Dale Leach: Woodwork Artist

I was born in Sussex England in 1944. I severed an apprenticeship as a joiner and cabinet maker.

I emigrated to Australia with my wife and our eldest daughter in 1965.

After working as a carpenter and later running  a building business for a number of years retired in 2009.

Upon retirement i decided to take up wood turning, I use mainly local native timbers from dead or fallen trees.

Seeing the colour and grain emerge whilst turning is most satisfying.

A passion for wood and a desire for perfection are two of the forces that drive me.
