All class and no play makes Jack a dull woodworker, so we’ve included optional events for you to network with fellow attendees and WOOD staff, get some hands-on tool time, and shape up your shape with new tools.

"Acme After Hours"

For this private event we’ll take you to Acme Tools’ state-of-the-art Des Moines showroom, where you can pick the brains of factory reps from woodworking tool manufacturers, get deep discounts on tools, and enjoy free food grilled onsite by the Iowa Pork Producers. Guaranteed low prices and free shipping make this a can’t-miss event. 


Weekend With WOOD
Charity Build

Here’s your chance to actually build something during your visit to WOOD magazine. You’ll team up with fellow attendees to build a project that will be donated to a charitable cause, to be determined.
