Woodworking in America 2009



The first of two Woodworking in America Conferences for 2009 has been announced. The first conference will focus on furniture construction and design and the second one, later in the year will focus on technique.

The good news for tool makers (and tool junkies like us!) is that there will be a marketplace at both events, giving attendees the opportunity to see some of the best hand tool manufacturers and their wares in one location. If the turnout at last year's event is any indication, this year's events should be even more amazing, with even more makers present. We know of at least one relatively new company that plans to exhibit. Yes, Benchcrafted is hoping to make it to both conferences this year. And hopefully with new products to offer!

We're excited!

Vise Orders on the fly!

For those of you watching, waiting and eagerly anticipating; another good size batch went out the door today. We are now officially ahead of schedule.

Amazing how many of these are going to Europe and beyond. Japan even has one or two floating around!

Benchcrafted ads that didn't fly....

A little humor is all we need. From the vault (way deep back in the corner), here are a few of our failed banner ads that never got off the ground.

Whew..........disaster averted!



Well, it took us about an hour but we got the new servers up and the site is running smoothly again. Thanks go out to IBM for this great equipment. IMSAI, we'll miss you.

Site is Down!



Our servers are down this morning over at the website so please be patient! It's dinged our header here also!

Maybe we should upgrade from our vintage IMSAI? Or maybe it's just a bad punch card in the loop?
