MsDebbieP's Company Tours #10: Wood Shows

09-21-2007 03:21 PM by MsDebbieP | 9 comments »

Next weekend (Sept. 29th) Rick and I are headed to the Woodstock Wood Show. This wood show is supposedly the largest one held in Canada. And that’s pretty cool, since it is local! I will be talking with some of the company representatives as well as drooling over some of the tools and watching some demonstrations. Are any of my fellow Ontarians going to attend? I think the plan is to go in the afternoon, since I’ve heard that the crowds are smaller then. Also, I’d lik...

At the bottom of a ravine I first spotted an old pine that had escaped the logging crews of yesteryear. At first I thought this one was the only one out there, but after looking ...
