What is kärpəntər?

We have officially launched kärpəntər, our independent tool community. A market place where hard to find independent tools can reach the world wide web.

Why we need a market place for independent tools?

Karpenter tools is a concept from Frank Cochrane and Craig Kempik which is designed to bring the best independent tools to you.

We are constantly scouring the web for the latest and best carpentry equipment. Therefore, we understand how difficult it is to find carpentry products which do not feature on mainstream tool sites.

We also have experience bringing tools to market so we know the difficulties manufacturers are likely to face. This sparked the idea of bringing all these independent tools together in one place, subsequently creating an online community.

It is clear to us there is a gap in the market for a centralised hub for these tools, however, we need your help to transform this market place into a community.

How will it work?

We are above all a trusted site that brings our customers the very best in innovative, independent tools. However, our passion to create an online community for trusted tradesman is at the heart of Karpenter.

Karpenter also offers other quality tool developers an outlet to showcase their products. Our in house brander and marketer can give a professional edge to your product and help promote your tool or jig.

As our catalogue of products grow, so will the reputation of the service provided.  Our aim is to bring together both developers and consumers to ensure the best products are being manufactured.

How can I get involved?

Our plan is to create a community. This means we need you involved.

You can:

  • Follow us on social media.
  • Suggest and raise awareness for tools you want to see manufactured.
  • Pioneer a new way to bring innovative tools to market.
  • Have fun building a new community.

Frank’s FC Facebook page is already a platform where users can offer feedback on the tools, which has positively effected the evolution of the square. Our page is a platform for the many people who don’t use facebook or are not on the carpenter talk groups. We are working on a forum which will allow users to communicate easily with us and there selves.

If you are a carpenter/joiner and you like our products, please support us by purchasing through our website and leave us a review on our product pages. If you have an independent tool you would like to see featured in our shop then please contact us.
