Two Ohio Woodworking Shows Coming November 2012-Woodworking In America: Part 1

Two of the finest wood shows are coming back to Ohio during the first two weekends in November.
(See the WIA special money saving entrance coupon at the end of this blog from Woodcraft!)

First is the Woodworking in America Show (WIA) in Cincinnati Ohio, November 1-4, 2012. Although it is technically being advertised as the Mid-West show in Cincinnati, Ohio, it is actually at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center in Covington, Kentucky. Featured woodworking speakers will be Roy Underhill, promoting his traditional use of hand tools. Master cabinetmaker Frank Klausz will be teaching on hand-cut dovetails. From the Marc Adams School of Woodworking, Marc will be covering the many venues of woodworking. Windsor Chairmaker, Curtis Buchanan will also be lecturing. 

Show hours are as follows:
Thursday, November 1: 3:00pm – 6:00pm
Friday, November 2: 7:00am – 6:00pm
Saturday, November 3: 8:00am – 6:00pm
Sunday, November 4: 8:45am – 11:00am

Now if you’ve never seen Roy Underhill’s charismatic woodworking charm, then you’ve missed out. So here is just a small snip-it with Roy demoing SawStop’s technology with no, not a hot dog, but a leg of country fried chicken!

Woodcraft is one of 6 sponsors and will have a booth at WIA, so stop by and visit us.

Pictured left to right below are Tim Royse and Mark Miller from our Cincinnati and Lexington Woodcraft stores, Don Weber of Handcraft Woodworks, Rob Cosman, Your Hand Tool Coach, Tommy Mac of Rough Cut, Craig Jackson, President of Easy Wood Tools and Scott Phillips of The American Woodshop. All sharing good times at the Cincinnati Woodcraft store during last year’s WIA Show!

At WIA 2012, Scott Phillips of The American Woodshop will be demonstrating the skills he uses to build furniture and other pieces for his show, now in its 19th season.  Additionally, he will speak at the “Shop Talk, Friday from 2-3 on Woodworking Tips and Tricks. Rob Cosman, Your Hand Tool Coach will be teaming up with his son Jake, providing instruction on hand-cut dovetails, one of the woodworking skills that brought Rob worldwide acclaim through his classes and workshops, DVDs, and online workshops (www.handtoolworkshop.com).  Rob will also lecture on Saturday from 2-3pm at the “Shop Talk” event on Cutting Dovetails by Hand. Tommy MacDonald of Rough Cut will be speaking at “Shop Talk” on Saturday from 12-1pm on Classic Case Construction; Tips and Techniques.

Tool demos and deals can be found by stopping by the Woodcraft booth. Visitors will see free demos by representatives of several woodworking tool companies: Imperial Blades, Rick Knutson and Chris Palmer; Easy Wood Tools, Craig Jackson; Kreg Tools, Brett DeMello; and  Rob Cosman Specialty Tools. Ben Bice, product manager, and Andrew Bondi, power tool sales manager, will show Woodcraft’s Pinnacle and WoodRiver brand tools. Tools will be available for sale, and special “show deals” will be offered.

You never know what you may learn at WIA until you experience it for yourself. Last year Rob Cosman enlightened the crowd by introducing his new Dovetail Marking Knife...


Finally, In this video, Charles Brock, The Highland Woodworker speaks to us about the essence of what Woodworking in America is all about. He talks about American ingenuity, craftsmanship, Sculptures That Rock with his profession and proudly using your hands to make a living, along with one of his protege’s Ian Grundner, one of the future woodworker’s of America.

Please join us at Woodworking In America, coming November 2-4, 2012.
