‘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 20+ 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.

Most pieces are labelled with the wood that they are made of and a reference to note the year made, in many cases I will know the actual tree that has been taken down and the full story behind it.

I sell my products through my Ty Cam Gallery in Talybont-on-Usk (usually open on the second and third Sundays of the month from April through to October 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!
