Northern Woods Exhibition

It's time for Minnesota woodworkers to come together for the 28th annual Northern Woods, an exhibition of fine woodworking sponsored by the Minnesota Woodworkers Guild. Last year we had a great time. During the four days of this event, we met quite a few fellow woodworkers and had a chance to see a lot of beautiful new projects. The greatest reward from the show is discussing the pieces with visitors. It's always fun to hear their reactions to the work. A great learning experience. Be sure to check out last year's 'Best-in-Show'! Other award-winning entries from 2010 can be seen by clicking here.

I'm busy in the studio, working to complete a new piece for the show. If all goes as planned, the finish should be fully cured by the time the piece hits the exhibition floor!

If you are a woodworker in Minnesota, I hope you will consider entering a piece. Click here for the online entry form. Deadline for Entry is April 11, 2011. I highly recommend the experience. I don't think you'll regret it! And you don't need to be a guild member to enter. Amateurs and professionals are all welcome.

If you're not a woodworker, but never seem to get enough tree in your life, come on down to Southdale Center on April 28th - May 1st. You'll be glad you did. We'll see you there!
