I'm on my way to St.Louis, Missouri this week for another Woodworking Show's Hand Tool Rodeo.

I’ll be at the show Friday, Saturday and Sunday - Feb. 12, 13, & 14 - 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.

Friday    12:45, 1:30, 2:45, 4:15
Saturday  10:45, 12:00, 1:15, 2:45, 4:15
Sunday    10:45, 12:00, 1:15, 2:45
