Ever wish that you could chat with expert woodworkers and get advice from their experiences? How about take classes to hone your woodworking skills? Do you wish that you could hold the tools that you are considering purchasing? You’re in luck! I am pleased to announce not one, but two tool shows coming up this fall to give you the opportunity for all of these and more! Regardless of which side of the country you are located on, there is a show coming near you soon.
The first show is Woodworking in America or WIA. WIA will be held this year in Winston-Salem, North Carolina on September 12-14. If you were hoping to see Blue Spruce Toolworks there, come either Friday or Saturday. I look forward to talking to some of you face to face. Please stop by my booth to test out our chisels, mallets, and marking tools. There will be many great speakers and classes offered, so register soon!
The second show, on the other side of the country in Oakland, California, is the Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event held at The Crucible. It will be held the next weekend, September 19-20. This is a smaller show, so there will be more individual attention for questions and conversation. This event is free to attend, so I hope to see many of you there.
I always look forward to tool shows because I get to meet all of you in person. It is a privilege to be able to shake your hand and hear about your woodworking endeavors. If you know that you are coming, I would love to know! Feel free to comment what show(s) you hope to attend and what you are most excited about. And, as always, make sure to subscribe to keep up to date on all things about Your Finest Work.
