Cooroora Institute

Saturday 4 June 3:30

Free Event

 Vic Tesolin, "the minimalist woodworker", along with Wally Wilson, Lee Valley's senior manager, and John Madden from Carbatec will be demonstrating Veritas tools at the Cooroora Institute. The demonstration will followed by a Q&A and informal drinks and nibbles. 

Attendance is free but an rsvp is requested.

Vic will conduct a hand tool demonstration featuring a range of Veritas products including marking out tools, hand saws, bench planes, chisels, the MKII honing guide, and the new range of Custom Hand planes. He will cover tool design and manufacture, application of different tools, tool selection and correct tool use. This is not a hard sell, although some tools will be available for purchase and there will be Veritas prizes at each demonstration.

He is the Woodworking Technical Advisor at Veritas/Lee Valley Tools, and the author of ‘The Minimalist Woodworker’ dealing specifically with the needs of woodworkers with small spaces to work in.

He is a previous editor of Canadian Woodworking magazine and is a prolific writer with many published woodworking articles, you can follow him on his blog at
