The 12th Annual Port Townsend Woodworkers Show is coming November 4 & 5

The 12 th annual Port Townsend Woodworkers Show will take place on the weekend of November 4-5, 2017, at the American Legion Hall at the corner of Water and Monroe streets in downtown Port Townsend. The doors will be open from 11am-8pm on Saturday (including Gallery Walk) and 11am-3pm on Sunday. Admission is free.

The purpose of the show is to introduce the Olympic Peninsula’s community of talented and accomplished wood artisans to the public, and to provide an opportunity for woodworkers to present and discuss their work in a relaxed and informal setting. Exhibitors include furniture and cabinetmakers, luthiers and instrument makers, boat builders, carvers, sculptors, jewelers, turners, and students from the Chimacum and Port Townsend High School woodworking programs.

The popular annual exhibition has become a Port Townsend institution, with an estimated audience of more than 1800 viewing the exhibits over the course of the weekend.

This year’s show will feature new work and new exhibitors in addition to returning artists.

The show is organized and presented by The SplinterGroup– a loose-knit collective of woodworkers with the mission statement: “Dovetailing two communities – Woodworkers and Port Townsend.” SplinterGroup members are local professional woodworkers Steve Habersetzer, Michael Hamilton, David Kellum, Tim Lawson, John Marckworth and Seth Rolland.

Sponsors of this year’s show include Carl’s Building Supply, Edensaw Woods Ltd., Henery’s Do It Best Hardware, the Port Townsend School of Woodworking, The SplinterGroup, and Wallyworks Construction, Inc.
