ABOUT WOOD EXPO 2011

New England Home Show’s 61st annual gathering of innovative Home, Remodeling, and Home Decor vendors, will also be host to WoodExpo 2011. Tommy MacDonald, the star of WGBH's Rough Cut-Woodworking with Tommy Mac, wanted to feature fine furniture designed and made by artists, and so WoodExpo was born.  Now in its third year the show has grown and will have a juried exhibition and speakers. 


The Seaport World Trade Center, located at 200 Seaport Blvd, Boston MA, 02210 will be the location for this event from February 24 through February 27, 2011. The hours for the show will be Thursday to Friday from noon to 9:00 pm, on Saturday from 10:00am to 9:00pm and Sunday 10:00am to 6:00pm.  General admission is $12.00 for adults at the door and $9.00 when purchased online; children under 17 are free.    For additional information and directions please refer to http://newenglandhomeshows.com/exhibit_info.html  or contact Neil Lamens at    WoodExpoUS@gmail.com, 631-286-7948  To see information about WoodExpo2011 and the speakers visit  http://www.thomasjmacdonald.com/content/woodexpo/


After working as a trained and certified carpenter, Tommy MacDonald attended North Bennet Street School to further develop his skills as a woodworker and learn the fine art of furniture making. He has been featured in numerous publications and his furniture has been exhibited in a number of shows. It is this love of furniture making that inspired him to create WoodExpo. 

Be sure to stop by to hear guest speakers invited by MacDonald. These expert furniture designers and makers will be doing live bench-side technique demonstrations.  The speakers are Allan Breed, Steve Brown, Glen G. Guarino, and Philip C. Lowe

In addition to hearing the speakers, this will be a wonderful opportunity to see a juried exhibition of furniture celebrating the craftsmanship of the American furniture artist. WoodExpo has invited North Bennet Street School, Furniture Institute of Massachusetts and the Breed School to show work by their students.
