woodturner based in Port Talbot which is just outside Swansea, West Glamorgan, South Wales.
He can provide turned parts for restoration work, patterns for mould making and anything from a single newel post or cap to a full set of balusters / spindles for your staircase.
He can cut barley twists, rope twists, reeding, fluting and can turn large work. Porch posts or columns can also be turned up to 8 feet in one piece and longer if the design allows for jointing.

His specialty is in matching existing stairparts, this is ideal if you have to replace a few broken balusters or need to match the existing stairparts or caps in a new section of staircase.
If you have a drawing or idea that you want turned in a specific timber just give him a call.

Fluted Oak newels with single twist balusters.

He is also an avid Wing chun (Ving Tsun)
Kung fu practitioner and makes Wooden dummies (Mook yan jong) Long poles (luk dim boon gwan) and wooden butterfly knives (Baat jam do)
Wing chun training equipment.
Delivery is available throughout the U.K

Various woodturned items are available, newel caps, newel posts, balusters / spindles, bowls, pepper mills, rolling pins and many more quality turned items.

If you would like something for your home then why not take a look at the decorative pages.

If you can't find what you want, give him a call to discuss your requirements. If you are passing or live locally feel free to call in.
