Vesper Tools will be exhibiting and selling tools at these events. This page updated regularly. Do check back.
The 2018 schedule has been great. Sturt School - Maleny - Melbourne Guild Hand Tool Event - Lie-Nielsen Open House in Maine USA - Perth Wood Show, Illawarra Wood Fest, and finishing the year with the inaugural WoodDust event in Bungendore.
Vesper Tools is re-evaluating our show schedule for 2019. In 20 years of doing the wood show circuit Chris Vesper has completed approx 6-10 events per year and completing about 143 shows exhibited in that time, including many international events. Vesper Tools is currently faced with 9+ month backlog, there is no point going out to drum up more orders and sell tools one doesn't have in stock. Vesper Tools will exhibit at 2-3 events only in 2019. If some competent staff come on board the journey of quality here and we manage to catch up on backlog then it will be back to normal in 2020 with around 8 shows and hand tool related events per year.
All are welcome and admission to the open house event is free. Many vendors and craftsmen and women, including Vesper Tools will be set up with tools and timber and works for sale with plenty of knowledge to share.
Come along for shop tours of Lie-Nielsen's manufacturing operations, and the bonus of Maine in the summer time! Lobster Bake and dinner will have a cost.
Fri & Sat, 12 & 13th of July, 2019.
Lie Nielsen Toolworks, Route 1, Warren, Maine. USA.
Perhaps check here later to see if there is any suitably vague info up on other events we will exhibit at.
Hope to see you all some time!
