Palomar College, near San Diego – January 23-24

This will be my first visit to the West Coast with my planes! I really hope that you come out to see me and to try them out for yourself. I’m realizing more and more that the curves of my planes belong on the West Coast. If this show goes well, I hope to make it to others out there in the future.
The Lie-Nielsen event takes place at Palomar College, in San Marcos, 9am-5pm Friday and 9am-4pm Saturday. The other exhibitors will be my friends from Hock Tools, Glen-Drake Toolworks, Juan Vergara Infill Handplanes, and Sterling Tool Works (Saturday only). You really don’t want to miss it!

Plan ahead for some Spring Lie-Nielsen Events as well!
