Andy Walters is a professional woodturner who produces high end woodturning and woodwork including turned metal components for a wide-ranging customer base. Andy operates from modern, fully equipped workshops at Black Isle Woodturning based in the Scottish Highlands. In the dedicated woodturning workshop, precision, hand turned pieces are produced to ensure the highest quality finish for his clients. Meanwhile, the preparation of materials, cabinet work, production of metal components for commissioned pieces and the use of CNC machinery takes place in the separate, purpose designed workshops.

Andy’s work has made its way around the world as part of various different projects, and he strives to produce exquisite quality work for a global clientele.

As a member of the Guild of Master Craftsmen, Andy can guarantee a well-considered initial project briefing with each client. He will work closely with every customer for the duration of a project to ensure that his work meets the very high standards that both he and his clients expect.

The purpose of my work is deeply rooted in the values of sustainability and high quality workmanship that uphold the principles of traditional craft and are engrained in every project and every decision I make.   By blending the traditional with modern methods and technology, I am passionate about pursuing innovative design that pushes against the grain and celebrates the sublime

Andy values sustainability both in business and home life.   All of the timber materials that he uses in the workshops are obtained from sustainable sources wherever possible and from wind fallen timber.   The waste products from the workshops include off cuts, shavings, chippings and sawdust and are dutifully collected up and stored to heat the main workshop over winter.
