The Working with Wood exhibition all started on the Garden Route, the very first exhibition taking place in Knysna, the event quickly established itself as a leading wood working and tool show in South Africa, becoming Africa’s most diverse Woodworking and Woodcraft event. Over 2,500 visitors throng annually to the shows and enjoy the impactful engagement with wood.

Top South African and international demonstrators share their woodworking skills and crafts from woodturning, carving, chair-making, sharpening, pyrography, boatbuilding to furniture making. Everything timber related and eco related, from mobile milling of slabs, to fine furniture and sculptures, sustainable alternatives for the home and natural resource management displays. These events showcase sustainable timber production.

 

The Working with Wood show this year in George will again feature top wood working experts.

The Festivals highlights will be a large exhibition of tools, equipment and demonstrations of the latest woodworking and woodturning equipment. Special prices on equipment and supplies will be on offer, a special programme for women in wood turning, the launch of the SA Turners without Borders a project in partnership with AAW. Woodturning Demonstrations and Enhancements, the global trend in woodturning is all about enhancing your work.

The latest in new equipment, the systems and specialist tools for enhancements will be on show, working demonstrations on techniques such as airbrushing and carving and demonstrations in specialist turning techniques. A number of local experts will give you new insights into wood turning techniques. Each specialist will present a technique in a live demonstration.

The Working with Wood organizers will have all their major suppliers of international brands, equipment and products on show and will be presenting the latest tools and technology at the exhibition, leading brands such as Festool, Triton, Kreg, Howard Products, Pro Tech, Tork Craft, Bessey, Felo, Alpen, MPS, Spring Tools, Mag Switch, Aircraft, Drill Doctor, Armor and the latest revolutionary circular saw from Saw Stop, the blade carries a small electrical signal, which the safety system continually monitors. When skin makes contact on the blade, the signal changes because the human body is conductive. The change to the signal activates the safety system.

An aluminium brake springs into the spinning blade, stopping it in less than 5 milliseconds! The blade’s angular momentum drives it beneath the table, removing the risk of subsequent contact and power to the motor is automatically shut off. Resetting the saw yourself is easy. Simply replace the blade and affordable brake cartridge and your saw is operational. The entire reset process takes less than five minutes.

All the brands and products will be on show and will be demonstrated.
