Jim Reid a professional woodturner has been in operation since 1990. Jim started out woodturning under the guidance of a local tradesman. When he was proficient enough he started turning from home before opening up his own workshop in Canberra. After 4 years he started to specialise more on the creative side as retailing was becoming too demanding and not allowing enough time for creative woodturning. All products are crafted from Australian Burl or kilndried Australian timbers. Burls are cut under licence from within western New South Wales including areas such as Broken Hill Pooncarie Fords Bridge Bourke and other inland areas.
