Full Circle Wood Turning is a locally owned workshop that turns ideas into memories by repurposing wood from local buildings that no longer exist or are being renovated.

“It started as a hobby creating gifts for family and friends, but it blossomed into a passion to create unique gifts for clients,” says owner Fay Wambolt. “We have repurposed wood from Sydney Steel, North Sydney Forum, Sacred Heart Church, Holy Angels Convent, Smooth Herman’s, and the list goes on and on.”

Wambolt also uses exotic woods from around the world, such as 5000-year-old bog oak from Ireland and Ukraine and pitch pine from the Forth on the Firth in Scotland.

The holiday season is a busy time for Wambolt and Full Circle Wood Turning. Starting this week, Wambolt will be setting up shop at the holiday craft shows around the Third. There will be many of the artisan’s handcrafted wood products on hand to choose from, but the woodworker can also create a unique item from wood that has a special meaning.

“Perhaps you have a piece of wood that evokes memories,” says Wambolt. “Why not let us turn it into a beautiful writing instrument or something else?”

Full Circle Wood Turning will be at the Horizon Achievement Centre on November 9, 10, 11; the Emera Centre on November 17, 18, 19; and at the Joan Harriss Pavilion (Big Fiddle) on November 24, 25, 26.
