If you are at all interested in hand tools, you need to make it to Amana, Iowa for the Handworks show taking place May 24-25, 2013. The list of makers that will be there is very impressive. Here are just a few:
- Benchcrafted (They are the evil geniuses behind this incredible event)
- Blue Spruce Toolworks
- Brese Plane
- Bridge City Tool Works
- Daed Toolworks
- Knew Concepts
- Sauer And Steiner
- Vogt Toolworks
I am so excited to join these amazing artisans there! Be sure to check out the Handworks website for the full list.
As if that list wasn’t enough motivation, get this: the show is free to attend! (Donations to help cover expenses are appreciated of course.) Oh, but it gets even better. There are also door prizes provided by many of the aforementioned tool makers! Seriously, if you haven’t checked the site out yet, at least go look at the amazing door prizes! I promise you will drool.
I really hope to see you at Handworks next month. If you are there, please be sure to stop by my booth, say hello, and try out my planes.
