The Woodworking Shows in Our Backyard

Kansas City was a great show with a huge turnout, but Ft. Worth is a whole lot more convenient, especially when traveling and setting up a 30 X 30 booth complete with furniture, displays, a large bench and all the necessary demonstration stuff!

We will be in Ft. Worth this March 8-10 at the big traveling Woodworking Shows. We will have lots of furniture on display including many of the items that you can build in any one of our special furniture making classes.  I will also bring along my recently completed Rose table.

We will have ongoing demonstrations throughout the day, including demos on through dovetails, half blind, and tapered sliding dovetails.

We will be demonstrating on inlay and hand planes. Joe Slack will do a 1 hour Guitar Making seminar each day in the booth at 2:00.


I am really excited about a new demonstration that I will be bringing to the show. I did a little in Kansas City, so I have included a few pictures here.

The demo is on 17th century wood preparation. I will start with wood that I split from a log with a froe. I will then use a hatchet to rough shape it and then work it down with a wooden scrub plane and jointer plane. It is perfectly straight grain making it the best oak money can’t buy, because it is split as opposed to sawn. Come to the booth and I will explain more about the process and show you how it’s done!
