Fine Woodworking New England — April 26 & 27

It has been a while since Fine Woodworking has held a live event, and we figured the best way to get back on track is with a free event hosted by Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking. The Fine Woodworking New England 2-day event in Manchester, Connecticut, will feature dozens of demonstrations by Frank Strazza, Steve Latta, Larissa Huff, Andrew Hunter, and many more. The show will also feature tool makers as well as an antique tool flea market.

We will have live scheduled demonstrations as well as ongoing demonstrations throughout the show. We hope to live-stream the demonstrations for Unlimited members who can’t make it to the show. We’ll have some food trucks on hand during the event as well. Special thanks to our sponsors Shaper Origin, Woodpeckers, Blue Spruce, and Titebond for helping to make the event possible. Special thanks as well to Bob Van Dyke at Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking for organizing the event and putting together the roster of demonstrators.

Come out and take in some demonstrations, say hi to your favorite authors, and hang out with fellow woodworkers. it’s a long-overdue invitation to get together and have some fun. I hope to see you there.

The event is free, but for us to plan properly we’d appreciate it if you pre-registered for the event here.
