About Creative Turning

Carel van der Merwe is a woodturner that creates unique pieces by exploring and enhancing the natural beauty of wood by means of texturing, burning and colouring. He is always looking for design opportunities in natural flaws in wood as created by nature and is well known for his Hollow forms, Natural edge bowls and coloured turnings.

Carel has trained with a number of leading international woodturners to hone his turning technique and skills. Together with his love of tools and machines (he is a trained engineer) he is also selling woodturning tools based on his experience. With the training courses offered, he is able to advise woodturners on the correct techniques and tools required.
