Guild Hits Gold With Annual Expo

The Northeastern Woodworkers Association of upstate New York has again proven that people working together can make a difference. In March, the group staged its fourth annual Woodworking EXPO at the Saratoga Springs Civic Center, to the delight of almost 6,000 attendees. The show's biggest attraction was the woodworking competition, which included 525 pieces by 81 local artisans.

For two days, the 22,000-sq.-ft. exhibition hall was filled with the sights, sounds and smells of wood as craftsmen demonstrated their specialties and vendors displayed their woodworking wares.

There was also a "Distinguished Woodworkers Galler>,n featuring works by George Nakashima, Sam Maloof. Bob Stocksdale and others—including "60 Minutes" star Andy Rooney, j who was spotted among the show-goers.

AW was well represented at the show. Contributing editor Mike Dunbar carved Windsor chair seats, while Michael Dresdner answered finishing questions. Executive editor Ellis Walentine helped to judge the competition.
