Amazon has it for $239 with free shipping and no sales tax.. but of course you have to wait for it to arrive and not have it in your hot little hands the same day...
I also hope the Columbus show is a lot better than the Timonium MD show was.. that show was to put it mildly - HORRIBLE... the rep from PC was the worst I ever dealt with. I called PC and complained about the lack of service and product knowledge of the rep.. they actually sent me a $50 coupon towards any PC tool I want and an apology... did not expect that..
The seminars were great though... especially the bowl turning and pen turning seminars..
The Woodworking Shows are usually good. I'm going to my first 'Wood Works' show in Ontario in a few weeks. From the advance publicity, the Wood Works does not appear to have the vendor support, however there seems to be better free seminars etc. Ah, we'll all know in a few weeks.
WoodWerks is a woodworking store in Columbus. They along with others will be at the show. Most of the big names are also listed too. Jet,Delta, PC, and a lot more as I understand it will be there. It's the 16th thru 18th
I went to the Woodworking Show... wife even made hotel reservations for me to stay overnight so I could go both days... by 1PM I had canceled the reservations and was home (70 miles away) by 8PM... the show was very disappointing... I did get a good deal on a router table though from Woodpecker...
All in all not a great show at all... small and almost completely dominated by The Woodworker's Choice store... they must have had almost 20% of the show space and the deals were not all that great..
Ok let me try this again. As I understand it one of the main sponsera is "WOODWERKS supply inc" so their are calling it Wood Werks Expo.
I have no idea of the quality of the show, this will be my first one, but the do have several of the big names listed as being vendors for the expo. It's next weekend at the Ohio state fairgrounds hours are Fri 16th 8:30-5;30, Sat 17th 8"30- 5"30, and Sun th 18th 10:00- 3:00.
Ok ? ok !
Note: the first two pictures, top to bottom, show the sample woods I bought to match: mahogany, walnut, oak, the bottom is the side of the table. The remaining 3 pictures are of the wood in question...
