Midnight Woodworking

Woodworking

Woodworking in America day 1

I got here in Cincinnati a day early for the conference. That gave me a chance to see a few sites. Along the river you can see a lot of bridges and stadiums, even a mural or two.

Thursday night we had a meet-up at the Keystone Bar & Grill, with some of the members of the Modern Woodworker’s Association. The guys from Woodtalk online were there as well

I started the day watching Roy Underhill put on a bit of a show. He somehow manages to turn a tree into a square beam while making you laugh the whole time. I was in the fourth row back and still managed to get hit by wood flying wood chips.

I got to learn about cutting miters with Chris Schwarz, and have a roundtable discussion with the online woodworking community. Some of these guys have been blogging and podcasting (free of charge) for ten to fifteen years.
