  • Latest events

    • Last March 2022 we had this beautifull woodworking event in Westonbirt in the UK. Organised by Paul Hayden, who runs Westonbirt Woodworks, and the chaps form Classic Hand Tools (Mike, Alex and Fraser). Probably the most beautiful arboretum in the UK. And a dream of a workshop with fabulous woodworkers like Ben Groenevelt and Paul himself.
    • In October 2022 we had the "Open dag Hout". The largest and most visited woodworking event in The Netherlands organised yearly by woodworking.nl.
    • Harrogate last November 2022. Above expectations! We were invited by Classic Hand Tools to share the booth with Lie-Nielsen. 3 days with 15.000 fanatic woodworkers. And we met with the stunning work of Shane Skelton and his wife Jacqueline. I couldn't resist buying two of their saws.
