We’re off to see the wizard, the wonderful wizard of wood!

Yes, it is woodworking show season once again in Melbourne!  Can’t wait 🙂

Along with all the usual suspects, and the restocking that I find I do a lot at the shows, an interesting development from Carbatec:  the big catalogue is back! (Finally!!)

But it is bigger than ever – previous ‘full’ catalogues were around 150 pages.  The latest one is massive – 384 pages!  Of course, going that large does come at a price – literally.  A whopping $5.  Or free if you spend over $100.

Do hope the show has some new stuff to see – as much as I enjoy catching up with people, and restocking consumables, the show should be about new products, new techniques (and not just the same old).  As much as sales are needed to justify the huge expense of a stand, the show itself needs to encourage more than that.

Check out a Maker Faire, or the AWFS for how other shows do it.
