Next weekend, I’ll be in Cincinnati attending Woodworking In America (WIA). I can’t wait. It is at WIA that Time Warp Tool Works will be officially launching and taking orders for moulding planes. (In case you missed my post a couple weeks ago, Time Warp Tool Works is my side project (a term from the music industry, as in “a project undertaken by one or more persons already known for their involvement in another band” – Wikipedia), a partnership with Garth Schafer.)
Garth and I will be sharing Shannon Rogers‘ booth for The Hand Tool School. There has been a lot of buzz about Time Warp Tool Works and WIA on the various social media platforms and woodworking forums so I’m expecting it to be a busy show for us.
In case the show won’t keep me out of trouble, there are a number of events outside of the WIA Marketplace hours. First up is a Blogger Community Party on Thursday, the night before the show starts. Friday night at 6:30pm (EST), after the Marketplace closes, Garth and I will be joining Shannon for a live video Q&A session with members of The Hand Tool School. After the Marketplace is closed and finished, there is a dinner with members of the talkFestool forum that I’d like to attend. Oh, this is going to be a lot of fun. I hope you can make it and stop by to say “hi”. I’ll be the young guy with long hair and a big grin.
I’d like to extend a special thanks to my friend Paul-Marcel who has invited me to stay with him. He, like I, will be there to work the show – the poor soul has to demonstrate the Jointmaker Pro for Bridge City Tool Works. Yup – it’s tough work but somebody’s got to do it!
I’ll try to take lots of pictures, but if you don’t hear from me by next Sunday, you’ll know why.

Good luck, Chris. You’ll probably have a great time down there. It sure looks exciting!
Another reason why working with hand tools can be safer: you can keep your hair long without worrying about it getting caught (joke).
Knowing how happy you always are when you work the shows, I am sure you’ll have a great time there. Best of luck to the launch of your first moulding planes, too.
