Woodworking Shows

Popular Woodworking Magazine presents the annual Woodworking in America conference (the first one was in Berea, Ky., in 2008). It’s a woodworking weekend packed with skill-building classes from some of the best names in woodworking (Roy Underhill, Christopher Schwarz, Frank Klausz, Curtis Buchanan, Paul Schurch and more!), aisles of top toolmakers in the Marketplace and social events where you can talk shop with fellow woodworkers.
