Each year, the Northeastern Woodworkers Association (NWA) presents a fine woodworking exposition featuring hundreds of pieces of furniture, toys, carvings, turnings, sports equipment, and miniatures by the region's finest woodworkers. This will be the 26th Woodworker's Showcase.
Woodworkers Showcase includes a woodworkers' competition and awards, a special theme display, exhibits by guest organizations, experts available to answer woodworking questions, continuous free lectures and demonstrations, and special exhibits and sale of products by national and area businesses of interest to woodworkers.
This premier woodworking event each year is a two-day show held at the City Center in Saratoga Springs. It provides an opportunity for amateur and professional woodworkers to exhibit their work and to learn from their peers. More than 500 items are exhibited, from small accessory items and turnings to large pieces of furniture. Exhibitors can elect to have their work judged by a panel of nationally known woodworkers.
The Showcase exhibit is open to all who wish to show their work. For those attendees interested in entering their work into the gallery, the entry form is available here in pdf.
