‘I’ve been making things from

wood since my dad let me loose

on his lathe at the age of 12’

Harry Chapman WoodturnerSince leaving the Royal Navy 15 years ago I’ve devoted my time to working as a woodturner, creating beautiful, practical hand-made wooden items for the home and for special occasions. I take pride in the the fact that the wood I use is sourced locally in the Brecon Beacons National Park.

I sell my products through my Ty Cam Gallery in Talybont-on-Usk (open on the second and third Sundays of the month and Bank Holidays) and at local markets and county shows – find out how to buy from me.

handmade in beautiful wood


Some of my most popular wooden homeware items are chopping / bread boards, large fruit / salad bowls and tableware. You can also commission me to make and engrave a special item for your wedding, anniversary, birthday, baby’s christening or simply because, like me, you love wood!

who buys my wood-turned products

My customers range from locals to holidaymakers along with local organisations and businesses who use my wares to promote their activities. I've supplied the Hay Festival of Literature which commissioned me to make boards and bowls engraved with the Festival logo as well as artisan bakers, shops, a local soap-making company and catering companies with products ranging from wooden pestle and mortars to soap dishes.
