If You Enjoy Woodworking Creativity, Don't Miss This Event
Annual woodworking show will feature award-winning artists, live demonstrations, and hands-on classes; Two shows in one also includes steam-powered trains and tractors at the Rough and Tumble "Spring Steam-up"
Visitors can watch live demonstrations, explore exhibits, and enjoy the camaraderie of thousands of fellow woodworkers at the show. Chainsaw carvers, blacksmiths, and woodworking clubs will all present live performances. Forty in-depth classes will be offered on each of the two days, taught by 25 woodworking authorities and award-winning artisans. Leading manufacturers, including Groff & Groff Lumber, Arbortech Tools, MDI, and Seyco, will exhibit their latest woodworking tools and accessories.
The show's sponsor is Fox Chapel Publishing, an independent publisher whose woodworking magazines Woodcarving Illustrated and Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts reach 60,000 subscribers in 57 different countries. For more information, visit http://Wood-
All of this will take place at one of the world's most unique and undiscovered open-air museums, the Rough and Tumble Engineers Historical Association. This hidden jewel offers 33 acres of working historical equipment from the bygone days of farming and industry, including steam-powered trains, a steam-powered sawmill, steam-powered tractors, and vintage autos and trucks. The woodworking show coincides with Rough and Tumble's "Spring Steam-up," so the show provides a rare opportunity to take in two colorful attractions at the same time.
Buying a general admission ticket in advance ($5 per person) gives you entrance on both days. The woodworking classes, offered for both novice and experienced wood crafters, cost extra. For more information, call 1-800-457-9112 or visit Wood-Show.com.
