Can’t Attend Woodworking in America? Here’s the Next Best Thing

Even if you can’t get to the upcoming Woodworking in America 2011 conference, you don’t have to miss out on learning from some of the top-notch speakers who will be sharing their experience and knowledge there. And even if you are attending or need just one more reason to make up your mind and register, listen up!

We’ve assembled a collection of  DVDs, a digital book and CDs from nine WIA instructors and bundled them into a “Woodworking in America Value Pack” that you can snatch for $99.90. Sold separately, these would retail for $225. But be warned, there’s a limited number of these kits left and more than half of the original 100 are gone.  It’s solid lineup woodworking info – click on the links for each to find out more about the individual products – but to take advantage of the special price when you buy all of them, click here:

Six DVDs include David Charlesworth’s “Hand Tool Techniques Part I: Plane Sharpening”; “17th Century New England Carving” by Peter Follansbee; “The Joinery Challenge” with Ron Herman; “Cheating at Handcut Dovetails” by Glen Huey; Brian Boggs “Drawknives, Spokeshaves and Travishers: A Chairmakers Tool Kit”; and Charles Bender’s “Cabriole Legs Simplified.”

For your digital bookshelf you’ll get the  comprehensive “Handplane Essentials” in PDF format by Christopher Schwarz.

And rounding out the Value Pack are collections of articles by Adam Cherubini on CD, “The Arts & Mysteries of Handtools.” These originally appeared in Popular Woodworking Magazine starting with Adam’s first column in April 2005 through August 2009. And finally, you’ll get a selection of 13 articles plus a narrated slide show by Robert W. Lang on the CD “Design Better Mortise-&-Tenon Joints.”

Plus, if you’ve been sitting on the fence about actually making the trip to Cincinnati to take in the whole conference, you can still get the expired Early Bird WIA full conference rate when you buy the WIA Value Pack – that’s a $50 savings on the current full-conference registration price (you’ll be sent a special code in your confirmation e-mail when you place your Value Pack order).
