Texas makers take center stage

oow_traytableThe annual Texas Furniture Makers’ Show strives to put the spotlight on the state’s furniture makers. It’s most recent show, held Oct. 27 through Dec. 2, did just that.

oow_nightstandThe show featured 53 pieces by 39 makers and was judged by Asa Christiana, former editor at Fine Woodworking magazine; Danny Kamerath of Mason, Texas, and Peter Kennedy of Austin, Texas.

“In keeping with our purpose to improve the craft, a seminar was held the first weekend of the show,” Teri Valentine says. “Asa Christiana’s presented ‘Build Stuff with Wood,’ in which he taught how to set up a simple shop space and how to use just a few hand-held power tools to build surprisingly stylish and fun projects.”

The show also featured a “judges critique,” which gave constructive evaluations to each furniture maker who wished to have their pieces critiqued.

The show provides a formal gallery atmosphere for the furniture makers to exhibit and sell their handcrafted accessories to the public.
