The Woodworking Shows are making a circuit of the Midwest and Roland Johnson is heading to Columbus, Ohio for the show at the Ohio Expo and State Fair Grounds this coming weekend. He'll be giving away a Stanley No.4 smoother that will be rejuvinated over the course of the weekend.
The Woodworking Shows are making a circuit of the Midwest and I’m heading to Columbus, Ohio for the show at the Ohio Expo and State Fair Grounds this coming weekend.
I’ll be at the show Friday, Saturday and Sunday giving seminars and meeting our woodworking friends. The seminars include a handplane and a scraper clinic. Festivities start on Friday, January 15th with the doors opening at noon. Saturday’s hours are 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
The handplane clinic is going to be a discussion about four essential shop planes: scrub, jointer, smoothing and block. I’ll also delve into buying, resurrecting and tuning-up used planes.
The card scraper clinic will show you how to quickly tune-up and use this sometimes misunderstood and despised woodworking essential.
I’m giving away a Stanley No.4 smoother that will be rejuvinated over the course of the weekend. All you have to do to enter is stop by and fill out an entry form, if you win the plane will be shipped to you after the show.

I'll be at the St Louis show also..
For you other married guys...my wife buys me a ticket to this every year for Valentines Day..
this year I'll be there on Friday afternoon and probably Sunday afternoon....
I would still like to vote for making the video...
I will be doing all of the presentations at the St.Louis show. I alternate between hand plane rejuvenation and card scraper/ scraper plane tune-up seminars. See you in St.Louie
Of course the STL show had to be on Valentines day weekend... my wife is very understanding, but I don't think a wood working show is her idea of a fun Valentines day gift...
I plan to attend the St. Louis show and would really like to watch your restoration work. The schedule for the St. Louis show has you under "Hand Tool Rodeo" with two other presenters and doesn't specify when your sessions will occur. For the "Hand Tool Rodeo" it has:
Friday 1:00, 2:30, 4:00
Saturday 12:00, 2:00, 4:00
Sunday 11:00, 12:30, 2:00
Do you know which of these are yours?
I agree with a live taping of this demo. Since most of of use can't attend, it would be a great benifit to us that do subscribe to finewoodworking.com as well as the magazine. Personal I have about four old planes at home that deed this kind of attention, and I would love some insight as to where to begin.
Any chance that FWW could videotape one of the handplane clinics for viewing later by readers who can't attend in person?
Preferably the entire class/clinic - not just a 5 minute excerpt?
Don't woory about tight editing. I'm sure many of us enjoy stuff like this 'as it happens' - like with the recent 'live' cherry table 'finishing shootout' with Asa, Mike, and Anatole.
In fact, why not do it live, just like the shootout?
I attended the one for Chicago at the Schaumburg Renaissance center. The show was on the small side from previous shows but still good. I didn't see that there was a chance to win an old plane but may have missed it.
Woodworking shows never seem to come to southern Louisiana or any other part of Louisiana that I am aware of either ...to bad.
I wonder why the woodworking shows never come to Rio Rancho, New Mexico? ;-)

In this video Michael finishes the first of the three boxes. Gluing-up, planing, sanding and finishing bring a new piece of art to the world.
In this video Michael starts work on the second box, a carved and painted Saddle lid box.
Michael begins carving the saddle lid box with his ripple pattern along the top. Then turns to his 5/30 gouge to texture the sides of the box. This isn't work…
