Our last Vendor Profile before this year’s Fall Woodworker’s Fair is Neil Brown, the new owner of Woodcraft of Allentown. Woodcraft will have a booth at our Fall Woodworker’s Fair for the first time in several years.
Woodcraft of Allentown has been the premier source of woodworking tools and products in Allentown for many years. For 6 years, 3 years as Woodcraft’s manager, Neil Brown ran the register, stocked tools and supplies and did what was needed to keep Woodcraft running. A woodworker of 27 years, he became the store’s newest owner on March 17, 2017!
Originally a woodworker who made furniture, he started turning 11 years ago and currently teaches both woodworking and turning at Woodcraft. A fan of Norm Abrams of This Old House and The Yankee Workshop, Neil credits his love of all things wood with his decision to purchase Woodcraft. When asked about his vision for the future, he says that he would like to get the younger generation involved in woodworking.
Neil and one of his assistants will be demonstrating a tabletop CNC router for the small wood shop during each day of the Fair. Woodcraft and Bailey Wood Products both promote traditional and modern woodworking techniques with the use of CNC machines and lasers.
If you, or someone you know, would like to learn more about woodworking, please call email email@example.com or call (610) 351-2966 for a list of classes and times.
Bailey Wood Products congratulates Neil Brown on taking ownership of Woodcraft of Allentown and on the recent Grand Reopening of his store on September 23rd, on Lehigh Street in Allentown, PA. Bailey is looking forward to seeing him and his staff at the Fall Woodworker’s Fair this year.
For those who have never been to the Bailey Wood Products Fall Woodworker’s Fair, or for those that want to reminisce, we have included a short video of the 4th Annual Fall Fair, by David Schucker.
For the upcoming Fall Woodworker’s Fair on Saturday, October 21st and Sunday, October 22nd, Bailey Wood Products is highlighting some of the new Vendors who will be showcasing the products of their woodworking talents this year.
The son of a woodworker who was a past president of the local woodworking club in the late 1980’s, Jason Zeiner may very well have “sawdust for blood”. Jason made his first woodcarving, a bust of a horse head as a Christmas gift for his grandparents, a gift that they kept their entire lives, and which is in Jason’s keeping since their passing. That carving is a reminder of where his own love of woodworking started.
Currently employed as a full-time cabinet maker, Jason started making pipes during the winter of 2015, after spending time with a friend who smoked a pipe. The aroma of the tobacco invoked fond memories of a time when his great uncle would come in from the fields and sit on the porch, light his pipe, and talk to his little dog and to the young Jason. About six months after smoking his first pipe, Jason also took up pipe making.
While a number of hardwoods are suitable for pipe making, Jason primarily uses Briarwood that he purchases from overseas. When asked what his favorite part of pipe making is, Jason told us that “seeing the finished product”, and “getting to see the stunning grain as he turns and carves the shape.” He says, he often thinks “it’s so cool that I get to discover what God hid in this piece of wood that I get from the other side of the world.” For the second year in a row, Jason is making the pipe of the year for New Tobacco Village of Whitehall, PA.
If you are interested in speaking with Jason in person, please visit us at the Fall Woodworker’s Fair. Jason Zeiner Pipes will have pipes for sale at the Fair and is also taking orders for custom-made pipes for the holiday season. Bailey Wood Notes is pleased to feature some photos of Jason’s work, and has included some testimonials from his customers. To see more, visit @jzpipes on Facebook.
“It’s beautiful, but more important (the) first bowl was a real pleasure to smoke. Don’t want to speak too soon, want to smoke a few more bowls, but may be the best smoking pipe I have.” J. Quaresimo
“Can’t emphasize the quality of this piece enough. Perfect draw and fantastic aesthetic. Thanks Jason!” D. Austin
In anticipation of the 5th Annual Fall Woodworker’s Fair on October 21 and 22nd, Bailey Wood Products is pleased to introduce some of our new vendors. This week’s vendor is Josh Schmidt of LivingOriginal® with Schmidt’s Furniture Design Company®
As a Bailey customer who avidly collects live edge walnut in anticipation of his next project, Josh is also one of our youngest vendors. It is always a pleasure to see succeeding generations bring their own vision to the wood shop. To say that Schmidt’s furniture imparts an element of originality to anyone’s home would be an understatement. Combining wood with industrial metal elements elevates his furnishings beyond the traditional craft into a modern art form. Josh not only coaxes the inherent beauty out of the wood he chooses for each piece of furniture, he designs and fabricates all the metal components as well.
Previously employed in a cabinet making shop, Josh loves the challenge and complexity of each new project that his original furniture designs require. Schmidt’s Furniture Design Company® primarily does work on a custom order basis. Please stop by his booth at the Fall Woodworker’s Fair for an introduction to the Industrial Design style of furnishings created by Josh Schmidt.
To see more of Josh Schmidt’s furniture, please visit his Facebook page @schmidtsfurnituredesign
