Winter Demonstration Saturdays

February 19, 2018

Saturdays are a great time to stop by Sears Trostel and learn something new.

Ask questions and try products for yourself as our knowledgeable staff spends an hour each Saturday demonstrating tools, finishes, and discussing woodworking techniques — while building fun projects in the process. There’s a different topic each week.

Demonstration Saturdays are 9:30 - 10:30 am at our Riverside store. There’s no need to register and it’s FREE of charge. Come in and join us!

During the Winter series of Demonstration Saturdays from February 24 to March 31, we’ll go through the steps to build a piece, using a variety of Festool tools, woods and other products.


February 24 — Small Tool Crate/Carrier
March 3 —  6-Pack Carrier
March 10 — Cell Phone Charging Easel
March 17 — Message Board & Key Hanger
March 24 — Medicine Cabinet (wall-hanging) using the Kreg Jig system, including pocket screw jointery, hardware and concealed hinge jigs.
March 31 — Stains and Finishes. We’ll be applying General Finishes stains and finishes and discuss the differences between, and when to use, oil-based and water-based finishes/stains.

See you next Saturday!
