WTH does AWFS stand for? Glad you asked! It stands for the Association of Woodworking & Furnishing Suppliers, which started in 1911. They are “a national association with international membership that includes manufacturers and distributors of machines, hardware, lumber, upholstery materials, bedding, wood products and other suppliers to furniture and cabinet manufacturers.” Their job is making a Disney World of woodworking power tools, getting woodworkers drooling, and ensuring that transactions occur between your wallet and their attendees!
It was a huge show this year in Las Vegas, and there’s tons of coverage by all the woodworking outlets you know and love. We researched the heck out of the internet to bring you this AWFS 2009 coverage roundup. ENJOY!
