I went to the The Woodworking Shows this weekend and was pleased that the show had the familiar top suppliers that it had in past years. Although smaller than ones in the past, it was very good. Jim Heavey of WOOD Magazine, was there and offered three very good free classes. I look forward to his instruction each year. Detroit had the Woodworks Events woodworking show a couple of weeks ago (see previous blog entry), which was much smaller and had a poor turn-out of suppliers (with few bargains). At this weekend’s woodworking show (The Woodworking Shows) there were top suppliers, great bargains, and good free educational seminars. The only thing missing was the paid hands-on classes that were at the Woodworks Events show. Due to the bargains, I was able to purchase the Carter Band Saw bearing upgrade kit for my 14” Rikon and the Bosch Lithium pocket driver… both I’ve wanted for quite a while.
Just thought I’d spread the word about the show!
