Phil Boulter: Master Labeller and Bottle Filler

Phil joined Hampshire Sheen in April 2019 after retiring from his proper job as a Project Manager. Here, Phil is Master Labeller and Bottle Filler and keeps a close eye on stuff Martin forgets! His other roles include Sounding-Board, Entertainment Officer and the Monday Belgian Bun-Boy.
A keen woodturner himself, Phil is the Vice Chairman of the Kennet Valley Woodturning Club in Berkshire.


Natalja Saban-Smith: Admin-In-Chief

Natalja became Hampshire Sheen’s Admin-in-Chief and Stock Monitor in January 2020 after leaving her previous work for something a lot closer to home – literally!
Being Martin’s better half, she is generally the first to hear (and question!) what is planned next and other less sensible ideas.


Martin Saban-Smith

Martin is the developer of the products, the Director of the company and is a registered professional turner.
He is fanatical about his finishing products and techniques. He created the Hampshire Sheen range of waxes to satisfy his need for a wax finish that gave him the finish he wanted and lasted as longer than the rest available.
Months of trial and error lead to the creation of Hampshire Sheen Original which received tremendous reviews and praise from the very first turners to try it in the UK. That was in 2015.
