Woodworking in America is a conference held every year by the folks at Popular Woodworking Magazine. The conference features classes from various woodworking experts, a bustling vendor floor where you can quickly max out your credit cards, and numerous official and unofficial after-hours events. Personally, my favorite aspect of the show is the camaraderie. More than any other woodworking event, WIA brings out the online woodworkers. That means I get to put faces with the names I’ve been communicating with for years. And for the first time ever, all three co-hosts of Wood Talk were in the same place at the same time. The result of that can be heard in Wood Talk #154.

While I’d love to show you extensive footage of the classes, that just isn’t possible. There are always intellectual property hurdles and not to mention, video/audio quality concerns. So this video shows a few highlights and then focuses primarily on the vendors. It’s always fun to see new tools I’ll probably never buy and the vendors usually aren’t shy about discussing their products.

We talked with Lie-Nielsen, Shenandoah Tool Works, Hamilton Marking Gauges, Vogt Tool Works, Scott Meek Woodworks, Hock Tools, Blue Spruce Tool Works, Juan Vergara – Planemaker,

Neat show – it seemed last year there were more e-mails and invites and such.
I didn’t know WWIA 2013 happened until I saw this posting.

I like the blue spruce spruce chisels – but I couldn’t pull the trigger to pay 145 for a square block joiners mallet.

Very nice tools and a excellent video as well. My favorite videos are produced by the woodwhisperer. The only comment is that the tools are way over priced for my retirement budget. Mark should definitely be on one of the educational channels, no clowning around just educational format. No we are not related just my thoughts.
