If you’re in Pennsylvania this November, check out the WoodWorks show. At this and other expos, you can build knowledge of difficult-to-master yet popular skills — plus it’s a great excuse to meet other woodcrafters and talk shop with folks who don’t get glazed-over eyes and start drooling every time you want to yak about glued vs. mechanical-lock joints.
The WoodWorks show features an imperial crap-ton of seminars and demos by people who actually dig what they’re doing and don’t treat you like cattle moving through a chute. The demos cover traditional woodworking without juice (read: hand tools) and some frontier-style woodworking to get the blood flowing the old-fashioned way -– sweat and hard work.
The deal goes down November 7-9, 2008 in York, PA at the York Expo Center. Online entry will set you back $9, or if you’re a spur-of-the-moment type it’s $12 at the door. Either way it’s a fun time that costs about the same as a movie and will most likely entertain you all day.
