“We are pleased to announce that Easy Wood Tools and Pony Tools have joined forces”, said Craig.  Combining the 112 year history and experience that Pony Tools offers with the innovation of Easy Wood Tools and Craig Jackson creates excitement for the future of the woodworking industry. With a little time, big plans will come together to bring you new products to help you in your shop.  

Craig assured us stating, “When you call our office, you will still be hearing the same voices, working with the same people and your orders will be processed with the same care and dedication from our warehouse.  You won’t see many changes on the surface but rest assured, we are working hard behind-the-scenes to bring you new, top-quality products with the same commitment to the awesome customer service that you are used to.  You, the woodworker are part of our family and we hope that you will welcome Pony Tools into it with the same generosity of spirit that you have shown us these past 8 years.  We sincerely hope you will celebrate this transition with us because it would not have been possible without all of you.  If you have any questions, we are just a phone call away.  Make sure you have joined our email list and follow us on Facebook andTwitter!”

Woodcraft Product Development Director, Darin Lawrence told us, “Both Pony Tools and Easy Wood Tools have been long time partners with Woodcraft.  We anticipate two respected brands joining together to benefit the Woodworking community.”

We look forward to seeing new innovative ideas from this venture to help bring valuable ideas and inspiration to your woodshops.

auf Wiedersehen…Frank!
