Last Show of the season

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.

  • Keith on Pallet Wood, Trash Wood, TreasureI wish I knew more people in my area that made small projects. We fill a dumpster with rips and off cuts every couple days. We can’t seem give the stuff away and end up burning a l…
  • Jeff Rogers on Pallet Wood, Trash Wood, TreasureI love the hidden gems that can be found by taking pallets apart and planning off the rough fibers and be able to find quarter sawn material or burl or any other unique grain. Most…
