I went to this thing in Dallas last week. For me (beginner idiot) it was good. For people who know stuff, it really isn’t much, although they’re under new ownership so maybe it will be on the upswing. The best part of this thing definitely is the seminars, you can talk to the guys one-on-one pretty much as long as you want in between, that is also great. If the seminars are different enough next year I might go. Otherwise I’ll skip it because there aren’t a lot of vendors that interested me and the deals weren’t dramatic. Incra’s HQ is in DFW and they didn’t even show up. Woodpecker was there and I bought a couple things from them that was on sale. Kreg was there, Peachtree WW, otherwise….eh.

The big Cincinnati show was the week before, so I was wondering if the woodworking world was like the PGA tour. Cincinnati would be a major and the DFW show would be a dinky tournament after a major, when all the big shots take time off.

Who knows. If you’re new to woodworking I think it’s worth it.
