The Sears Trostel 2020 Woodworking Show, Sale & Competition — February 20-22, 2020

We love celebrating creativity expressed in wood, and that's what the Sears Trostel Woodworking Show, Sale and Competition is all about!

This is our 17th year to give local woodworkers of all skill levels the opportunity to show-off their woodworking talents, compete for prizes and sell their pieces.

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