World's Best Sandpaper



Award winning woodturner Brendan Stemp demonstrates the best sandpaper in the world for wood turning and why.

Brendan Stemp was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1960. He trained to be an art and craft teacher at Melbourne State College (now Melbourne University) between 1982 and 1985 where he met Richard Raffan and Vic Wood (both world renowned woodturners). Both spent time with Brendan teaching him woodturning and instilling in him the importance of good design and finish.

In 1986 Brendan started his teaching career at an all boys school in inner Melbourne where he taught woodwork and graphics. In 1990 he was offered a position at Caulfield Grammar School where he spent 12 years before making another move.

In 2002 and after 16 years teaching Art, Graphics and Woodwork Brendan moved to Horsham (a rural town in a grain growing area of western Victoria) where he took up another teaching position. This move provided him with the opportunity to start woodworking full time from his workshop situated on his small property at McKenzie Creek (10 km South of Horsham).

He started his woodworking business by accepting a variety of commissions, which included making dining and coffee tables, cabinets, bookshelves, a lectern for a Catholic church and bridges for a landscaping company. However, one constant has been his woodturning. Since his introduction to woodturning in 1985 he has worked on his lathe mainly producing functional items.
