Are You Coming to Handworks?




The Handworks show is right around the corner. Are you coming? If not I would seriously consider it. I will say that this is going to be one of the best hand tool events in the country. All you have to do is go to Handworks website and check out everyone that is going to be there. Its going to be a wonderful time. The event is being held in Amana Iowa, May 15-16. 

There will be almost every handtool maker there from around the country and even some from overseas. If guys are coming all the way from Australia to sell their tools, I think its worth a little drive across the country to come see the event!

I don’t know if there are any tickets left, but Don Williams is putting together the most amazing display of the incredible Studley Tool Chest. This is probably a once in a lifetime chance to see the chest in person. And it happens to be on the same weekend about 20 miles away in nearby Cedar Rapids. 

We will be there sharing the furniture shop with Mary May, Mike Siemsen, Isaac Blackburn and a few others. I will be demonstrating and most likely making a dovetailed box. I plan to bring along my “Roses” table to display so if you have not had a chance to see it, then come by!

I can’t wait till the show, I think its going to be great! 

See you all there!
