Part 2: Ah, wood shows

01-27-2007 11:52 PM by MsDebbieP | 11 comments »

Yes, today Rick and i headed to a woodshow in the region. We went to check out lathes. Lathes… hmm that’s an interesting topic. Let’s go there for a moment. We first looked at lathes in our local big box store and asked about lathe tools. They don’t carry them. “Why not?” we asked. Well, it seems that once someone buys their lathe tools they don’t usually by many more so they don’t sell a lot. Ok. That makes sense—almost. They probably don...

Part 3: Canadian Home Workshop Show (2)

03-01-2008 10:18 PM by MsDebbieP | 21 comments »

Saturday, March 1, 2008 Today, Rick and I went to the Canadian Home Workshop Show in Toronto. When we first arrived we were allowed to go in early because I had the Awards Winners poster to be put on display at the Steel City Tool Works booth. Next, we made our way to the Master’s Workshop where I found Ryan Servill preparing for his day. Ryan, over the duration of the show was building a duplicate to this cabinet. The quote from the Show Magazine says, ” Watc...

October 3, 2008 NOTE: Martin wanted a series. So the sections are for him. He is the boss, remember. PART I: ArrivalThis morning, Rick and I attended the Woodstock Wood Show. With approximately 100 exhibitors there was lots to take in and many opportunities for a good deal. Arriving early, we made it near the front of “parking lot line” that was forming on the street, waiting to get in when it opened. PART II: LJ MeetingsInside, we made a quick stop at the Steel City...

Dec. 6/08 Last night Rick and I went to St. George, to Morley Miller Machinery. For their Christmas Open House they had a some company reps present to answer any questions about their products. In attendance were representatives from Steel City, King Canada, and BlackJack. We checked out a number of gadgets at the BlackJack display, including some sanding drums that attach to a drill press. You just cut your sandpaper to size, slip it around the drum, slide it into the drill press ...

Feb 28, 2009 Rick and I headed to the Canadian Home Workshop Show in Toronto this morning. First we headed to say hi to Ryan and check out the tool chest and draw prize that he spoke about in his blog. What a wonderful guy. Always nice to see you, Ryan! (I thought it would be fun to have my picture taken, showing what I will look like when I win the prize). And here is the chest filled with tools. Next, we wandered around all the exhibits. One display that I had not seen ...

Part 7: Woodstock 2009

10-02-2009 07:52 PM by MsDebbieP | 11 comments »

October 2/09 Rick and I attended the “Woodstock Wood show” (Ontario Canada) this morning. It was a beautiful rainy day—perfect weather for trekking around in the mud and getting chilled through and through. But—it’s a wood show. You can’t go wrong. The crowds weren’t huge but then it is a Friday morning and it is raining. I spoke to some of the familiar faces: Jim McEntee from Steel City and Paul Fulcher, from Canadian Woodworking to ...

Part 9: Hamilton, Ontario 2010

01-31-2010 12:50 AM by MsDebbieP | 18 comments »

Jan 29/10 This weekend is the Hamilton Wood Show. Rick and I had originally planned to attend yesterday but he wanted to get the branches picked up from the Grand Ol' Lady, our maple tree, that “we” cut down this week so we decided to go this morning instead. So this morning, we packed up and headed out in time to get to the show close to when it opened. However—as we were driving down the highway the one tire was feeling a wee bit funny. I’d have to take it into...

The Kitchener Wood Show is March 12-14/10. Since there are so many LumberJocks in Ontario, I thought we should arrange a “meet and greet” at the show.

Part 11: Kitchener, Ontario 2010

03-13-2010 12:19 AM by MsDebbieP | 6 comments »

March 12/10 This afternoon Rick and I went to the Kitchener Wood Show to check out all the goodies as well as meet some fellow LumberJocks. We arrived early but we had some LJ pencils for John (Extreme Birdhouses) to hand out and so we got in a wee bit early, giving us some time to chat with John before the crowds arrived. How exciting it is to see John’s business become so successful. It was also, I might add, the highlight of the entire show. :) At the show, we saw lots of w...

Part 12: Woodstock Ontario, 2010

10-01-2010 10:39 PM by MsDebbieP | 14 comments »

October 1, 2010 This morning, Rick and I headed to the wood show in Woodstock, Ontario. Earlier this week, Prez contacted me to plan a meeting at the show. Rick and I hadn’t been inside the door for a minute and I was greeted with a hello. We had a wonderful chat (then and later on in the day as well) (See that extraordinary piece of wood behind us? Oh how I’d love to have that hanging in my house.) AND what a surprise I got when Prez handed me a gift! As an avid reader t...

Part 13: Niagara Woodworking Show 2010

10-30-2010 09:51 PM by MsDebbieP | 21 comments »

A month or so ago, Kevin posted a blog about his woodshow Niagara Falls (Canada). Rick and I decided to make the 2-1/2 hour drive, to hand-deliver some LJ pencils, meet Kevin in person, and have a lovely drive as a bonus. The drive was lovely and, having given ourselves lots of “get lost time” we arrived at the Home Depot at about 9:30 AM. At the wood show, I met Kevin, did a quick handshake and then headed off to the restrooms. (That was the last I saw of Kevin. He received...

2/19/11 Kitchener, Ontario, March 11-13, 2011 Who is planning on attending the woodshow in Kitchener this year? Rick & I prefer going on the Friday afternoon, but if there is a possibility of a group of LumberJocks meeting up then we are flexible. Ryan Shervill is going to be there, I see, facilitating some seminars.
