Here is the full Woodworking Show album. The Woodworking Shows
I attended as part of the Georgia Woodworkers Guild.
The Guild has a booth and shows guild member works. These are judged and prizes are awarded. It is also a great time for guys to talk about woodworking.
I attended the show Friday afternoon, from about Noon until 3pm. As you can see the attendance is very good. I can expect that it would be larger on Saturday and Sunday.
In my opinion the show has gotten stronger. I talked with one of the exhibitors who has been around a long time. He said the new show owner is a young man who is really trying to the show right and treat everyone right. Free seminars and other improvements have been made. It is noticed that Rockler, Woodcraft and Lie-Nielsen are NOT present. I have always looked at these shows a place to get deals. The big name brand dealers just do not feel it is their market place. This could changes if attendance keeps building. Lee Valley does a really good job in their booth. All of the reps had iPads to look up items.
Peachtree Woodworking has about 12-14 booths. They are selling everything. The have solid representation for name brands like, JET, Powermatic, Kreg, Bosch, Bessey and others. The also have a very large inventory of their own brands, FULTON and Stone Mountain. I did purchase a replacement for my base router table fence. $23.
So I enjoyed the show. These are always interesting.
