Hmmm, never been to one of these. Anyone know what to expect?

A lot of overpriced tools but there are some great free classes.

Lol. I have seen some deals…. It is a good opportunity to see a wide variety of woodworking related projects and they have 4-5 different education tracks running. Worth spending a few hours running around or even a full weekend if you want to attend all the classes.

Defenitly worth going. There are some deals but be carefull becaues they are mixed in with some things that are very overpriced.

Oh, and there is beer there. At least at the Atlanta show, I didnt realize it until I as about to leave which sucked.

I sat in on a great hand tool class hosted by this Engish gentelman, Grahm Blackburn I think was his name.

This is a great show. I only wish that we here in Southeastern Michigan were have the show. For whatever reason the show will not be here this year. I only hope that if you are close to the show you will attend!!

Thanks for sharing

I have only gone in Sac the last few years and others who have gone for many years say it is only half the size of 10 years ago…but for me they have been fun…

I might go….

I’ve gone for the past 4 years. I always end up picking something up from PeachTree USA or woodline. I enjoy talking to other woodworkers at the shows too. Last year, I spoke to Jim Heavey (Wood Magazine) and Roland Johnson (Fine Woodworking).

I’ll at the Sacramento show on Saturday. Who else is game?

I will be attending the one in Sacramento although I am not sure which day just yet as I am waiting for them to post a schedule of events. The people at the Woodworking Show main office and I exchanged emails earlier this week and it is suppose to be posted soon.

It would be great to meet up with any of you who are going.
