Earlier this year I took a ride down to the Woodworking Show in Milwaukee. I had the opportunity to do some filming and as always pick up a few things for myself. I now have a couple of new texturing tools from Ron Brown and got a pretty good deal on a big pack of foam brushes. There was time to catch up with Andy Chidwick and his family when I got the show. As you can see in the video I had a chance to speak with several of the exhibitors including Ron Brown, Earlex, Aqua Coat, Dubs Longboards, Milwaukee Lutherie, Kreg, MicoJig, and many more. After the show I had a visit with Jim Heavey, Roland Johnson, David Heim, Richand Wedler and some of the Bosch Reps at Dinner. It was a great show and a great time after the show as well.

At my local guild meeting we had Michael Doerr give a presentation on his process of building sculpted chairs. After a few conversation with Michael we decided to record a conversation at his shop about his chairs and school. During our conversation we get to discuss how he got started in woodworking, some of his process for building chairs, and a great surprise to me … I get to return to Michael’s shop and learn the process in the spring.

While wondering around and drooling over all the wonderful tools at Woodworking in America, I stopped and had a chat with Ron Hock. I also asked him to have another conversation for the podcast, and he agreed. Ron’s company Hock Tools makes what I consider the best woodworking blades available today. During our conversation we get to discuss how he got started making plane blades, sharpening, his new knife kits, and much more.

At Woodworking in America this year, I ran into and had a conversation with Regis Will. We also I talked about doing a conversation for this episode of Shop Time. As it turns out, we both have a passion for hand saws and fixing them up, we both work in tech, and both of us do a lot of bicycling. We both received prizes this year from completing in the Hand Tool Olympics too. Regis won his jointer plane, for his abilities and doing the best at an event. While I won the set of spoon bits from Tools for Working Wood from the raffle part of the of the event. Regis has his own blog at The New Yinzer Workshop. He also presents and teaches at the Western Pennsylvania Woodworkers and the Foundation’s Preservation Resource Center in Pennsylvania.

During my trip to Woodworking in America this year, I had opportunity to arrange a time for a conversation with Chris Schwarz for this episode of Shop Time.

As the former editor of Popular Woodworking Magazine, and cofounder of Lost Art Press, Chris has an incredible influence in the woodworking community. I have seen him present at this and previous WIAs and each time it is educational, entertaining, and inspiring. Chris is one of the people I have always revered in the woodworking, it was an honor to have the opportunity to have a conversation with him about backgrounds in woodworking, tools, and a little about workbenches.
