From the Editor: Get Ready for Fine Woodworking Live 2020
Just in time for the holidays, we’ve opened registration for Fine Woodworking Live 2020, this time with 100% more Roy Underhill.
Just in time for the holidays, we’ve opened registration for Fine Woodworking Live 2020. It’s happening April 17–19 at the same great location, the Southbridge Hotel and Conference Center in Massachusetts, and as always it will be loaded with woodworking talent.
As of this writing, we are still building the lineup, but so far it’s loaded with legends. We’ll have returning presenters, including contributing editors Chris Becksvoort, Chris Gochnour, Garrett Hack, Rollie Johnson, Steve Latta, and Bob Van Dyke, as well as our own Mike Pekovich. We will also welcome back Peter Follansbee, Peter Galbert, Nancy Hiller, Tom McLaughlin, and Chris Schwarz. New presenters this year include David Heim, Tom Lie-Nielsen, Phil Lowe, Philip Morley, and Dave Richards.
And I’m excited to welcome our keynote speaker Roy Underhill to the show. The longtime host of The Woodwright’s Shop on PBS will share his personal perspectives on the craft in his typical lively fashion, plus he’ll host a couple of seminars over the weekend. He doesn’t sit still for a minute!
Our Friday all-day classes have been such a hit that we’ve added a third one. Chris Gochnour will host a handplane workshop. Bob Van Dyke will teach you how to make a classic shaded fan inlay. And David Heim and Dave Richards will present a SketchUp intensive.
As always, there will be great social events, an exhibition of student furniture, our Shop Talk Live podcast, and plenty of tool vendors. New this year will be an antique tool sale on Friday afternoon. For more information and to sign up for email updates, go to finewoodworkinglive.com.
Don’t miss out on THE woodworking event of the year. I hope to see you there.
