VWA Meets / 2017

Meet#44 Workshop visit to Vesper Tools


9A Leah Grove
Carrum Downs, VIC 3201

Chris Vesper is known to woodworkers across Australia and around the world for his exquisite squares, sliding bevels and marking knives. He aims to ‘design, manufacture and sell the best woodworking hand tools available anywhere’. One reviewer for Popular Woodworking Magazine, Chris Schwarz, noted that ‘Vesper makes the best sliding bevel I’ve ever used’, which suggests that Chris is s achieving his very high aspirations.

Chris has just moved into a new purpose built workshop. He will take us on a tour of the production process and talk about his approach to toolmaking and the art and science of striving for perfection.
