This is the last weekend of the season for The Woodworking Shows’ show and I am amazed how far people have come to join us. The work behind the scenes continues to make the show a success and also stuff far beyond what anyone might see.

Sherry Chadwick has quite a register of young people she is helping to showcase their work and their eneavours in woodworking and addressing so many issues in the day to day running of the shows as is Bryce, Charlene, Rita and many others, not to mention all of the vendors, demonstrators too. DSC_0042A show-on-the-road like this is no small thing and when you look at how few people pull this thing together it’s quite remarkable. I am sure that even more than me they are ready for a a little rest and recreation after a long and hard slog.

We continue with the bench build today. Still a lot to do but I do have some help from friends and will post on all of that later today.

Better get going here, having breakfast with a friend and then on to a long day at the show!

Hope to see you there.

  • YrHenSaer on Not Good, Not Good!Regardless of the merits or otherwise of the book in question, I regret to say that this episode, for me, is characterised by an ungracious, ill-mannered dismissal of another perso…
  • Ermir on Not Good, Not Good!Dear Harun, I have benefited mostly from Paul's reviews. They are honest reviews, not biased, not sponsored and above all professional. On one hand think about the Spear & Jack…
  • Tad on Not Good, Not Good!I understand Paul's frustration. I recently have fallen victim to this. I saw a high school textbook from the 1940s about wood tuning on YouTube and they showed how the book had sc…
