Theo Haralampou gives another great insight into a woodturners journey, this quote from his website gives you a small taste of the Theo and his work:
"I initially took up wood turning 23 years ago so I could turn my own drumsticks and make gifts for my family and friends.
These days demonstrating and teaching woodturning is my greatest passion and full-time endeavour. Apart from demonstrating throughout Australia and New Zealand at symposiums, club events and wood shows. I have also demonstrated in the USA AAW Symposium, on the Woodturning Cruise through the fjords of Norway and for World Wood Day celebrations and tours in China, Cambodia and Laos.
Theo enjoys demonstrating the safest and easiest way to sharpen tools, develop good tool control, and take advantage of the characteristics of the wood turn and embellish interesting, diverse and artful projects. Theo feels extremely privileged to be able to share his knowledge and experience with others.
Theo’s philosophy is that life is too short, so we should enjoy the journey, share with others and leave something to show we were here."
