Sources of Supply for Woodworkers

Trevor Pope –

This list is aimed at woodworkers based in Gauteng , but does include some suppliers elsewhere in South Africa. It was first published some time ago, but has now been updated and corrected. Many suppliers have web sites, and some even have catalogues on-line, so go to their sites for the latest info.

 

Where possible, all the details have been checked, but things change. Contributions to the list and corrections are welcome – please send them to me at tpope AT iafrica.com or pass them onto me at a WWA club meeting. 

(Email addresses have been obfuscated to reduce spam. Replace AT with @ for a valid email address.)

Thanks to the many club members, in particular, the Secretary Alistair who have suggested suppliers over the years and supplied corrections and updates. Also, I've lifted a few details from other newsletters to improve coastal coverage.
