I have to say the first HandWorks Event was one of the best Hand Tool Woodworking events in which I've had the pleasure to participate. The Venue was great, the cast of vendors was top notch and some of the work being performed by Mike Siemsen and his group made the event loads of fun. The location at the Amana Colonies creates interest for the other members of your family that may not want to spend two days immersed in all things related to hand tool woodworking.
Last year the main event, was a pictorial review of the Studley Tool Chest. This year you'll get the opportunity to view this tool chest and the Studley Bench in person. Don Williams has made arrangements to have these items on display. Follow the link here for more information about that: http://www.studleytoolchest.com/
This heads up should give you plenty of time to make your travel arrangements." Be There or Be Square".....of course being square can be a good thing.
