What a journey of four weeks from early Nov to first weekend of Dec. My bride and I had just left one of my retailers without a check. Sad Day. Now we had to determine what is the best way to sell the serving/cutting boards and bookmarks. Sondra, my bride, on the travel home was searching on the phone for shows in December. There were two the first weekend of December. One in Wooster, about 5 years continuity; one in Akron, 35 years of continuity with over 100+ vendors, two booths remain...

We had a really good day yesterday and I put a pretty big dent in my holiday list. Although I don’t tend to go overboard on getting gifts. I usually give either something that I made with wood or painted (or both) and people seem to like that. Some of you may remember from last year that one of my biggest passions that I have is cool boxes. This year is no different. We have some places here that really do a great job of stocking cool and unusual boxes for gift giving and keeping...
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 bargain...
Since I got the chance to meet Karson and a handful of other LJ’s this past weekend at the Baltimore Woodworking Show, I thought I’d post a blog entry about the upcoming show in West Springfield, MA. If you live anywhere in the area, trek on out to the WoodWorks event this coming weekend (that’s January 9th, 10th and 11th) at the Eastern States Expo Center in West Springfield, MA. I’m going to have a booth set up and would really like to meet more Lumberjocks. This is ...
I have plans on attending two woodworking shows in the Detriot Michigan area… Woodworks Events and The Woodworking Shows. I have all weekend passes so that I do not miss any of the free classes that are held throughout the day. I have been coming to THe Woodworking Show for 6 years and have found the classes and talking with the Suppliers and other woodworkers invaluable. I also plan on attending the “Make Your Own Bandsaw Box” at the Woodworks Events show. I’ll ...
I attended Day 2 of the Woodworks Event (Novi, Michigan; outside of Detriot). The show is very small, but I did encounter one vendor that was of great interest… Bill Bush of Bush Products Inc (along with Lakeshore Hardwoods). Bill gave a very good talk on the stages of sanding and then using oil to finish. I was amazed at the way the PSA (Pressure Sensative Adhesive) Aluminum Oxide paper sanded quickly and efficiently, with very little build up (could just brush away the saw dust). Bill...
