Just a “heads up” for you Texas folks, or folks who will be near Waco, Texas, this upcoming weekend:
Join us this weekend at the Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event in Waco!
Dowd’s Vintage & Antique Tools will be one of several guest demonstrators at this two day event hosted by Homestead Heritage, and we’ve got a fresh truck load of old tool treasures for you this time!
Homestead Heritage is a Traditional Crafts Village that showcases a community of craftsmen who returned to the values exemplified in handcraftsmanship. Many of you are familiar with, or may have even taken classes at, the Heritage School of Woodworking. The Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event will take place in the woodworking shop. We are very excited to be a part of this collaboration and expect it to be an exceptional venue.
In addition to ongoing demonstrations by the Lie-Nielsen crew, the fine craftsmen of Homestead Heritage, and Jason Thigpen of Texas Heritage Woodworks, Mark Giles will be on hand representing the Society of American Period Furniture Makers. You will definitely want to allow some extra time to visit the shops of the Homestead Craft Village and have a bite to eat at Cafe Homestead. Best of all, you will have plenty of opportunities to get some hands on practice with any of the tools that are of interest to you.
