Last year people got a chance to see how fun steambending can be.
At every FWW Live, close-up cameras capture the action so you dont miss a detail.
High-end vendors are on hand to give you plenty of time to try out their tools, plus answer any question.
And there is plenty of time to meet old friends and make a lot of new ones.
SCSUs new student center is a great place to host a conference, with tons of high-tech space and great food options inside.

The first-ever Fine Woodworking Live was a hit, making the next one a sure thing. It is happening August 8-11, 2013, at the campus of Southern Connecticut State University, in New Haven, CT. And the Fine Woodworking Live website is up and taking registrations.

There you will also find complete info on the event, lodging, and everythiung else. What you might not see yet is the affordable dorm option for lodging, and the pre-show tour of Yale's amazing furniture collections. Both are coming soon.

The venue is more accessible this year, centrally located between Boston and New York, and less than an hour from the Hartford/Springfield airport, with a range of great lodging options nearby. What's more, we've been able to make the price even more affordable.

But the improvements don't end there. This year, based on attendee feedback, all classes are electives (aside from a couple of all-conference seminars) meaning you are in charge.

We have other surprises in store, too. So sign up today to reserve your spot.

Missed last year's event, but already registered for this August. Can't wait !! Quick question, do paid attendees get copies of all the session videos?

AsaC AsaC writes: Sorry about the electives confusion. The is no specific schedule for classes until we know how many people want what. Less than a week after registering for the conference, you'll receive an email asking you to choose your classes (electives). Then at the event, you'll get an individualized schedule.

AsaC AsaC writes: The is no specific schedule yet, Linuxguy. When you register you pick what you want, and then we hand you your schedule at the event. That will let us adjust how many times we repeat certain classes based on demand. See you there. You too, Geniole!

Folks thinking of attending may want to note that New Haven does have limited airline service from US Air. Bradley / Hartford will probably be better, but it's worth a look.

Calendar marked!
