Vesper Tools will be exhibiting and selling tools at these events. This page updated regularly. Do check back.
Vesper Tools is attending minimal events in 2019. After 20+ years of doing the wood show circuit Chris Vesper has completed approx 6-10 events per year and exhibiting at about 145 shows in that time, including many international events. Vesper Tools is currently faced with 6+ month backlog, there is no point going out to sell tools one doesn't have in stock. Hopefully after catching up on backlog the year 2020 will be back to normal with around 6+ shows and hand tool events for the year: Such as Sturt Tools weekend, Maleny Wood Expo, Melbourne Hand Tool Event, Perth Wood Show, Handworks in Amana Iowa in Sept 2020.

Vesper Tools encourages you to visit any and all of the ongoing woodworking events around Australia or indeed the world regardless of whether or not we are attending.
Things like the Hand Tool Events in your local area in Australia: Sturt, Perth & Melbourne, and indeed visit the HTE's in the USA if you happen to be there! Maleny Wood Expo in QLD just north of Brisbane is just brilliant. Perth Wood Show also staple diet for the passionate woodworker without exception, such a great event they run over west. Plus now the Timber Tools and Artisans shows are born again from the old Timber and Working with Wood shows with some new direction and leadership, and I like it.
