Each year, the Show brings together more than 100 U.S. and international artisans and dealers, including a number of I.G.M.A. Artisans and Fellows. They offer collectors unique, well-crafted 1-inch, 1/2-inch, and 1/4-inch scale miniatures from around the world.

At the Show - Handcrafted Furniture & Collectibles

Dr. Ken Byers, Shaker Works West, has been a dealer at Good Sam since the mid-1990s. He specializes in historically accurate 1:12 scale Shaker/Country room boxes and furniture, plus much more. Here are a few of his museum quality handcrafted antique and modern tools and workshops. While Dr. Byers owns a large number of tools for crafting miniatures, he says, "I probably use the old Exacto knife with #11 blade for 75% of my work." Look for his table at this year's show. mekendar@pacbell.net, www.shakerworkswest.com
