Who Do You Most Want to See at WIA?


While I already have a couple of (virtual) handshake agreements with presenters for WIA 2015 (and a long list of potential presenters), next week (after the February 2015 issue is to the printer), I’ll be diving deep into the programming for next year’s conference (which is Sept. 25-27 in Kansas City, Mo.). And you can help.

• What one presenter would you most like to see?
• What one topic would be of most interest?

Please leave comments below!

    Drew Langsner, Marc Adams, Don Weber talking blacksmithing for woodworkers, anybody from the North Bennett Street School. A hands on sketchup course at the intermediate level (bring your own laptop). King Roy, of course; I cant get enough of that guy. Al Breed on carving and period pieces in general.

    I second the Greene and Greene mentioned by TRS as well a Arts and Crafts style in general Perhaps Titebond could explain the intricacies of using cyanoacrylate.

    I would like the Woodworking in America event to be formatted differently, fewer classes at one time, presumably to help the ability to see more of the classes, probably extend the time a day or so.

    Don Weber, Mike Wenzloff, John Economaki, Curtis Buchanan, Peter Ross, Tod Herrli, Don Williams, and Jeff Miller.

    Frank Strazza would be nice. He’s got a wide portfolio and the standard of work is excellent.

  6. miathet

    Veritas engineers on developing a modern take on old had tools. Like how and why plastic backed saws. BTW I own one and use it.

    That first Northern Kentucky exit sign, just before I go over to the convention center. Well you did ask.

    My wish list includes Curtis Buchanan, Peter Follansbee, Drew Langsner, Pete Galbert, and Kerry Pierce. Are you seeing a pattern here? These are some of my favorite authors and woodworkers (chair builders).
    Hope to see you all there! Kevin

        UNPLUGGED French polishing Krenov-style birdhouses using only responsibly harvested cut nails and dainty workbenches with Zylss vices at each corner to manage a collection of home-made sable and yak hair brushes.

  9. jeberle

    Matt Bickford and Ron Hock and that crazy guy who spends his summer’s on an island off the coast of Canada unplugged
