    Handworks 2017

    They just announced Handworks 2017:

    This is one of the best hand tool events in the country. I went last year and it was amazing. Already booked a room for next year.

    I saw it was in Iowa but mentally I thought Idaho. I was really excited I would be able to go..then reality hit me.

    Are there any similar events in the pacific northwest?

    Not far enough from Chicago
    There is only one Handworks and nothing else comes close.

    We are supposed to fly to Missouri from Arizona right around that time to visit my wife's family. I wonder if I could hop on a plane and head over for a day during that. Looks awesome.

    I'll be in the millwright's shop along with Bad Axe, Walke Moore, J Wilding, and others. Hope to see some of you there!

    I missed it last year, won't miss it this time around. About a 2 hour drive from Ames and look forward to seeing you Steve and hopefully test drive one of your planes.

    It'll be an 11 hour drive each way for me, but it's well worth it. Here is a photo I took last year:

    Wow…that looks like quite the event. And no admission charge?

    Don't know if it's in the cards for me, but I would love to make it.

    Any decent/affordable places to stay near the event?

    I am intrigued. What is so great about it?

    Every prominent hand tool maker is there, and many expert woodworkers giving demonstrations. Being able to test-drive Ron's planes, and a number of other infills, was worth the trip alone.
