Fine Works In Wood Exhibition
In the nearly three decades since the Southern Alberta Woodworkers Society (SAWS) was formed, we have always tried to live up to the aims of the founders, that is, to promote fine woodwork in the areas of both design and execution. Part of that effort has been in the form of our biennial exhibitions.
