« Part 2: Upcoming woodworking shows Part 3 of Woodworking Journal series Part 4: Woodshow Day 2 »

I attended Day 1 of the Woodworks Events woodworking show near Detriot Michigan today (FRI 11-21-08). Before the show I took a class on “Make Your Own Bandsaw Box”. The class was taught by Geoffrey Noden. The class was good and we made miniture boxes (when I finish sand it and put a finish on it, I’ll post it in my projects). The only shortfall in the class was that it was too short. in regards to the show, it was disappointing. It was about one-quarter of the size of previous woodshows that I have attended in the past. There are free seminars (in addition to the one I paid for) that are worth attending. I’ll be back there tomorrow and will let you know more after that.

Until then… Enjoy!

Was thinking of going but pulled a muscle in my back earlier in the week and cant deal with long periods standing or walking without becoming stiff as a board. Would have liked to have met Mr. Noden. I’ve got one of his Adjust-A-Bench legs sets and have spoke to him via phone a couple times. I do think the paid courses seem to have stepped up a caliber in the instructors vs. The Woodworking Show that used to run the Novi show but think the vendor attendance may be a bit sparse due to the WW Show running theirs in a couple weeks over at the Gibralter Center. Let us know what you think after tomorrow.
