Woodworking in America Conference ..........my look

Woodworking in America was focused for a weekend in Berea, Kentucky, but the world was a part.

You'll find my coverage of the conference was more about the stories and thoughts outside the classroom and tried to get a look into who are today's woodworker's.

You'll also find short Skype video reports from the conference posted over at the Folding Rule Blog. A daily rehash of going's-on at the conference. All four posts are accessible from this link.

The strength of internet woodworking as witnessed by conference coverage by other bloggers, is well done, and can also be found using the above link. You will also find a few words from the basement shop as I had the opportuntiy to talk with Matt Vanderlist the very first woodworking podcaster and creator of Matts Basement Workshop.

One last item......it was a pleasure meeting all of you "furnitologist's" and thank you for the many kind words.

Enjoy........ Neil

Neil -

Wow! Great episode. I had to watch it twice before posting a comment. For those of us not able to attend, I appreciate the behind the scenes look at the conference. Very cool to get to spend some time with your guests!

Neil,

Thanks for giving us this view of the conference. I believe you and your guests distilled the essence quite well!

My only regret: That we did not hook up, as I was looking forward to meeting you and Gigi.

I must plan a little better next time!

Neil,
What a treat!! I love your enthusiasm for the craft and those who love it. Great interviews. I need to get back to David's site and catch up on him, too. Life has been a whirlwind as of late.
Looking forward to what you eluded to in the beginning of the show. "See ya next time at the saw." YEAH!!
