I met the North Carolina Woodworkers at WIA 2014

October 15, 20140 Comments

It’s not hard to say that woodworkers are some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. In fact it’s probably one of the easiest things to prove if someone doesn’t believe you. As it goes amongst woodworkers, I’d have to say the folks of the North Carolina Woodworkers group are at the top of that list.


If you were at Woodworking in America 2014 you probably couldn’t help but notice some of the kids in attendance running around with a lightsaber (not actual light for a blade, but a plastic tube with a flashlight…but the other would’ve been cool too) that lit up and had a wooden handle they turned themselves.

Or when you passed by the back wall in the far corner of the market place, there was an amazing walnut chest with something like 20 unique drawer faces that was up for auction. If you were there and you saw these things, that was because of this group.

Rather than tell you myself what the North Carolina Woodworkers like to do when they gather up the group and head out for an event, I’d prefer to let them tell you themselves thanks to the folks at Highland Woodworking.

Or if you’re in and around the Klingspor’s Woodworking Shop Woodworking Extravaganza October 17, 18 2014 in the Hickory Metro Convention center look for them, they’ll be there having just as much fun as when I saw them and they’ll be dragging all of their toys out with them too. Tell them Matt said “HI!”
