Michael Williams

I am a wood turner and fine woodworker. I make beautiful, functional items for textile crafts.

I design and make practical textile tools, taking utmost care to achieve accuracy and a beautiful finish. I enjoy creating new improved versions of traditional tools and encourage my customers to respond with suggestions and feedback. I use hardwoods, especially maple and beech, plus some darker woods for contrast. I am happy to use other woods by request.

My background as a mathematician helps to ensure that the tools work as they should: drop spindles, for example, have excellent balance and duration of spin.

I meet wonderful people from around the world and it is very rewarding to see the finished tools in use and appreciated.
