Lamello P-System With Marco Ress

Marco Ress, international demonstrator and area sales manager with Lamello, will be in store demonstrating the wood jointing ingenuity of some of Lamello’s products.

Marco’s main focus will be on demonstrating wood joining using the incredible Lamello P-system which includes use of the Zeta P-2 biscuit jointer together with connectors Clamex-P, Tenso-P and Divario-P. The system can be applied to any situation that requires the joining of panels and installing worktops, cabinets, shelving and more. The P-system is fast, precise and quick to set up with the final fittings either visible or barely visible.

If you are about to fit a new kitchen, Marco’s demonstration is an absolute must.

Woodturning With Jason Breach

Jason Breach, Axminster Skill Centre tutor and internationally acclaimed woodturner, will be joining us in store to demonstrate his incredible woodturning skills. Jason will also offer advice and tips, plus go through various techniques that can be applied to the art of woodturning. Jason is well known and highly respected within the woodturning community. He has carried out demonstrations all over the world and has built up a strong following in both the UK and Australia.

Having been involved with woodturning from an early age, the craft has played a huge part in Jason's life and continues to be his passion. One of his trademark skills is making turned boxes, believing that the natural grain and colour of the work should enhance the piece and not be hidden.

If you would like to see a master of woodturning at his craft, come along and watch Jason in action, and be inspired by some of his beautiful creations.

An added bonus is that FREE tea and coffee will be available.
