Frank Klausz to Speak at WIA 2012 Midwest

We’re pleased to announce that Frank Klausz has joined our cast of expert presenters for Woodworking in America 2012 Midwest (at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center, Nov. 2-4).

Later this week – possibly even later today – at WoodworkingInAmerica.com, you’ll be able to see the full line-up of presenters, the schedule and the class descriptions for both the Midwest event and the Pasadena, Calif., WIA conference (Oct. 12-14 at the Pasadena Convention Center)…all of them, that is, except Frank’s, because we’ve not yet determined what he’ll be teaching.

Frank has spoken at previous WIA Conferences on dovetails, advanced dovetails, mortise-and-tenon joints and more – but if you know Frank’s work, you know he knows a great deal about pretty much every aspect of woodworking. He is, after all, the owner of Frank’s Cabinet Shop in New Jersey, which since 1972 has specialized in fine furniture reproductions and custom architectural fixtures (you can see some of his work on his web site’s gallery page, and read more about him on his Biography page). And if you’ve ever heard one of Frank’s talks, you know he can make just about anything fun, funny and interesting (not to mention educational) – so you know the possibilities are endless.

So without further ado: If you could hear Frank Klausz speak on any woodworking topic, what would it be? We invite you to tell us by posting a comment below.
