New York State Farm Show Demonstrations February 24-26, 2022
Members of the Woodworkers of Central New York returned to the Daniel Parrish Witter Agricultural Museum to demonstrate woodworking during the 2022 New York State Farm Show. The Woodworkers deviated from our "usual" demonstrations at the Museum with members using an electrified lathe and scrollsaw along with demos of hand carving, and hand tool use! Our treadle lathe used during the NYS Fair will be there.
This will be the third year the Friends opened the Museum during the annual Farm Show. This 92 year old building is traditionally open only during the New York State Fair. Despite the cold, wind, and occasional snow, we expect even more visitors this year. Many of our visitors in the past noted that they've been coming to the Fairgrounds for 50 years and never knew the building was there! The collection curators, the Friends of the Witter Museum, continue to update the exhibits. The former silo exhibit is gone from the center so you can now see the cabin and people can walk around easier.
Enjoy the photos galleries below. The first shows our participation, while the second shows the updated Museum and the crowds we had at times during the event.
