It’s hard to believe, but the first ever Fine Woodworking Live event is almost here! August 2-5, 2012 at The State University of New York at New Paltz, located just two hours north of New York City.
The three-day conference is being billed as an opportunity for woodworkers of all levels and interests to enjoy a range of sessions created specifically for this event.
Friday and Saturday will each start with a general session, followed by three complete small-group sessions on topics by each expert. On Sunday, a range of additional sessions will be offered for specific concentrations on detailed areas of interest.
There’s even a special event planned for Saturday night. Nick Offerman, star of NBC’s “Parks and Recreation” and a die-hard woodworker, will be the guest speaker at the Banquet dinner. But as of this posting, all the tickets to this event may already have been snatched up, so check with the event before making plans to attend.
Of course one of the highlights at any event where woodworkers from around the country or even around the world will be attending is the appearance of a vendor marketplace!
Fine Woodworking has invited a small group of top-notch retailers to be a part of this power-packed event. Lee Valley, Lie-Nielsen, as well as other vendors will be on hand to demonstrate their latest products, answer questions, and give tips.
If you’re planning on attending I’d love to hear about your experience. Unfortunately, due to a busy work schedule I won’t be able to make it this year, but I’m already marking my calendar for next year’s event even though nothing has been planned yet!
To hear more about the event from Fine Woodworking Magazine’s very own Editor Asa Christiana visit my previous post from back in March of this year “Fine Woodworking Live Event The Interview” when Asa joined me to talk about all the highlights and classes attendees will be enjoying over the weekend.
