Not to long ago Fine Woodworking Magazine announced the arrival of their first live woodworking event, Fine Woodworking Live. I had the pleasure of talking with FWW Editor Asa Christiana about the magazine and to fill us in on what Fine Woodworking Live is all about. We get all the details about the upcoming event, and even a few scoops on things that may still be in the works to round out the whole weekend. Fine Woodworking Live starts on Friday and Saturday morning with a large general session discussions and then branches off into small-group sessions in the afternoon to discuss topics by a variety of experts you'll recognize from the pages of Fine Woodworking Magazine. Saturday night, Nick Offerman, star of NBC's "Parks and Recreation" and a die-hard woodworker, will be the guest speaker at an optional banquet dinner. Then to wrap it all up on Sunday, there's a number of additional sessions being offered on specific topics in a small class setting. Some of these are limited in space and number of attendees, so get registered early before space fills up. Fine Woodworking Live is being billed as a "can't-miss weekend for anyone looking to dive deep into the craft, guided by the best and the brightest in the field of woodworking. Plus it's a great chance to meet fellow woodworkers in an engaging, enlightening, and fun event".

Matt's Basement Workshop, hosted by Matt Vanderlist, can be found at www.mattsbasementworkshop.com and is the first and longest running woodworking podcast. Since 2006, the show's primary focus is on sharing experiences and educating woodworkers, with an emphasis on the small shop/home woodworker. Tool reviews, hand tool and power tool education, project builds and answering audience questions. The audience interaction is what makes it fun, online and in person. If woodworking is your passion...stop by and say "hi!"
