Canadian Woodworks at the 2013 One of a kind show

Once again the Christmas One of a kind show at the Direct Energy Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada has come and gone! I always seem to find my self working very long days late into the evenings juggling my client orders with my booth pieces and planning. This year was no different, especially because I doubled the size of my booth to a 10’ x 20’. I decided to apply what i’ve learned from previous shows to improve my setup/takedown and organization of my handmade furniture.

This year I built my entire booth inside my work show, I built hard walls which I painted white, and numbered for easy take down and setup. I also made a major change to a vinyl “hardwood” looking floor, thankfully it came in just days before the show. To put the floor down was quick and easy just unroll and apply double sided carpet tape. It worked and looked great!

With all my pieces completed it was time for the move in, I spent the morning loading my pieces into the trailer knowing I would just have to unload in a few hours to begin the setup….. this is going to be a long day I thought.
