January, it's fair to say, can often be a gloomy month - especially coming so soon after the sparkling atmosphere of the festive season.
However, even if your Christmas was slightly spoiled by unwanted presents, you can inject a surprising level of excitement into your January by selling them to fund some New Year shopping at The ToolPost.
With your passion for woodturning, you
could find that even many people who know you well often struggle to buy just the right present for you. Maybe they lack your in-depth knowledge of woodturning and as a result, tend to buy you equipment or supplies that
you neither want nor need.
Well, you could say that it's the thought that counts! Furthermore, you shouldn't struggle to sell unwanted presents before putting the financial returns towards something a lot more
suitable for your needs from The ToolPost. You'll have to wait until Monday 4th January before buying, as that's when our shop and showroom reopen after the festive break. However, that can leave you with plenty of time
to peruse our stock before making a wise buying decision.
As for what you should buy... what should we recommend first? With woodturning tools, accessories, lathes, finishes and adhesives among the many products that
fill our stock shelves, you could find that simply making the decision of what to purchase takes you well into January anyway.
However, as Christmas tends to be the time of year that we reserve for really splashing
out, we wouldn't be surprised if you opt for a high-end gift. We offer, for example, tools designed under the guidance of globally renowned turners, including Glenn Lucas, Ray Key and Dale Nish. Meanwhile, the
sharpening systems we sell include the well-rated Sorby Pro0Edge belt sharpening system and, for use with high speed grinders, the Oneway Wolverine Sharpening Jig.
Still, you might find buying a book or video in order
to further your woodturning knowledge more financially palatable. By taking this route, you could glean insights from such woodturning maestros as Jimmy Clewes, Glenn Lucas and Mike Mahoney. In any case, here's to
clinching the great gift that you wish you had unwrapped on 25th December - here at The ToolPost, it's our pleasure to right those ever-frustrating festive wrongs! Have a Happy Turning New Year!
