The 2019 Artistry in Wood show is cutting no corners in presenting the best show possible to be a lasting memory of the distinguished history and contributions to woodcarving and woodworking since 1981. This will be the last year for the show so please join us in making this a memorable event at the end of the journey of Artistry in Wood and at its best.
This show is one of the leading woodworking shows in the country. With about 200 exhibitors, it includes carving, turning, furniture, toys, and Intarsia. Enjoy visiting with fellow artists, shopping tool and supply vendors, watching kids make simple woodworking projects, shopping for holiday gifts, browsing patterns and books, and more!
Although the focus of the show is carving, scrollers are increasingly well represented. The Dayton Carvers welcome scrollers, Intarsia, turners, and furniture makers. Dimensional Intarsia and carving have so much in common.
Compete in the contest: Artistry in Wood hosts a prestigious competition that includes several categories perfect for scrollers (toys, clocks, marquetry, intarsia, and a general scroll sawing category). Although you must deliver your work in person (no mail-in entries), you do not have to be an exhibitor to compete in the woodworking and scrolling categories.

Marianne, Stephen, and I are excited to have a booth among all the fantastic carvings. I'll have many Intarsia pieces on display along with some items for sale. I will have a demonstration at 1:00 on Sunday the 13th.
Roberts Centre, located at Exit 50 of Interstate 71 and state route 68, provides plenty of free parking, food concessions during both days of the show as well as restaurant Max and Erma on site along with the Holiday Inn available for lodging.
