Christopher Schwarz just posted on his Lost Art Press blog about his latest parlor trick: “Making a Sawbench in 60 Minutes or Less (or More).” He’ll be doing this on stage (I believe it’s a metaphorical stage, but he’s tall enough to make it seem as if he’s on a riser, at least) at Woodworking in America 2012, in both locations. And after each session, he’ll be giving the freshly built sawbench to a lucky audience member.

And if you haven’t yet signed up, it’s not too late. We’ll be taking registrations on site at the Pasadena Convention Center (Oct. 12-14), and you can still sign up for the Greater Cincinnati event (Nov. 2-4) on the conference web site.

Hmmm…I’d best start working on a woodworking party trick for Cincinnati. Let’s see…I’ll bet I can destroy a sawbench in 5 minutes, or less, if I can get my hands on one of those nifty Wetterlings Axes Lie-Nielsen just posted about on
