WOODSKILLS Issue 01 Print Edition preview
Wayne Delyea Furniture Maker says “I bought the downloadable version of the magazine and I want to take time and let everyone know that I really liked it. Well written, informative, educational and thoughtful well executed photography made this well worth what I think is a very reasonable price. I Wish it was at least quarterly vs semiannual. Good job!”
Richard Garrow says “I received my copy yesterday and I must say it is very well written, very detailed, each story has a great content. The pictures look fantastic as well. I believe you going to publish this ones or twice a year is that correct? As look forward to your next issue.”

A few months ago I was notified that my entry had been selected for an upcoming book on contemporary furniture. I finally managed to get hold of the book and received it this week.
The Schiffer publication: Rooted: Creating a Sense of Place: Contemporary Studio Furniture features a selection of contemporary furniture typically created in furniture studios by a single maker.
Quote from Amazon.com: “The movement to buy locally, which has gained momentum in the areas of produce and food, is now spreading to arts and crafts. Through the work of over seventy contemporary furniture makers, the role of place in the creative process is explored and celebrated. Whether in terms of materials, inspiration, or the interaction with customers, these artists are rooted in their surroundings. What springs from these roots is usually unique, often edgy, and always beautiful furniture and accessories.”
In a few weeks, I will post the Introduction to a series of videos on Furniture Design. Working and developing this project as we speak. It began as a small exercise but I’m adding material and more of my knowledge on furniture design principles to this topic.
