I just wrapped up my first experience as an exhibitor at a woodworking show- the Hamilton Woodworking Show in Hamilton, Ontario, about 45 minutes from Toronto airport. It was a great experience, a little smaller than I thought (they say the number of exhibitors was down this year), but my pouches were well received.
The most popular one was the original plywood pouch, I think it’s a pouch most woodworkers can use. It holds several sheets of 3/4” plywood, but you can use it for other sheet goods, drywall, and boards if they’re 8’ long or shorter.
Staying with a friend and using my air miles made doing the show 1500 miles from home a lot more affordable than one 150 miles from here! I’d like to be able to attend more shows, including a venture to the U.S. one of these years, but since this is still only a part-time venture, it will have to be ‘slow and steady’.
I want to thank my fellow LJers who have given me encouragement since I joined here. One thing I’ve found at the wood show, is that woodworkers really make you feel welcome!
