Like a lot of people, I have stacks of old Fine Woodworking Magazines in my house, and I owe a good deal of my woodworking education to them. My copies, going back to the 90s, bring back a lot of memories for me. When a new issue would land in the mailbox, everything slowed down a bit.
Now, about twenty years later, a couple articles I’ve written will appear in Issue #263, due out later this week. One guides the reader along a carving journey from a log to a bowl like the one below, illustrated with masterful photos and drawings by Jon Binzen and John Tetreault, respectively.
The other teaches the layout and carving of the necklace around the rim.
Of course, I’m amazed and thrilled. It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with the folks from Fine Woodworking , and I’ll have more to mention later. You’ll be able to read the new issue soon, either on your screen or in print. I’m not here to tell you which option is better, but it’s print of course.
