The ToolPost (http://www.toolpost.co.uk/index.html
) is more than just an online provider of woodturning tools
and accessories. The ToolPost store in Didcot, Oxfordshire has long been a favourite retailer among turners and carvers, while for many years the onsite workshop has hosted Spring and Autumn Open Houses, featuring a range of live demonstrators. Now, in the latest of events which are not-to-be-missed, there will be opportunities for turners to meet the creative minds behind some of the best regarded tools, in the 'Meet the Maker' series.
There are some makes of woodturning and woodcarving tools
and equipment which are roundly respected and widely used. Having the opportunity to meet the inventors or originators of those tools and see them demonstrate the range not only allows turners to see a master at work with the tools of his (and everyone's!) trade, but also to ask any questions they may have about optimum usage, pick their brains for insider tips and potentially resolve any issues they have experienced with the tools.
This is the concept behind the inaugural 'Meet the Maker' event at The ToolPost, which will feature Mike Hunter of Hunter Carbide Tools, the carbide-tipped tool range which has been setting the woodturning world alight for some time. On the 28th and 29th
September, in a drop-in event which is entirely free of charge, Mike Hunter will be demonstrating some of the key tools within his range and opening the floor to any questions or queries. This will be a rare chance to 'Meet the Maker' of one of the hottest ranges of woodturning tools in the world today and promises to be a highly popular event.
