At the Woodworking in America Marketplace, you’ll find the biggest and best hand tool makers, power tool vendors and woodworking suppliers, all under one roof. It’s a unique opportunity for you to try out a huge variety of tools, talk with the maker and more.

The Marketplace also plays host to bonus WIA activities, including Door Prize drawings, informal Shop Talk discussions (check back for details) with event speakers and the Hand Tool Olympics – your chance to pit your skills against your fellow attendees for bragging rights.

NEW: Marketplace Happenings

Trade in for Tough at the 2013 Woodworking In America show!

During this year’s show, Gorilla Glue will trade you any used bottle of wood glue (any size, any brand) for a 2 oz. bottle of Original Gorilla Glue! Original Gorilla Glue is our toughest glue on planet earth. It’s incredibly strong and 100% waterproof polyurethane formula makes it ideal for woodworking projects that will be exposed to outdoor elements. It also works extremely well on oily, exotic woods, such as teak.

Stop by our booth to get your 2 oz. Gorilla Glue and visit our woodworking brand ambassador, Andy Brownell ( Throughout the show, he’ll be demonstrating Gorilla Glue on equally tough drawbore pegs to reinforce his mortise and tenon joinery on a gorgeous outdoor teak bench.

The promotion is open to registered attendees of the 2013 Woodworking in America show. Attendees MUST trade a new or used bottle of any brand wood glue to qualify. There can be any amount of glue in the used bottle. Only one “trade” permitted per person.

We’re looking forward to seeing you at the Woodworking in America show to Trade in for Tough!
