As a creator, I must have places to visit in order that I do what I do. Be it tool shops, timber yards I use to get Hardwood, places from which to get my oils, resins, and waxes. These are all particularly important to me. Below is a list of my favourite supplier which I use regularly. I do not gain any commission from them for listing, if they are in the list then IMHO they provide a good service and are dependable.
If you are serious about your craft then you will want to be looking for the best tools you can get. You will not find the tools you need in the regular chain DIY stores, these also charge a lot more for a lot less.
In no particular order.
