Posted on September 16, 2016 by Nigel Hayes | 0 comments

Micro Wood-turner, Wray Parsons produces some of the finest scissors, sketch pencils, acorn tape measures and thimble holders, magnifying glasses and magnetic needle minders that you will find...anywhere.


Just occasionally an artist’s work is both genuinely beautiful and practical. And this is the case where Wray Parson’s work is concerned.


For over 40 years, Wray has been making magnificent tools for all needle craft artists. He originally began turning wood when making toys for his children and after an early career in corporate banking focused all of his time in developing his micro-woodturning techniques.

Scissors and Pen Pencil set

For 7 years Wray worked at Coombes Emporium, Parksville and then as his reputation began to grow he started working from a new studio built in his home.


The tools that Wray crafts are acknowledged to be among the world’s finest.



They are heritage items designed to be family heirlooms, passed from generation to generation.
