no previous part Part 1 of Woodworking In America 2009: Furniture Construction and Design series Part 2: My Lazy Coverage of the Event »

I am in the process of attending the Woodworking in America: Furniture Construction and Design Conference in St. Charles, IL. Today was the first day and I am very impressed so far. I plan to put up some more detailed descriptions of the sessions later on when I get a little more time.

I just wanted to let everyone know that they have a nice exhibition hall with many vendors. Lie-Nielsen is there along with Lee Valley and many others. Lee Valley is giving 15% off and free shipping for any orders placed during the show. I’ll let you know what I ordered once I figure it out tomorrow. If any of you are close to St. Charles you should stop by and check it out. Admission to the exhibition hall is free.

Any other LumberJocks that are at the conference also, we could try to meet up somehow.

Dang – I’m all tied up in my shop with a project!

I would love to hook up with other LJ’s in the future.

I will have to live vicariously through you on this one.

Actually I’d love to go but my wife and daughter in law are both working then and as you can see, I will have my hands full. Been a lot of that lately, hmmm, maybe it is the shots.
