See a Master at Work for Free:
Rolly Munro Turning Demos
at The ToolPost

The name Rolly Munro has become synonymous in the turning community with works of woodturning art and the creation of some superlative hollow forms. While Rolly has become renowned around the woodturning world, the fact that he is based in New Zealand means that British turners rarely get the chance to see the master at work. Leading supplier of turning and carving tools, The ToolPost ( has long been a proponent of Rolly's and is once again helping to share his talent by hosting free turning demonstrations from the man himself on Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd September 2011 in Didcot, Oxfordshire.

Rolly Munro is of course the man behind the name of the Munro Hollowing System, arguably the finest hollowing tools on the market. Watching a demonstration from Rolly is not only the opportunity to marvel at one of the greatest turning talents in the world today, but also to learn tips on effective hollowing from the inventor of the market-leading hollowing tools, as he uses them himself.

Woodcarving and woodturning tools supplier The ToolPost has opened its doors to share Rolly's talents before, and now it is once again giving turning enthusiasts and Rolly fans the opportunity to learn from the master. Rolly will be demonstrating his impressive skills to crowds at The ToolPost store in Didcot, Oxfordshire on Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd September at 10:00am and once again at 2:00pm daily and admission is absolutely free (although booking is recommended as tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis).

Although normally closed on Saturday afternoons, The ToolPost store will remain open on the afternoon of 3rd September to allow attendees to stock up on all the essential woodturning tools which will help them attempt to replicate a little of the Rolly magic for themselves, including of course the superb Munro hollowing tools.
