Pole lathe greenwood turning is my passion.

My enthusiasm for this ancient craft began many years ago when I first came across ‘bodging’ – the traditional craft of greenwood turning. Bodging was developed in medieval times and later used for creating fine furniture including the classic Windsor chair.

More recently I have broadened my interests and now create my own style of greenwood furniture as well as traditionally crafted wooden household utensils.

Public demonstrations of my craft take place at a number of festival events in NSW, including Ironfest, Winterfest and St Ives Medieval Faire. A short video highlighting some of the techniques I use can be found on my YouTube channel, by searching for ‘The Leura Bodger’.

Some of my highlights

Pole lathe greenwood turning is my passion.
I really enjoy Medieval festivals where we all return to a period of history before there was electricity.  Furniture, artefacts  and tools were all made by hand or with lathes  driven by human power. I enjoy replicating this way of life.
