The countdown to Woodworking in America 2011 has entered the final weeks. With about a month left on the calendar before woodworkers from all over the country (and even FROM other countries) flock to Cincinnati Ohio for what has become for many, THE WOODWORKING EVENT OF THE YEAR, I wanted to share a few of my favorite moments from WIAs past.
I’ve been very privileged to be able to attend each year, and appreciate being invited back, so for those of you who can’t make it for what-ever reason I always try to get as much footage as possible to give you a little taste of the experience.
This whole week I’m re-posting links and footage from the last 3 years, along with a couple of videos of previously unseen content. While I’d love to post the entire length of the lectures, it’s not fair to the presenters and quite honestly that’s a lot of footage, so you’ll have to enjoy these short snippets. Hopefully you’ll be able to attend a conference in person, if not this year than maybe in upcoming years.
Today’s episode is the first of my previously unseen videos (actually the first snippet was seen, I’ve just re-edited it slightly) it’s from the very first Hand Tool Conference in Berea Kentucky 2008. These snippets of various lectures are a great example of audience participation and the wide range of amazing experts and topics the shows cover.
