Woodturners have a new and exciting resource at their disposal after Robert Sorby announced the launch of its new website, which has been built using the latest in responsive design meaning it will be easy to use on all computer devices and smartphones. As well as in-depth product information on a huge array of Robert Sorby woodworking tools and accessories, the new site offers the opportunity to download product instructions, view engaging and informative films, win fantastic prizes and gives users the chance to provide advice and opinion on its online forum. The site also boasts an interactive flip-through digital catalogue allowing browsers to click-through from links in the catalogue pages to website pages, where further information and engaging content is available at the click of a mouse. Woodworkers wanting to find a stockist can easily find directions through the website’s use of Google Maps and a handy link under each stockist’s contact details takes you straight to their preferred stockist’s Robert Sorby pages. Visit the ‘Resources’ menu for a range of additional exciting features including the ‘Tools and Techniques’ pages where some of the world’s best known woodturners let you into their secrets. Visitors can also see where the Robert Sorby team will be demonstrating tools on the ‘Events’ page. The launch is the first part of a two-phase web project focused on developing engaging content for all woodworkers. Future plans include having an online review section where users can rate tools and a Robert Sorby tools users’ gallery where woodworkers will be invited to send in photos of their work and what Sorby tools they used to complete it.
