We are excited to be attending this year’s edition of the Lie-Nielsen Open House. The annual event never disappoints, with a great group of hand tool event staff showing off the latest additions to the Lie-Nielsen line. There will also be a diverse group of guest demonstrators present, showing off their wares and creations. And don’t forget to enter the Open House raffle for a chance to win one of three great prizes: a bevel edge chisel, a 102 low angle block plane or a honing guide.
The Saturday night lobster bake dinner may be sold out, but the rest of the open house is still well worth a visit. See you in Maine!
