Paddy OC Woodturning
Wood craft, designed and made by Paddy O’Callaghan just outside of Cahir in Co. Tipperary. Since he was a child Paddy has had a fascination with timber and going to the forest. “This stemmed from hanging out with my father & Grandfather at the age of 10/11 every September or October going for firewood. Nowadays, rather than having beautiful trees be cut up for firewood, I prefer to repurpose them as functional artistic pieces in peoples homes.” Paddy has been woodcrafting since 1998 when he began his apprenticeship with a master craftsman in Bansha. Paddy only works with sustainably sourced timber including salvaged wood.
