Mike Waldt Wood Turner

“The craft of woodturning has developed into my passion, and the natural beauty that is revealed as you work on a piece never ceases to amaze me…”

Mike lives with his wife in a small village in Bedfordshire and started woodturning in 2011, after watching a YouTube video on turning a bowl. He very soon became hooked and turned his double garage into a workshop.
He has developed a successful YouTube channel and regularly uploads videos and also does live demonstrations. His woodturning is juggled between a full-time job as a bus driver in his local town of Bedford and maintaining the cottage and garden."
