We'll be using our FLEXset to build windows like we would at an Alpine class- if you're curious about setups, techniques, and all the stages of advanced solid wood joinery, from shaping to gluing and clamping, you should definitely come see what Alpine's about. Past Alpiners will be coming by to talk shop, catch up with old friends, and enjoy the experience all over again- we can't wait to see all of you again!
Many of our performance-engineered products will be coming to the show with us. Participate in a live demo of our renowned Knot Filler, take a Barth Multi-Press or Lift Table for a test drive, and see our world-class shaper cutters in action. We'll be debuting a new exciting addition to our line of standard cutters at the show, so stay tuned to see what we have in store- it's one of our most-requested engineering innovations.
Our new CutterShare program means there's no longer any cost barrier to using the best shaper cutters in the world. You might have heard about it online- at the show can see our award-winning box first-hand, see the tools run, experience Uncompromising Craftsmanship for yourself.
If you've got joinery questions about your next project. We've helped shops across the continent build just about every kind of solid wood project you can think of successfully; chances are, we can help you with your challenges. If you're looking for answers to questions about door or window hardware and styles, sourcing cladding or gasketing, or exploring the process of thermal simulation and certification for your design, we're the right people to talk with.
Our team is bringing a solid mix of proven favorites and exciting new products to IWF this year.
Why tell you about the engineering and precision of our cutters, when we can show you? Alpine Workshops instructor Joe Calhoon will be running our cutters every day of the show, and demonstrating the fundamentals of solid wood joinery and window/door processing. Come by and talk shop! Get answers to your questions and challenges on squaring, shaping, gluing, and clamping your solid wood projects- a taste of the complete Alpine Workshop experience.
