Big woodworking weekend at our Cardiff store
The biggest free woodworking event in South Wales will provide a ‘cave of wonders’ for all woodworkers – whether trade, DIYers, hobbyists or craft specialists.
Top professionals and staff experts will demonstrate the latest power tools, machines and hand tools from a range of over 10,000 products at Axminster Tools & Machinery’s Cardiff store in Valegate Retail Park.
Store Manager Lee Parfitt says that this free event on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th March will be ‘like nothing seen before’ in South Wales.
Almost all visitors to the store will have a ‘Wow!’ experience and tell us they are overwhelmed by the sheer choice of tools and machinery we have all under one roof. Our Big Woodworking Weekend will highlight our fantastic array of products and our promise never to be beaten on price for professional power tools
Topping the bill is professional woodturner Nick Agar, who has become one of the most sought after demonstrators on the international woodturning stage. Nick specialises in surface enhancement and his award winning work incorporates carving, airbrushing, ceramic and metal effects. Nick has also been featured on BBC and ITV lifestyle television programmes and his clients include HRH Prince of Wales and the royal jewellers, Aspreys.
Additionally, the British Association of Woodcarvers (Welsh team) return to the store to showcase their exceptional talents and to offer guidance and advice to those interested in starting this absorbing, creative hobby.
Furthermore, visitors will be able to get hands-on with leading power tool brands including Bosch, DeWalt, Festool, Fein and Mirka as professional demonstrators put these machines through their paces. We also have a number of trade specialists as well as the Cardiff store sales team who will be on hand to give advice and guidance on finishing products, abrasives, sharpening techniques, dust extraction systems and almost any other topic of woodworking interest.
This is a rare opportunity to see the very best of the tools, machines, accessories and consumables available to today’s woodworker,” says Lee. “We’ll have some great deals over the weekend so we’d urge visitors to get in early. There’s plenty of parking, free tea and coffee and we’ll have a number of goody bags to give away as well.
