SARATOGA SPRINGS — The annual Saratoga Northeast Woodworkers Showcase celebrated it’s 30th anniversary this past weekend on March 25 and 26 at the Saratoga Springs City Center.
What started 30 years ago, with the humble beginning of being held at a high school - put on by a few dedicated woodworkers - now has over 600 members with a show occupying over 15,000 square feet.
The Northeast Woodworkers Showcase highlights all areas of the art of woodworking in a dedicated exhibit room featuring over 500 exhibits of original designed fine furniture, wood sculpture, carvings, intarsia, musical instruments, exquisite turnings, toys, accessories, and all other things crafted of wood.
Exhibits, both amateur and professional, were judged, in multiple categories, including Best of Show and Peoples Choice.
Pictured is a popular piece of the Showcase and first place winner in the Adirondack category by Alan Adler “Child’s Adirondack chair for Granddaughter, Tabitha.”
In addition to the exhibits, there were numerous national and regional trade vendors offering wide varieties of wood and woodworking related tools for all skill levels. Master craftsmen presented lectures and demonstrations on a wide range of woodworking topics.
