It sounds like you are affiliated with the show so forgive if you aren't. Is Anderson just providing the space or are they participating?

Last time I was there, they had a special order of 3/4" wenge faced ply. That was cool and terrifying to see.

No affiliation besides being a frequent buyer and an occasional seller.  Anderson just provides the space.  I'm not aware of any sale they have.  In fact I don't even think they're open on weekends normally.  I think you can buy small stuff but I doubt you can buy things like plywood because the entrance blocked.  John, the owner does sell some of his own tools occasionally but that's the extent of their involvement in terms of selling that I know of.  They hold the shows 3-4 places in socal and the businesses just allow them to set up in their parking lot.  Laura, listed on the post, is one of the organizers.  I've personally only been to the one in culver city and pasadena shows.

They're prices are a littler higher than most but have really good quality.  There are closer lumberyards to me so I don't get up there often unless I can't find it anywhere close to me.
