16th Annual Long Island Woodworking Show

Though it appears I will be missing this local event to take my kids to visit my Grandmother, I’d like to invite everyone to attend the Long Island Woodworkers 16th Annual Long Island Woodworking Show.
The barn that houses the Long Island Woodworkers Woodworking Shows.
The show is being held in a beautiful timber framed barn on the grounds of the Old Bethpage Village Restoration Fairgrounds for the 3rd (or 4th) year in a row. It’s a beautiful venue and the building is just the right size to house the small to medium show.
My Dad's winning carvings from 2010.
As with most shows, it’s a combination of member exhibits and vendors, with the odd lecture thrown in for good measure.

If anyone is in the area and thinking of attending I’d encourage you to use the comments here as a method of coordinating your trip so it can serve as a Modern Woodworkers Association meetup too.

I’ll post if my plans change, but assuming I’ll be on Cape Cod for the weekend, have a great time.

  1. Looks like a great event Dyami! It would be nice to have a showing out there. Anyone that does make it be sure to take lots of pictures and let us know all about the great woodworking.
