Ron Allen – Woodturner
Ron retired early from his teaching career to pursue his interest in Woodturning. He has always had an interest in woodturning and in trees and woody shrubs. Of all of the woodworking activities, turning is the one which can give a quick result.
Although the form and design of finished pieces is paramount, the joy of discovering the hidden beauty of an unknown piece of wood always provides pleasure. Most of the wood Ron works with is collected from salvaged trees, branches etc. and is nearly always non-commercial timber.
Ron has had an association with the Waite Arboretum for many years, and has had the opportunity to work with many unusual and beautiful woods. Ron is one of the Waite Arboretum Garden Guides and a committee member of the Friends of the Waite Arboretum.
Once again Ron’s artistry will be on display in Urrbrae House on Friday 8th September. Open from 8:15AM to 2:00PM, Drawing Room, Urrbrae House.
Some of his wares are for sale, with a proceeds commission going to support the volunteer Friends of the Waite Arboretum.
