Attendance has been very good. Although I have been busy participating in the sessions, I have attended the marketplace to test some of the new tools. But I found the traffic quite good:
The hands-on sessions were quite busy, too:
Christopher Schwarz at the hands-on bench room, on Sharpening and Using Bench Planes:
And Mario Rodriguez also at the bench room, during his hands-on session Making and Fitting Drawers:
Of course, plenty of new hand tools to try out – you must be here to try out these new beauties:
I made these shavings on my first run with the new stainless steel hand plane from Brese Plane:
And Konrad Sauer had the entire family of new smoothers:
The brand-new Barrett & Sons Mathieson #10 plow plane:
And Ed Paik had his entire line of Medallion Toolworks saws:
Jeff Hamilton demonstrates his marking gauge – the only one reported to be able to mark on rabetted drawer fronts, as he demonstrates here:
I am getting ready for the banquet tonight. The keynote speaker is Roy Underhill. It should be a wonderful, fun night!
More tools and happenings at a later time. Oh – videos, too!
