The Huge Festool Roadshow is Coming to Visit!  

Sat Apr 29 10:00 AM

Tools for Working Wood is excited to announce the hosting of the Festool Roadshow on Saturday, April 29th from 10 AM - 2:30 PM at our showroom, 112 26th Street, Brooklyn.

Festool is sending up a giant trailer full of tools and demonstration workstations. Try out the tools and get all of your questions answered by dedicated Festool trainers. This also a great opportunity to meet with our own knowledgeable TFWW sales staff, who themselves use Festool to construct our display cases and furniture. Talk with them about service, availability, speed of delivery and their own experiences using Festool.

Come check out the new tools for 2017, including the new knockdown Domino connectors, and discover why Festool saws, sanders, drills and dust extraction systems have set the standard globally. See how they can make your work more efficient, more accurate and cleaner.

Come and see the Tools For Working Wood difference!

We have loads of food, beverages and gift bags for attendees!!!

Parking is available under the expressway. The subway (R train to 25th Street in Brooklyn) is only 2 1/2 blocks away. We're not far from the Long Island Rail Road Atlantic terminal.

By the way, we know that a lot of you are coming from some distance. Whether you come alone or bring your family, Green-Wood Cemetery is three blocks away; the entrance is on 25th Street and 5th Avenue, and the cemetery, which was set up to be park-like, should be looking lovely. It is considered one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the US. For any members of your family who aren't interested in Festool, it would be a wonderful walk and some coffee and pastry at the bakery across the street from the gate. Rossman's - the best vegetable stand in Brooklyn is at our corner. A few blocks north is Liberty View Plaza, with a Bed Bath and Beyond and other stores. A few more blocks north in Industry City, with its fancy food court and maybe the Brooklyn Flea. After the Festool show there are many things to do in Brooklyn for the whole family from going to Junior's for cheesecake, visiting the botanical garden, zoo, or carousel in Prospect Park, or a museum, and then having a fine dinner at any one of loads of places (ask us where - we have opinions!). A trek to Brighton Beach on a Saturday evening can result in some awesome food shopping and fine Eastern European dinners.

Cost: FREE.
Where: At our showroom at 112 26th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11232

Wood Finishing with Lockwood Dyes   

Sat May 06 12:00 PM Instruction with Jesse Schiffrin & Herb Schiffrin of W.D. Lockwood & Co.

Staining your wood furniture can make it look nicer, match existing pieces, even out its color, make it look like more expensive wood, give it a dramatic new look with bright colors, etc. If you’re curious about dye stains but worried about ruining your project, come to this demonstration. W.D. Lockwood is a NYC wood dye company that has been around since 1895, and sells a wide range of oil-based, alcohol-based, and water-based dyes. Take your wood finishing to a new level of creativity with the techniques that Jesse & Herb will show you.

We stock the entire range of W.D. Lockwood dyes here.

Parking is available in our driveway, near our driveway, and under the expressway. The subway (R train to 25th street in Brooklyn) is only 3 1/2 blocks away.
