Woodworking in America offers you even more than the chance to see the very latest in woodworking products and learn from seasoned experts and woodworking icons—though these alone are worth the price of registration! You can also enjoy the opportunity spend time with other like-minded woodworkers—problem solving, sharing ideas and talking shop.

Purchasers of the full three-day conference registration can enjoy a full day of activities, Sunday, September 14. The day will be packed with opportunities to spend time with your fellow woodworkers enjoying a variety of fun, offsite activities.
