You have probably seen Jim Heavey at the woodworking show.  I'm sure we will learn something from him during this 2 day seminar. http://www.thewoodworkingshows.com/jim-heavey.html     More details to come.

Jim Heavey is a master woodworker and a veteran speaker for the Woodworking Shows and the Senior Editor of Wood Magazine.   Jim will discuss a variety of woodworking topics that include machine setup and maintenance, mastering the router, how to "embellish" a project, and an in-depth look at finishing.
