The WoodExpo starts today at noon and I’m going to try to keep everyone updated with pictures and commentary. For Those that don’t know, the WoodExpo is a furniture show presented by Tom MacDonald (of Rough Cut: Woodworking with Tommy Mac on PBS) and hosted by the New England Home Show. This year, we’ve received about 17 “juried” entries and 20 student pieces. In addition to the work, we’ll be having demonstrations by the exhibitors, highlighting the techniques they used in building their pieces. Also, there will be lectures and demos by Glen Guarino, Phil Lowe (Furniture Institute of Massachusetts), Allan Breed (The Breed School), Steve Brown (North Bennet Street School), and others. I’ll post a schedule of events and topics later today, so you can plan a trip for particular demonstrations.
The Home show’s hours are 12-9 today and Friday, 10-9 on Saturday, and 10-6 on Sunday. It’s at the Seaport World Trade Center in the Seaport District of South Boston. Hopefully, I’ll see some of you there, and I’ll certainly be checking in with more info throughout the weekend.
