“We started these events to expose more woodworkers to the improvements in quality, environment, and enjoyment that handtool work can offer,” says Lie-Nielsen founder and president Thomas Lie- Nielsen, “and over the past decade we’ve seen their popularity explode with new and experienced woodworkers alike. Incorporating traditional tools and methods can offer even die-hard machinery users ways to bring their work to the next level. The fact that our tools don’t require earplugs or respira- tors just adds to the appeal.”
Lie-Nielsen staff will help demystify the world of hand tool woodworking and cover topics like sharpen- ing, tool setup and use, and joinery. Visitors are encouraged to get hands on and ask questions.
Lie-Nielsen also invites guest demonstrators to showcase their work at these events. Guests include independent toolmakers, woodworkers, and educators who share their values for quality craftsmanship. The guests for this event will be posted on www.lie-nielsen.com/hand-tool-events
