The Tenth Annual Woodworking Show and Exhibition 2005, presented by the
Long Island Woodworkers’ Club, will be held this year at the Hofstra
University Arena in Hempstead, NY on Saturday April 9th and 10th. The
Arena is located on Hempstead Turnpike (Route 24). Dozens of exhibitors
and tool vendors will feature everything for the growing interests of
woodworking hobbyists and home improvement do-it-yourselfers, as well as
for professionals in woodworking, carpentry, and building. A juried
furniture and craft exhibition showcases the work of many of the nearly
300 members of the club, many of which will be for sale.
A not-for-profit event, the Show is the only one of its kind in the New
York Metropolitan area, and also features free lectures, seminars, and
how-to demonstrations by world-renowned expert woodworkers like Mario
Rodriguez, Ernie Conover, Aime Ontario Frasier, and many more. Aime will
be featuring topics for “Women in Woodworking”. New this year is a
"Plane Shaving Competition"; bring your own hand plane or buy one at the
Show to try to slice the thinnest shaving for a prize! You’ll find a
pre-owned tool garage sale for bargain hunters and a fully equipped toy
workshop for the kids to enjoy. There’s also a chance to win hourly door
prizes and raffles. Also participating in the event will be members of
the L.I. Woodturners, L.I. area Woodcarvers, and the L.I. Antique Tool
The Show hours are Saturday and Sunday April 9th and 10th from 10 a.m.
