WIA_toast-1620The full 2014 site should be live any day now, and on it, you’ll find the schedule, sessions descriptions, speaker bios and much more – and we’ll be adding to the list of Marketplace vendors as they come in. (Visit the site now to sign up for the newsletter to stay in the loop on early bird deadlines, registration information, etc.)

Registration will open in just a couple weeks…to give you a little bit of time to peruse the sessions and speakers, and arrange for your Sept 12-14 vacation.

When: Sept. 12-14, 2014
Where: Winston-Salem, N.C.
Why: Because it’s an entire weekend of woodworking fun (and learning).

    I plan to attend this year and am excited for so many of the presentations!

    Ron Herman will still be missed. I hope Pop Wood will consider returning him to the lineup next year!

    I thought I read on Twitter or tweeter or tooter that the squirrels ate him.

    It’s a shame about Chuck. He would be a no-brainier for the Chairmaker’s Roundtable. He’s not only has a lot of building experience but he’s also well read on the topic.

    The “related post” above on Tricks of the Trade & End Grain Contests – Win a Copy of ‘Handsaw Essentials’ is dated Oct 9, 2013 and submissions were due by November 2013. Is there a new contest with new dates or what?

  • Periodcraftsmen

    Shocked to see that Chuck, Will and Phil are not on the chair roundtable.

  • wessmith

    Sweet! That’s just up I-85 from me.

    “Building & Using a Chevalet..” I am so there

  • pmac

    Any idea of the actual date that registration will open?

    PS. Vacations are easier to plan before the kids are back in school.
