5,000 0


Klingspor’s Woodworking Shop is proud to present our 13th annual Klingspor’s Woodworking Shop Extravaganza held at the Hickory Metro Convention Center on October 18th and 19th.  It is the only show of its kind in North Carolina and is open to the public with free admission, parking, demos, classes, door prizes, and more.  More than 4,500 were in attendance in 2012.

Located in the beautiful foothills of North Carolina at the Hickory Metro Convention Center, the Extravaganza is the only woodworking show of its kind in North Carolina.  The admission is free, the parking is free, the demos and classes are all free, free locally grown apples, which were enjoyed by people from over fifteen states last year, free registration for door prizes and much, much more.  We will be giving away several door prizes with the grand prize being a $1,250 gift certificate.  Come in and register to win a FREE truck that will be given away in 2014.  Read on to find out more about some of the classes and demos that will be on hand. 

Last year we had nearly five thousand people in attendance and this year is looking as if we will exceed that number.  We have over forty-five vendors represented from companies like Powermatic, Jet, Porter-Cable, DeWalt, SawStop, Bosch, Carter, Bessey, Rikon, Odie’s oil, and more. 

Come check out or participate in the 12th Annual Woodcarving Competition and Show – Sponsored by: Catawba Valley Woodcarvers Association.  Some of the FREE classes & demos include: Learn-To-Turn in the 10 lathe mobile classroom with the Carolina Mountain Woodturners.  Other special turning demos will be done by Nick Cook, Morris Schlesinger and others.  Come watch an artist carve using nothing but a chainsaw.  Ben Hobbs will be on hand teaching traditional woodworking methods and how to make cabriole legs. 

If you have wanted to get into woodworking, there will be several local clubs on hand for you to connect with, like the folks from, Carolina Mountain Woodturners, NC Woodturners, Catawba Valley Woodcarvers, Western Piedmont Woodcrafters, and more.  Bring the kids out and let them learn to turn, come alone or with friends, but don’t miss this “must see” event.  After all, it’s FREE.  Learn more at our website
