Prepping for Williamsburg

Last weekend I spent putting the final touches on my Saturday evening banquet address for the Colonial Williamsburg conference Working Wood in the 18th Century.  My after dinner talk is titled “The Old Ways Just Might Be the Best Ways,” and is a brief travelogue through the world of blended woodworking, using power tools when they are best, but especially using hand tools when they do the job better than any other approach.

Earlier that afternoon I will be demonstrating oil and wax as finishing materials.  I hope to see you there.

Gotta go finish packing all my stuff now.
