Wood has formed a part of many of the Museum’s shows since the 1980s and this two-day event will celebrate its many traditional uses. Visitors to the Wood Show will enjoy a range of wood craft demonstrations, a working wood yard, teams of heavy horses carrying out forestry tasks, exhibitors and displays. Visitors can see the Museum’s Shire horses – Neville, Mac and Major – by visiting the stable yard. Visitors to the Museum’s woodyard and stands around the site will see traditional demonstrations from members of the Association of Pole Lathe Turners and Greenwood workers, and the Sussex & Surrey, Hampshire and Dorset coppice groups. The Museum’s conservation workshop, the Downland Gridshell, will be full of interesting demonstrations, stands and activities, including the Daywood Carvers and the Solent Guild of Wood Carvers. Medicinal Trees Walk: enjoy a 30-45 minute walk, stopping to appreciate the medicinal value of the barks, leaves, sap, buds, fruits and flowers of trees seen on the way.

The Dubai International Wood and Wood Machinery Show is the largest wood industry fair in Middle East. Attendees in the Dubai Wood Show include decision makers and professionals from all sectors of the wood industry.
Dubai, UAE, 15 November 2014: Dubai Wood Show (DWS), the regiona€™s premier timber trade fair, has grown in stature to become the biggest wood and woodworking machinery trade show in the Middle East. Last weekend we spend a good amount of time over 3 days at The Woodworking Show basically to learn how little we really actually know about woodworking.
Sporting her I Heart PowerTools tee, this nice young lady, was very popular with the predominately older male crowd the woodworking show typically brings in. We got word from the router product manager himself these are targeted to ship in early March. Another interesting side attraction at the show is the Show Off Showcase, where local woodworkers can enter their own handy work and all the attendees get to vote on their favorite. If you missed it, take a look at the show highlights here and we hope you can join us for our 2017 event. The Museum is home to over 50 buildings – many of which are timber-framed – so wood is central to the Museum’s conservation work.
From viewing the Museum’s own timber-framed buildings to crafted bowls, furniture, tools, toys and other wood products – there will be plenty to see, do and buy.
Frankie Woodgate (a specialist in sustainable woodland management with her horses) and Robert Sampson (with his magnificent Percherons) will be working in and around the Museum’s woodland. Their members will demonstrate crafts from hedge laying to twig pencil making, and besom broom making to spoon making.
A selection of past and present students who have experienced success in some of the most challenging vocational based skills competitions in the world will be demonstrating their abilities at the event. Visitors can also enjoy viewing the Museum’s collection of historic tools and artefacts, which are on display in the Gridshell artefact store.
Led by herbalist Christina Stapley it will take in around 14 trees with information on their historical and modern uses in medicine. There will also be horse drawn wagon rides throughout the weekend driven by John McDermott and his Percherons.
Please call Simon Bridge, Shop Manager, on 01243 811022 in advance of the Wood Show to check stock availability. To thank you for your Gift Aid donation, we will give you a token to spend in our shop or cafe kiosk.
George’s 6-month placement, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, ran from from October 2016 – April 2016.

Wood products and woodworking machinery manufacturers, producers and traders converge and meet with buyers, end users and potential business partners in this annual event. This includes but is not limited to: engineers and planners, consultants, developers, distributors, contractors, interior designers, furniture manufacturers, carpenters, merchants, building materials, traders and manufacturers.
The show covers all levels of woodworking from very basics that even young kids can get started with, up to very advance techniques, processes & equipment. The holdup is apparently on the parts supply chain side not a design issue and we expect with the years of heavy testing behind this new router it will be problem free out of the gate. We had a chance to sit in on a few presentations and speak with Jim personally, a really nice guy who definitely knows his stuff. The Columbus show winner was Phillip Traudt who built an amazing Carousel Rocking Horse (you can kind of see in the pic above), Phillip best of luck at the finals, we hope you bring one home for Columbus! We will be back next year for sure and in the mean time we’ll buff up on our woodworking skills.
Our goal is to find new tools, accessories, and best possible solutions that will help improve the effectiveness of professionals in their daily jobs.

His school offers classes from basic all the way to master craftsman level; we might just have to sign up ourselves. Master clog maker, Jeremy Atkinson, will demonstrate making traditional nineteenth-century style clogs – he is the last person in England following this traditional craft. You are warmly invited to come and talk to their team who will be on hand to interpret the different methods they progress through the proposed piece. Others use machine soles, which may preclude an acceptable fit, or work with a mixture of machine and traditional tools using pre-planked dry wood.
