Whether whittling a branch with a knife or using intricate tools, many Canadians use woodworking as a form of relaxation, with the added bonus of creating something useful and/or beautiful. The Woodstock Woodworking Show, Canada’s oldest consumer woodworking show celebrates everything to do with wood for hobbyist and professionals at the Woodstock Fairgrounds (875 Nellis St., ON N4S 4C6). The Show returns for its 30h year from October 2-4, 2015.
