Crowds teem in the halls of the International Centre in Toronto, ON, during day two of the Woodworking Machinery & Supply Expo.


MISSISSAUGA, ON – A solid start to the Woodworking Machinery & Supply Expo was followed by an even stronger second day.

A steady stream of woodworkers flowed into the supply and machinery halls of the International Centre beginning at 10 a.m. By noon, the show was teeming with attendees attracted to the exhibits to view, touch and get answers to their questions about the wide range of products on display.

Attendees to the Woodworking Machinery & Supply Expo listen to a seminar on wood finishing.

Friday got off to a bright and early start for many of the woodworking professionals who attended a half-day workshop, “Leaning & Greening Your Wood Finishing Operations.” The educational session was organized by the UBC Centre for Advanced Wood Processing and sponsored by Cefla Finishing Canada.

Back on the show floor, CNC Automation continued to nest parts on a Thermwood router. The parts were further processed and then assembled as cabinets destined to be donated to Habitat for Humanity.
