Anyone who has enjoyed woodworking for hobby or trade realizes that similar to annual classic car round-ups or home and garden expos, woodworking shows offer the chance to socialize with other lovers of wood crafts, see the latest model power tools and even learn a few new tricks of the trade.
This year, The Woodworking Shows will be offering more opportunities to join in on the excitement of sharing and learning in Atlanta on April 1-3 and in Kansas City from April 8-10. This particular show is a great choice for learning new skills; the educational seminars are free as part of the paid general admissions fee of $10 online or $12 at the door.
Woodcraft shows offer the opportunity to see professionals demonstrate how to use hand and power tools to get the best result for your projects. Explore the basics of inlay techniques to add a bit of artwork to your project; enhance your joinery knowledge with a dovetail or mortise and tenon seminar; learn how to make bevel cuts quick and easy; or discover a tool you’ve always wanted to try like creating odd shaped pieces with the band saw or wood-turning on a lathe.
The Woodworking Show offers a project showcase where you can display your craftsmanship to an audience that votes for their ‘overall favorite’. With both an adult and a youth contest, this is a fun way to add to the excitement of your woodworking vacation. At the same time, take the opportunity to visit the booths of well known tool and craft manufacturers like Kreg and Powermatic.
If you belong to a woodworking club, a group trip to a national show such as this one is a great way to share your passion and take advantage of group rate discounts. Continue to grow your knowledge of woodworking by joining with the thousands of hobbyist woodworkers that travel annually to wood craft shows around the country.
