Bespoke Pen Wenge Wood Hand-turned.
No tree is like another, no two branches are the same, and their grain pattern is a distinctive as finger print. Their shape tells the story of the wind and the weather…
Roy Humphreys is the 4th generation of the Humphreys family working with wood.
‘I am a self taught turner – it started out as as a hobby and has now developed into a business. I have been wood-turning for over nearly 20 years now. My studio is based in the converted granary beside my home outside Mohill. I use all native timber sourced mainly from the family farm. The collection of my wood-turning products I turn include bowls, boxes candle holders, lamps, pens, clocks, plant stands and other commissioned sculpted pieces.’

“Woodturning is a journey of discovery” says Roy, “acquiring the wood and imagining all its possibilities, the turning process itself, removing the turned piece from the lathe and when the wood has been left to dry for a number of months, rediscovering it again – applying oil to the raw surface and seeing the richness and depth of colour and grain spring magically to life”.
