The event hours are Friday, Sept. 20 from 10 a.m.- 6 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 21 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. We’re located at 837 Willard St., in Covington, Ky., 41011. Parking is free on the street.
From the press release: “We started these events to expose more woodworkers to the improvements in quality, environment, and enjoyment that handtool work can offer,” says Lie-Nielsen founder and president Thomas Lie-Nielsen, “and over the past decade we’ve seen their popularity explode with new and experienced woodworkers alike. Incorporating traditional tools and methods can offer even die-hard machinery users ways to bring their work to the next level. The fact that our tools don’t require earplugs or respirators just adds to the appeal.
“Lie-Nielsen staff will help demystify the world of hand tool woodworking and cover topics like sharpening, tool setup and use, and joinery. Visitors are encouraged to get hands on and ask questions.”
Christopher Schwarz, Brendan Gaffney and I (along with guest demonstrators yet to be announced), will be there, too. Like the Lie-Nielsen show staff, we’re happy to demonstrate and/or help you use any of the tools, reveal our “tricks” (ask Chris about his Magic Half Pencil!), answer questions about the Lost Art Press books, and more.
