For more than 40 years Fine Woodworking has been teaching, inspiring, and connecting with a passionate audience of woodworkers eager for reliable information about the craft. We rely on expert woodworkers—from serious amateurs to veteran pros to legends of the craft—to share firsthand their knowledge, including timeless project ideas and new skills and techniques, both challenging and basic. Fine Woodworking’s compelling content is available in print, on finewoodworking.com, YouTube, Pinterest, Facebook, and Instagram. In addition, we produce the popular biweekly podcast, Shop Talk Live, host Fine Woodworking Live, a yearly weekend retreat of woodworking, and are partners in the public TV show Rough Cut with Fine Woodworking.

Almost three decades ago Arbortech was established in Nannup, a small country town in Australia’s south west, where company founder Kevin Inkster’s passion for woodworking and inventing merged. From these humble beginnings Arbortech’s range of tools has emerged, expanded and gained a worldwide reputation for quality and excellence. The team at Arbortech love what they do, and this is evident in the quality and creativity of Arbortech products. Arbortech tools begin with an idea and are developed through a process of prototyping and testing in collaboration with users, engineers and product designers.
Come and see Arbortech at Wood Dust where their full range of tools for wood carving will be on display.
