Harry Chapman - Your Local Woodturner


" I’ve been making things from wood since my Dad let me loose on his lathe at the age of 12 "

- Harry Chapman -


A Brief History of hcwoodturn

Since leaving the Royal Navy 20+ years ago I’ve devoted my time to working as a woodturner, creating beautiful, practical hand-made wooden items for the home and for special occasions. I take pride in the fact that the wood I use is sourced locally in the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Most pieces are labelled with the name of the wood that they are made from and a reference to note the year made. in many cases, I will know the actual tree that has been taken down and the full story behind it.

To buy from me either contact me or come and see me at local markets and craft fairs or, why not visit the makers in Abergavenny. – find out how to buy from me.

Handmade in beautiful wood

Some of my most popular wooden homeware items are chopping / bread boards, large fruit / salad bowls and tableware. You can also commission me to make and engrave a special item for your wedding, anniversary, birthday, baby’s christening or simply because, like me, you love wood!

Who buys my wood-turned products 

My customers range from locals to holidaymakers along with local organisations and businesses who use my wares to promote their activities. I supply 'top end' London Restaurants as well as artisan bakers, shops, and catering companies.
