2013 Lie Nielsen Hand Tool Event – Portland, OR
February 9, 2013 Comments Off on 2013 Lie Nielsen Hand Tool Event – Portland, OR
This weekend was the annual Lie Nielsen Hand Tool Event at the Northwest Woodworking Studio in Portland, OR. I attend the event each year (going on five years for myself), and I’ve never been disappointed. We should all give Lie Nielsen so much credit for organizing these events across the country (and Canada) each year. Admission is free and they don’t charge other vendors to showcase their tools (who are often are in direct competition Lie Nielsen). The focus is always on woodworking education without a hard-sell approach. The small settings are also more intimate and inviting, as compared to large trade shows in expansive convention centers. If you are within shouting distance of one of these events, mark your calendar and don’t miss it. Pictures are below.
Nobody does a better job at documenting a Lie Nielsen Hand Tool Event than Jeff Burks. Here is his photo-log from a recent event in Brooklyn, NY.
