MWA Boston Chapter Meetup: Lie-Nielsen at the Furniture Institute of MA

MWA Boston Chapter Meetup: Dec 1st, 2012

We're planning a visit to Phil Lowe's shop in Beverly MA for the Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event on Saturday December 1st, 2012, followed by dinner/drinks at a nearby venue. Join the fun anytime Saturday afternoon to go play with the tools (and buy some, no doubt), and chat with the demonstrators before we set out for food around 5p.

Here is the Link to the Lie-Nielsen event information. In it you'll find a list fantastic demonstrators they've lined up, as well as directions to the shop.

Please feel free to forward this to anyone who may be interested in joining us for this event, or joining the MWA.

Woodworking In America 2012 MidWest In Photos

Woodworking in America 2012 Midwest was a great event this year. Though the community seemed slightly split by having two (2) venues this year, we still managed to have a blast in Cincinnati. We took classes, hawked the MWA to anyone that would listen and, of course, hung out with our woodworking friends (both new and old).
Yep, Mike brought a log to a bar.
In the coming days and weeks, we'll be assembling a podcast of interviews we made with many of the lecturers from WIA2012 Midwest. In the mean time, check the links below to see the full Modern Woodworkers Association photo galleries of the weekend.

We used the photo sharing capabilities of Google+ Events to set up events for our Thursday night get together and the conference itself. Through the Events, anyone who was invited (everyone who follows the Modern Woodworkers Association on Google+) was able to upload all of the photos they took during the event to a communal album.
Thursday nights festivities
On Thursday night, Sean Wisniewski and Dyami Plotke contributed photos to the album you can find here.
We came, we saw, we sat on Megan's bench.
For the full event, Jeff Waggoner, Sean Wisniewski, Nik Brown and Dyami Plotke contributed photos. The full event album is here.
