Matt Underwood first started woodturning aged 11 on a lathe his dad bought at an auction. Having had a few lessons with a local woodturner and some help from his grandfather he was soon gathering tools and equipment and in need of a dedicated workshop
to expand his passion, and so ‘Matt’s Shed’ was born.
Having his own workshop has enabled him to develop his woodturning skills at pace, his parents often finding him still out there well into the night. Matt’s Shed has seen multiple layout changes, machines moved outside due to space restrictions,
its 5th lathe and the door was even cut in half to allow access inside when the lathe bed extension is in place!
Matt has attended many excellent free youth training days/weekends held by the Association of Woodturners Great Britain
which have been fundamental in his learning and confidence to turn.
