The Philadelphia Invitational Furniture Show will be held March 23-25, 2012, at a new location at the 23rd Street Armory in Philadelphia.
The Armory is a medieval castle-like structure with natural light to compliment the show's theme of "Invest in Beauty." The beneficiary of the 2012 preview party/auction will be CERF+, an organization that supports crafts people in times of need. David Rago of "Antiques Roadshow," will be the guest auctioneer and commentator.

Realizing the dream of being able to economically build custom furniture on a mass scale.
CNC router manufacturer Thermwood set up a furniture-making operation in its own plant to test its cell manufacturing techniques.
This year's NeoCon was an affirming experience.
Q: We are having a problem with shrinkage. We make furniture, but someone else sells and delivers it. This person claims he did everything correctly, including opening the furniture wrapping (we wrapped the furniture with shrink-wrap and it was fairly well sealed) and letting it acclimate to the house climate. When the customer moved in, they said the furniture looked really wonderful, but within a week, it started to warp, open joints and crack in a few places. We are so careful to keep our plant at 40 percent RH and check the MC of the lumber. This is frustrating! Can you help?
Lean manufacturing helps furniture maker expand quickly.
