Gerald founded Jesse Engineering in the late 90’s. Using his knowledge of tool making and engineering the company has worked hard to provide it’s clients with no fuss solutions to any problems they’ve approached us with. The company is proudly Australian owned and run by the Rensen family on the Gold Coast – over the years it has expanded it’s capabilities to include a suite of manufacturing capabilities, in addition to being sought after for general consultancy work in the product development and engineering fields.
As the company has grown so did Gerald’s hobbies & interests and he began to woodturn which has lead to him now being an avid woodturner. Not completely satisfied with the woodturning tools available online and through his known networks, Gerald started to develop his own woodturning tools – by utilising the years of tool making experience he has, the in house capabilities of Jesse Engineering and the desired results from his woodturning activities. This has lead to the development of a wide range of different woodturning tools and accessories which we now wish to share with the wider woodturner community to allow experienced woodturners to turn better and novice woodturners to learn quicker.
We know that having the right tools is one thing, knowing how to get the most out of them is a whole nother thing. In our blog you will find regular demonstrations on how to get the most out of the tools sold on this store and a range of informative posts and videos on different techniques and ideas on all things woodturning. We encourage all woodturners to contribute to the wider community by sharing their thoughts, questions and experience through our blog. To all of you, from all of us at Jesse Engineering – Thank you and Happy Woodturning!
