David Langan is a woodturner from Wrington in North Somerset.

When retired from a career in IT he initially learnt spoon carving from green wood and quickly developed an appreciation of the visual and tactile beauty of wood.

To further explore this new interest he has spent time acquiring a range of woodturning skills from a number of professional woodturners including George Foweraker, a renowned wood turner and chairman of the Burnham-on-sea Woodturning Club.

David has a particular interest in exploring the incorporation of marquetry into his wood turning and to this end currently offers custom made items such as boxes and wine bottle coasters with personalised marquetry inserts - there are some examples of these in the gallery. Other recently crafted items are jewellery boxes, ring stands and earring carousels, together with many other useable and useful bowls and platters.

David is a member of The Marquetry Society, the Association of Woodturners of Great Britain and also an active member of the Burnham-on-Sea Woodturners Club.
