A Woodworking Tradition

The second weekend in April is an important date in the diary for British woodworkers -  it’s the Yandles spring show! 

This woodworking hotspot - based in a historic sawmill and working timber yard in Somerset UK – enjoys a year-round fan base, with people travelling great distances to visit the woodwork equipment centre and art gallery.
For most enthusiasts, the highlight is a visit to the extensive wood store, which houses both native and exotic timber species. From the smallest bowl blanks and carving blocks to magnificent large-scale pieces, visitors are sure to find just the right materials for even the most ambitious of projects. In preparation for the spring show, the entire site is transformed as woodwork suppliers and enthusiasts alike exhibit their wares and celebrate all that’s best in woodworking.

This short film provides just a flavour of the event, but for a first-hand experience, there is another chance in September when Yandles opens its doors again for the Autumn show.
