Wood Shows #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...

Wood Shows #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...

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.

Wood Shows #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...

Wood Shows #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 ...

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.

PART II: LJ MeetingsInside, we made a quick stop at the Steel City...

MsDebbieP's Company Tours #10: Wood Shows

09-21-2007 03:21 PM by MsDebbieP | 9 comments »

Next weekend (Sept. 29th) Rick and I are headed to the Woodstock Wood Show. This wood show is supposedly the largest one held in Canada. And that’s pretty cool, since it is local! I will be talking with some of the company representatives as well as drooling over some of the tools and watching some demonstrations. Are any of my fellow Ontarians going to attend? I think the plan is to go in the afternoon, since I’ve heard that the crowds are smaller then. Also, I’d lik...

MsDebbieP's Company Tours #3: Lee Valley, Part II

08-03-2007 07:36 PM by MsDebbieP | 23 comments »

(continued from Lee Valley Interview, part I) Following my interview with Robin Lee, President of Lee Valley, I took my Canadian Film Crew with me as I headed to my “local” Lee Valley Store, which is just an hour away, for my very first public appearance as MsDebbieP, the Canadian LumberJock. The weather was the hottest that we’ve had all summer and, boy oh boy, was the hat and coat ever hot! Inside, Don Riley, the store manager, gave me a tour, starting with the warehouse area i...
