The Woodworking Shows have added a Ft Worth show to their 2013 calendar – March 8-10, 2013, in Ft Worth. Due to the late addition to the calendar, a list of vendors is not available on their website and may influence how many vendors will actually include it in their rotation.
In addition, a private Texas individual, who loves woodworking, is responding to the lack of Woodworking Shows in Texas by starting his own: http://texaswoodworkersshows.com/index.html
Rumor has it this individual is so committed to this endeavor he withdrew a large portion of his retirement funds to get it started.
They already have commitments from several vendors, including Legacy, which is possibly bringing their new EVOlution 7 axis ornamental mill. Due to some weather and transportation issues, Legacy will not be showing the EVOlution at the regular Woodworking Shows, so this will be your opportunity to take a look at a 7 axis machine.
The Texas Woodworkers Show will also feature a Student Competition. Check out the website for more details.
Participation / attendance will influence the number or continuance of these type shows. I for one have been disappointed with the decline in the Woodworking Shows over the past several years, but continue to hope they make a comeback to their previous form. I can only hope the Texas Woodworkers Show is worth the investment.
