Mayama was founded back in 1982 in Perth, Australia with the principle aim of serving the souvenir trade. Such was the success of the initial venture the company started supplying component parts. By the early 1990’s this area of the business had become the main focus for Mayama. In early 2000, Mayama had begun supplying to other retail and wholesale outlets and this is where the company continues to be successful today.
At Mayama, we understand wood turning and find it an extremely rewarding pastime that allows you to create something that is truly outstanding. We therefore like to pass on our knowledge to people who are also interested in the trade. This may be a complete novice or someone with several years experience but is looking to hone their skills.
There are a number of excellent woodturning instructors, plus woodturning groups operating around Australia including some men’s sheds where you can meet like-minded people in a friendly, social environment. All of these groups are cheap to join and you will have lots of fun and meet new friends who share similar interest. All those who attend are encouraged to express their thoughts and ideas in order to develop the areas that interest them the most.
We supply you with instructions and advice on how to make different products in your own leisure time, and adding more as often as possible. This gives you the opportunity to develop your skills and ideas giving you a greater knowledge of wood turning. After just a few lessons and some time practicing on your own, you will be in position to create, make and sell gifts and souvenirs that will earn you anything from a few extra dollars to a very healthy income.
We specialise in providing novice and expert wood turning professionals the project parts they need to produce the works of art that they are known for. Mayama is Australia’s premier wood turning supplies stockist, stocking products from both home and abroad.
