I took my show chairs 420 miles to Kerrville, Texas for The Texas Furniture Makers Show on Monday this week. The show has 58 people entered this year. I arrived at 8:00 am after spending the night at a local hotel and ended up being the first to arrive. After getting my furniture and pedestals inside the building, I decided to take a few pictures to share.

That is some impressive works.

What is the intent of the show? I can’t believe this is general public display.

Steve.

Steve, the show is mainly for professional woodworkers residing in the state of Texas. The show has an apprentice
classification for other Texans to enter their work under. All work entered into the show is juried. The show is in its 10th year and is growing in its reputation for the quality of work displayed.
The show uses a panel of three judges to determine the winners of the prizes given out in the different categories
the furniture has been entered in.
