Texas Furniture Makers Show - 2006

Time again for the annual Texas Furniture Makers Show. As in years pass, KACC has found three talented people to judge the show: Amy Devers, Christi Farley, ASID, and Jim Wallace. KACC is offering show participants a ‘review’ session with the judges on Sunday, November 5, 2006. This is a unique opportunity for furniture makers to gain insight into the work displayed. I can not emphasis enough the value of this session, it is truly unique. This session is open only to show participants.

The show is starting earlier this year: October 26, to December 2, 2006. The reception and awards ceremony will be from 6 to 8 pm on Saturday, November 4, 2006. That is the same day Karl Muench and I will be giving another class on furniture design: "The Art and Function of Furniture". Howard Hale will also be offering a finishing class the same day: "Essential Furniture Finishing Techniques".

The winners from the 2003 show can be seen here: And the work of David A. Petersen, a former show winner (2003 President’s Award), can be seen here:

If you find yourself in or near the beautiful town of Kerrville in November, you owe it to your self to see this show.
