AMANA, Iowa- SAVE THE DATE! Midwest’s Greatest Wood Show, Woodfest sponsored by the Amana Arts Guild, returns for its fifth year to the Amana RV Park and Events Center August 22-24, 2014 with two major additions. The three-day wood show is adding a Tool Swap Meet and Wood Crafting Seminars to the over 50 wood crafting exhibitors from throughout Iowa and the Midwest.


The Tool Swap is open to all who have any kind of tools for sale or trade or are looking for that missing tool for their collection. Details and applications for displaying, selling or swapping tools can be obtained by emailing, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Event coordinator, RC Eichacker says, “There are many who no longer use or have need for good tools in their homes and shops. There are still many others who are looking for a secondhand item to meet their current need, skill level or project completion.


The 45 minute professional wood working subjects will include skill techniques as well as demonstrations of new and innovative equipment. As an introduction, all are free and open to the visiting public. Plans call for each seminar to be presented twice each day of the festival.


Special featured wood crafter of the Woodfest is Mr. and Mrs. John Woodhouse of Delhi, Iowa with their unique 3D artistry of barn scenes. Indoor and outdoor demonstrations of crafting techniques are ongoing throughout the early fall festival.
