These pics were taken at the start of the show before too many folks came in.. you can see just how much room we all had this time… This is also only part of the woodworkers area… not the whole show…The last 2 photos are of some sculpture made from metal and a metal chess set… I know it is not wood but it was magic just the same…... <
Yup… just got the confirmation from Aaron at Torque Workcentres… they would like me to go to Sydney Timber and Working with Wood Show to help with the demonstrations.. Last year, I clocked up a lot of frequent flyer miles doing the show circuit with the TWC…Maleny, Brisbane, Canberra, Adelaide, Launceston with two trips to Melbourne the year before.. getting quite good at assembling the machines and putting together a stand at these shows.. But this will be the first time...
Dropped by this morning and checked out the show…Here are some pics of inside the hall…panned from left to right. There seems to be a small spot out the back that would accommodate the Torque WorkCentre and possibly some of the timber and maybe a table of boards… so loading up the Ute and trailer… off to the show in the morning… Will call in at the factory to help Aaron load a TWC and be there by 8 in the AM to set up… Show goes from 8.30 to ab...
I love a sunburnt country, A land of sweeping plains, Of rugged mountain ranges, Of droughts and flooding rains… Ok, enough of the flooding rains for a while or at least while the Maleny Wood Expo is on… Off to the show this morning… just packing the last minute things… Did not exactly burn the midnight oil but it was nearing 10 PM when I finished oiling the last of 55 new boards… half of which were made yesterday… I had fun sitting wai...
2/19/11 Kitchener, Ontario, March 11-13, 2011 Who is planning on attending the woodshow in Kitchener this year? Rick & I prefer going on the Friday afternoon, but if there is a possibility of a group of LumberJocks meeting up then we are flexible. Ryan Shervill is going to be there, I see, facilitating some seminars.
A month or so ago, Kevin posted a blog about his woodshow Niagara Falls (Canada). Rick and I decided to make the 2-1/2 hour drive, to hand-deliver some LJ pencils, meet Kevin in person, and have a lovely drive as a bonus. The drive was lovely and, having given ourselves lots of “get lost time” we arrived at the Home Depot at about 9:30 AM. At the wood show, I met Kevin, did a quick handshake and then headed off to the restrooms. (That was the last I saw of Kevin. He received...
October 1, 2010 This morning, Rick and I headed to the wood show in Woodstock, Ontario. Earlier this week, Prez contacted me to plan a meeting at the show. Rick and I hadn’t been inside the door for a minute and I was greeted with a hello. We had a wonderful chat (then and later on in the day as well) (See that extraordinary piece of wood behind us? Oh how I’d love to have that hanging in my house.) AND what a surprise I got when Prez handed me a gift! As an avid reader t...

The Kitchener Wood Show is March 12-14/10. Since there are so many LumberJocks in Ontario, I thought we should arrange a “meet and greet” at the show. Proposal:We meet at a designated location to take a group picture and chat for a bit before continuing on our way at the wood show. Date: Saturday March 13Time: 12:00 NoonMeeting Spot: The Extreme Birdhouses I think John said that he will have a display at the wood show. We could meet at his location and check out the Ex...
Jan 29/10 This weekend is the Hamilton Wood Show. Rick and I had originally planned to attend yesterday but he wanted to get the branches picked up from the Grand Ol' Lady, our maple tree, that “we” cut down this week so we decided to go this morning instead. So this morning, we packed up and headed out in time to get to the show close to when it opened. However—as we were driving down the highway the one tire was feeling a wee bit funny. I’d have to take it into...
