Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has partnered with internationally renowned, Robert Sorby Tools of England, to present unique demonstrations on woodturning at many of its retail locations.

“Whether you’re new to woodturning, would like to learn new techniques, or master solutions to your turning challenges, this Winter Tour headlined by Robert Sorby’s U.S. Sales Manager, Jeff Farris, will be a real treat,” says Rockler Retail Merchandising Director, Glenn Snyder. “You can see demonstrations of the latest tools and innovative turning solutions, and stick around for expert advice and ‘how-to’ from a leading woodturning authority.” Rockler is underwriting this event so there will be no charge to attend.

Woodturning differs from most other forms of woodworking in that the wood is moving while a stationary tool is used to cut and shape it - many intricate shapes and designs can be made - and this artful form of woodworking. The woodturning demonstration held at Rockler will be a rare opportunity for both the general public as well as seasoned woodworkers and turners to directly interact with a true turning expert. Interested people of all skill levels are encouraged to drop by at any time during the scheduled demonstration.
