The Toolmaker’s Workshop

Late last year we visited the Vesper Tools workshop in Victoria, Australia and interviewed Chris Vesper, designer and maker of fine hand tools for woodworkers. The high walls of his workshop are lined with suspended antique drive pulleys and blades, while below is a comprehensive and high performing machine shop. Chris has an incredible setup as you will see, and more than one favourite machine… You can read the full story in the March issue 90 of Wood Review, in print and on iPad. See for more details.

Great video. I finally sat down to watch it and I’m glad I did. Always wanted to see inside Chris’s workshop. I can see how he has more than one favourite machine. It’s like trying to pick a favourite child. Love the vintage wheels. Quite a collection there. Thanks
