WMT just returned from an action packed weekend in Winston-Salem, NC, which hosted Woodworking in America for 2014. This was our first show, but thanks to a strong presence from the Instagram woodworking community, it felt like we were old pros. We were located within a booth or two from several popular and/or up and coming tool makers who we’ve known through Instagram for some time, but were able to meet in person for the first time this weekend. (Check out their sites and their instagram profiles: Texas Heritage, Sterling Tool Works, Caleb James Planemaker, Peter Galbert, Scott Meeks Woodworks, & Plate 11 Bench Co)
We had a great time, met countless enthusiastic woodworkers (who were very gracious with their feedback on our tools), and drank some of the local brew (which was delicious). If you didn’t make it this year, try for next year. It’s worth the effort.
See you next year.
