Les Thorne has been on the Register for Professional Turners since 2001 after spending the majority of his life involved with wood in some capacity.
From his workshop in Old Alresford in Hampshire, Les is primarily a production turner and works on a huge variety of jobs and with many different clients.
Contact Les for your production run requirements, and he’ll be get to you as quickly as possible.
The No Turning Back workshop has been set up with tuition in mind with dust extraction by Camvac and full air filtration.
With five lathes I can cater for most needs. In the winter the workshop is centrally heated, making a very comfortable environment for working in.
If you are interested in either learning to turn or want to commission some work please contact me and I will send you directions to the workshop either by e-mail or snail mail, which ever you prefer.
When I am at the workshop feel free to pop in for a coffee and discuss your requirements . I production turn many items from furniture components, architectural work and one off specials. Work currently has included columns for houses, bespoke candle sticks for churches and staircase spindles. No job too small or too large. I also turn gift shop items such as fruit, candleholders etc.
Now available my debut DVD “No Turning Back“
