Peter Mc Dowell

Pete Mc Dowell retired in 2004,sold off all but his basic tools and downsized to an apartment. Six years later travelling and free time lost its shine. After many requests from a friend Pete visited the Mogo Workshop and so began a new adventure.
Art Keeler showed him how to make boxes with patience, persistence and hand tools!
Don Lee instructed him in his initial development as a turner and Len Newman started looking over his shoulder providing tips and methodologies as well as giving him challenges to improve his skills.
Since then he has become known for his quality workmanship and creative designs.
Lately Pete has added carving to his skill set and incorporates carved elements in his trurning.
