This is a special store event for members only now on SUNDAY MAY 1. Please read below:

10:30 - 11:30 - Brian Leary owner of Lakeshore lumber. Operating a successful wholesale and retail wood business in NY state comes with a few splinters attached. Brian will discuss the things that were successful and things that didn't work out too well. Of course, he considers himself knowledgeable on different species of wood, but he has needed much more than that in order to survive in the wood business. Let Brian share some of these experiences with you on Sunday morning May 1. Lakeshore Hardwoods is a hidden candy shop for woodworkers and whether you are just beginning or you are a seasoned veteran, if your passion is working with wood, this is the place for you!

11:30 - 12:30 - Open house with pizza and soft drinks

12:30 - 1:30 - Demonstration of Bush oil by owner and president Bill Bush - William Bush, a master craftsman, has been designing and building custom furniture for the past 45 years. His creations make use of many media. These include wood, stone, glass, and metal. Mr Bush will prep and finish a piece live for you. You will gain a good understanding of abrasives and oil finishes. Learn to identify areas that will need to be addressed prior to applying the finish. Understand the reason for choosing an oil and topcoat.
