Last Call for Early-bird Savings for WIA – Plus More Room in the Toolmaker's Dinner

We have some good news on the Woodworking in America “Toolmaker’s Dinner” front. We’ve decided to move the dinner to the Conference Marketplace , which means attendees will have the opportunity to tour the awesome Marketplace (60+ toolmakers and woodworking vendors!) on Thursday night, Sept. 30, before the Conference proper opens on Friday morning. And, that means we also have a lot more room, so if you weren’t able to register for the dinner and you want to, now you can!

All you have to do is open your confirmation e-mail, click on the link that reads “Click Here to View the Event Summary” and enter your confirmation number. Then you can modify your registration by adding the dinner (a $35 fee).

Yes, that means the Toolmaker’s Dinner folk won’t get to see the Popular Woodworking Magazine shop , but there really won’t be much in it anyway. We’re taking all our benches (and then some) and most of our tools and movable machines to the Conference, so the shop will be an empty shell with only a jointer, planer, cabinet saw and dust-collection system , that’s about it. Also, with the dinner at the center, it means there’s no need to secure transportation for a 16-mile trip up I-71 to our (empty) shop!

Plus, we’ve secured more space and rearranged session locations, and all “closed” blocks have been lifted. So, if you want to modify your schedule for the conference, follow the link directions above to do that, too. (But remember: You’re still free to go to whichever sessions you want, whether or not they appear on your schedule).

And of course, that means if you haven’t yet registered , which I recommend doing before 11:59 p.m. EST on August 2, when the $40 Early-bird savings ends , you can do so now and sign up for any class you want. Click here to register now.

But, we have only 26 spaces remaining. Once those 26 are gone, the 2010 Woodworking in America Conference (Oct. 1-3 in Greater Cincinnati) will be officially sold out. So if you haven’t already registered and want to, don’t wait.
