Wish I Lived Near Rochester, N.Y.
For those of you who made it to the Cincinnati Lie-Nielsen Travelin’ Hand Tool event, you know how great it was to get your hands on a huge range of Lie-Nielsen tools, meet the folks behind the name, and listen to Chris Schwarz wax prolific about hammers…and what they do to planes. (If you missed the show, become a fan of the Popular Woodworking Facebook page and you can see pictures).
Well, Lie-Nielsen is taking the show to Rochester, N.Y. on July 10 and 11, at the Rochester Woodworker’s Society (noon-6 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday). In addition to hands-on training from Lie-Nielsen folk, the Rochester Woodworkers Guild will be giving demonstrations. (And by the by, every penny Chris Schwarz makes off his DVD sales is donated to a woodworking charity.) Admission is free. Visit the events page at lie-nielsen.com for more information.
