Over the years as a company we have worked with and brought from many different suppliers, as well as groups and individuals that we worked or shown with.
We hope that you will find the links helpful in understanding our reasons for working or trading with these companies.
The Group was set up in 2003 with the aim of supporting the work of coppice, underwood and associated craftsmen in Hampshire, as well as raising awareness of the benefits and opportunities they provide for woodlands and their wildlife, the landscape, rural employment and sustainable development.
Association of Polelathe Turners & Greenwood Workers
The purpose of this, the official Association of Polelathe Turners & Greenwood Workers web site, is to promote green woodworking and all its associated crafts so that once again the woodlands of the world are nurtured and valued as a source of employment and enjoyment.

A member of both Hampshire and Sussex and Surrey coppice groups I first Turned along side mark at the 2008 New forest show.
on his Bog site Mark describes himself thus :"Pole-lathe turner, greenwood worker and woodsman living and working in and around Lynchmere, on the border of West Sussex and Hampshire between Haslemere and Liphook"
