Bailey Wood Products, of 441 Mountain Road Kempton,will be hosting the first WoodworkersFair on Nov. 2 and 3 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Free of charge to the public, this event will showcase work by local woodcrafters.
The WoodCraft Store of Allentown is this years featured vendor and will demonstrate innovative woodworking tools . The PA Hardwoods council will also participate and will bring the Woodmobile out for the fair. There will be an exhibit by Hawk Mountain Sanctuary, and a Long Bow Archery demonstration by Justin Steinmetz of Temple. The Boy Scouts will make sure nobody goes hungry or thirsty by selling food and drink to fair goers. Fine woodcrafts, specialty lumbers and other wood related items will be available for purchase or custom order.
Woodworkers, many of who are Bailey customers, will display and sell their fine woodwork in individual booths. Woodcrafts offerings will range from full-sized furniture to scaled miniatures, drum sets, cutting boards to elegant serve ware, toys to keepsakes items; all of which would make perfect gifts for the upcoming holidays.
Ray Winkler from the Woodcraft Store in Allentown will bring a selection of woodworking tools. Periodic demonstrations of these tools should entice and inform both professional woodworkers and novices as alike. Raffles of various woodworking related items will also go on throughout the day. Staff from Bailey’s will be on hand to answer questions about different wood species and will gladly sell or order specialty lumber for projects both large and small.
Hawk Mountain Sanctuary will have a photographic exhibit showing some of the improvements they have made to the sanctuary visitors center over the course of the last year. These improvements feature Thermo Wood purchased at Bailey’s. A sanctuary representative will be on hand to talk about the work of the sanctuary, the new Erma Broun Education Center, and how the site specific needs of the sanctuary were addressed by Bailey Wood Products.
Archery enthusiasts, as well as woodcrafters, will have the opportunity to speak with Justin Steinmetz about his work and the history of longbows. Not only will they be able to see his beautiful and accurate long bows, adults and youth over twelve will be invited to try one out at the archery range set up on the property.
Members of Boy Scout Troup 104 will be serving food and drink at concessions stand, and some boy scouts will be preparing Christmas Cards for our military troops. Bailey Wood Products Owner Jeff Schucker has been involved with the boy scouts for years as Scoutmaster and currently serves as a committee member. Proceeds from food sales will benefit the Boy Scouts.
