Would Works on show at Offerman Woodshop’s Pleasure Faire

Today Would Works participated in Offerman Workshop’s inaugural Pleasure Faire.

This fantastic event offered a cornucopia of inspiration for woodworking enthusiasts and those who appreciate hand made things. It featured handcrafted wooden products by Los Angeles outfits Offerman Woodshop, Allied Woodshop, Wheeler Made, Ethan Nicolle, Brawley Made. Non local representation was on offer from MTB Woodworks, Gilded Objects, HPLHS and Lie Nielsen.

We took our entire product range to the show. They were a real hit, with the Cocktail Boards proving most popular.

The event culminated in a book reading by Nick Offerman for his new book “Good Clean Fun”. Nick read excerpts from each chapter featuring the OWS crew. His witty and charming anecdotes relating to the members of OWS members were lots of fun.
