That's where the first Woodworking in America show (sponsored by Popular Woodworking) just took place in October. I went and got to have lunch with Roy on the first day and dinner with Rob Lee of Lee Valley Tools the next. I had lunch (sounds like all I did was eat...) with Thomas Lie-Neilson on the last day I was there. It was an interesting show and anyone that wanted got the chance to get up close and personal with some of the big names in the hand tool industry. Brea is certainly worth the visit.
