John, who is married with three children and four grandchildren, has been crafting at his home in Bridgwater for nine years. Before he retired he would often look for good, well-made, value for money wooden toys for his grandchildren and was surprised by how little were out there, so he decided to make his own.
He learnt Scroll Sawing and Pyrography and has been crafting ever since. He makes puzzle toys, intarsia pictures, signs and a variety of wooden toys and all of his work is crafted by hand. No computer or lasers are involved.
John enjoys walks on the Quantocks, swimming and going to the gym.
