Last week, I spent several days at the International Woodworking Fair down in Atlanta, Georgia. It was like many shows that I’ve been to … I found new products to look at, old friends to reconnect with and miles of aisles to wear down my shoe leather. But this year, there was something at the show that had been missing for a few years: a spirit of optimism. Although it was paired with a degree of caution, many folks I talked to spoke of better times to come, based on recent improvements in their business. Here is to better times and cool new woodworking products! I think we are all ready for both.
