This fall, our magazine is sponsoring the first-ever weekend conference devoted to hand tools and learning to use them.

We’re calling it the Woodworking in America conference, and we’ll be bringing together the country’s best hand-tool woodworkers and manufacturers for a symposium in Berea, Ky., on Nov. 14-16.

There will be more than 40 short classes on tools and techniques during the long weekend, plus a marketplace where toolmakers can display (and sell) their wares, social events with the demonstrators and toolmakers and more.

So who is going to be there? Here’s the list of people who have agreed to teach seminars during Woodworking in America as of this date (with more to come):

Roy Underhill: Known as “St. Roy” to the legion of fans who watch “The Woodwright’s Shop” on PBS, Roy worked at Colonial Williamsburg and then launched his show about traditional hand tools.
