More than 200 woodworkers attended the Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event, held Oct. 4 and 5 at Fine Woodworking’s shop in Newtown, Ct. Among other things, they had a chance to talk with contributing editor Chris Becksvoort about Shaker furniture, dovetailing, and more.
Assistant editor Matt Kenney showed his technique for fine-tuning miter joints, and experts from Lie-Nielsen Toolworks were there to demonstrate sharpening techniques and answer questions about hand tools.
