Woodworking Shows

Classic Hand Tools have a reputation for supporting woodworking events and woodfairs throughout the UK. We believe that tools are to be seen and preferably demonstrated before you make your purchase and we have dispensed advice to tens of thousands of woodworkers over the last 10 or so years.

We often employ the best demonstrators and have had the privilege of working with the likes of Thomas Lie-Nielsen, Garrett Hack, David Charlesworth, John Lloyd, Mark Hancock, Michael Hosaluk, Phil Edwards, Steve Woodley, Watanabe, Brian Boggs, Bill Carter, Dave Johnson, Bob Neill, Chris Pye, Deneb Pulchalski, Curtis Turner, Kieran Binnie, David Barron, Nick Agar, Paul Hayden, James Mursell, Richard Arnold and many others.

We do the shows to engage with our customers and to win new business. We do not rely solely on our website to convince you of our worth and we also offer our price match promise so you can rest assured we will give you the best price possible.

We will add to this list of shows during the year as we commit to them...
