Woodworking Show March 20, 2016 In Pasadena CA

Local Rockler Store Aims to Fill SoCal Woodworking Show Gap

Rockler Woodworking and Hardware in Pasadena will be hosting a one-day woodworking show on Sunday, March 20, 2016 from 9:00AM to 6:00PM and all are invited to attend. The event will include woodworking seminars and product demonstrations with representatives from major tool companies and local woodworking guilds. The store will also be offering special deals on wood and tools, free refreshments, and more. Though there will be some low-cost “make and take” hands-on projects offered, there is no charge for the event itself. Woodworkers, woodturners, carvers, DIYers, “makers” and the general public are encouraged to attend.

“The regular woodworking shows have given up on Southern California – they're not even touring anywhere west of the Rockies,” says store manager David Tilson. “We are committed to bringing a show back to the San Gabriel Valley, creating an opportunity for woodworkers, DIYers and makers in Los Angeles County to see the latest innovations in tools, technology and safety.” Last year's show held by Rockler attracted over 400 enthusiasts.
