WIA – A Different Point of View

The Woodworking in America conference came to a close more than a week ago. We came down from the high of the weekend and pushed through what Matt Vanderlist (of Matt’s Basement Workshop) calls the “mourning phase.” Now we can reflect on the great lessons learned and the incredible memories made.

Below I have rounded up some great videos and posts from a variety of bloggers. Take a look and experience the conference from another person’s perspective.
