    Artistry In Wood Show Dayton Ohio, Final show

    The Dayton Woodcarvers "Artistry In Wood Show" is going to have it last show this year after 28 years. Said that the woodcarvers putting on the show are getting older and no longer able to volunteer. No younger woodworkers to take there place.
    I went to every show each year for I bet 25 years. Sad to see it go. It was a great show.

    Any guess what it was that the older generation were interested in woodworking but not the younger?

    That's a doggone shame Dave.
    Maybe the younger generation is more interested in using CNC to carve. I saw a demo of that once.

    All craft is cyclic. We drove a big industry when baby boomers got interested in working with their hands in the early 70s. Back to nature kind of thing. Before that, machinery was basically for the construction trade. Now boomers are slowing and about the only thing they are driving is assisted living and nursing home construction. Younger people are heading back into the cities, and a shop space is just impossible.

    Rustic? Well, no. That was not my intention!

    The show started out at the Hara arena then for years moved to the Expo Center at the Dayton air show. It is now located at The Roberts Center I-71 and rt 68 near Wilmington ohio. https://www.robertscentre.com/
