The Sears Trostel 16th Annual Woodworking Show, Sale and Competition — February 21-23, 2019

January 9, 2018

We love celebrating creativity at Sears Trostel — especially when expressed with wood!

During the Sears Trostel 16th Annual Woodworking Show, Sale and Competition we’re giving our fellow woodworkers a chance to show-off their creative talents.

Local artisans exhibit recent woodworking projects, compete for prizes, and have an opportunity to sell their pieces. And this year, craftspeople working with EcoPoxy Resins are also encouraged to enter.

Stop by the show to see a beautiful variety of original works — and maybe even take something home, too.

Each year we are awed by the furniture, turnings, carvings, novelty items, boxes, sculpture, and works with marquetry and intarsia that are entered into the show.
