My name is Chris West. I am fortunate to live very close to the New Forest in Hampshire in the south of England. 

I have been woodturning for over 40 years now and for the last 18 years I have specialized in turning salt & pepper shakers and mills. 




I share my designs through articles published in the UK's Woodturning  magazine. 

I am occasionally to be found giving evening demonstrations to Clubs in the UK.

My first book Turning Salt & Pepper Shakers and Mills  was published in 2011 in both the UK and USA.

My second book entitled;
Adding Spice to your Woodturning.
20 Salt, Pepper & Spice Shaker Projects for Woodturner

is due out in February 2017.  See the Home page for more detail.
