IWF, Here I Come!
The International Woodworking Fair (IWF) in Atlanta, Georgia is starting on Wednesday. Why, when it is “International,” we decide to hold it in Atlanta in August is curious to me. I mean, if we have the whole world to choose from, how about someplace where the temp is under 90 degrees and the dew point is below “drowning to death”? It is just a question.
I do love Atlanta — the people, the food — I just love it much more in, say, October.
Anyway, that meteorological comment aside, we will be sending reports from the IWF starting around Thursday or so: videos and notes about new tools and cool stuff.
So keep your eyes open and your AC on.
