A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of setting up a space at
Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event at the
Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking in
Manchester, CT and it was an absolute blast. I met a ton of
customers and was totally swamped with sharpening work, and
it was awesome. I sharpened up a bunch of saws and had a
great time… the first day I was so busy I didn’t even get to
play with any of the L-N tools!!!
Well I’m very excited to tell you that Deneb from
Lie-Nielsen asked me to return, and so I’ll be at the
upcoming show in Beverly, MA at The Furniture Institute of
Massachusetts on Friday December 2nd. You can check out the
details on the Lie-Nielsen site, and you can learn more
Furniture Institute at their site.
I’ll bring along my whole sharpening rig so I can sharpen
saws on site…though I ask that you limit it to one or two
saws (last time people were bringing three and four and I
was turning others away!!!)
Here are some more pics from the event. And thanks to the
incomparable Jeff Burks from CarpentryArchive.org for his
outstanding photo documentary offerings!
I did have a chance on the second day to chat with Matt
Bickford Planes and was absolutely impressed with
his talent and passion…
I’m also going to be teaching some saw building and saw
sharpening classes at the CT Valley School in the winter
months…their new schedule is up now with the details.
I should also mention that the following day after the
Lie-Nielsen event I will be at the annual Shady Lea Mill
open house in North Kingstown, Rhode Island on Saturday
December 3rd from Noon to 5pm. In addition to housing the
Shady Lea Woodworking School, the mill is home to
dozens of artisans and craftsman…. check it out.
Looking forward to seeing more of you there!
