PARKERSBURG, W. VA. (October 2012) – Visitors to the Woodcraft Marketplace booth at the Woodworking in America Midwest show on Nov. 2-4 will have a chance to win a hand plane set, watch celebrity woodworkers in action, check out some cool tools and take advantage of show deals. Woodcraft is one of the sponsors of the show which will be held at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center in Covington, Kentucky (across the Ohio River from Cincinnati).

The three-day show, presented by Popular Woodworking magazine, will bring together top craftspeople for classes designed to help the 400 or so advanced woodworkers attending perfect their hand-tool joinery skills. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet other woodworkers and shop the Marketplace for woodworking tools from some of the best toolmakers. For more information about Woodworking in America (WIA), visit www.woodworkinginamerica.com.

Winning visitor. One visitor to the Woodcraft booth will win the WoodRiver Ultimate V3 Bench Plane Set that includes #3, #4, #5, and #6 planes and the new Pinnacle Spokeshave, a $650 value. The winner will be selected in a random drawing from the names of all visitors who registered at the booth during the show.

Celebrity woodworkers. At the Woodcraft booth, hand-tool expert Rob Cosman and his son, Jake, will team up to demonstrate the hand-cut dovetail joint, one of the woodworking skills that brought the elder Cosman worldwide acclaim through his classes and workshops, DVDs, and online workshops (www.handtoolworkshop.com). Both Cosmans will display their skill at using hand tools. Scott Phillips, co-host with his wife Suzy of The American Woodshop on PBS, will demonstrate the skills he uses to build furniture and other pieces for his show, now in its 19th season. Rob and Scott will also do demos in the Shop Talk area of the Marketplace.
