A month-and-a-half ago, I was asked by the editors at Canadian Home Workshop to come up with some ideas for their annual gift idea issue. I thought about it for a little while, about two weeks, before passing on my best idea – a little box I had dreamed up based on a wooden hinge I had made a few weeks prior. Managing editor Jodi Avery MacLean loved it and asked me to make one for the gift issue. However, because I had waited two weeks to get back to her, I now only had three days to finalize the design and make two boxes along with the necessary jigs to cut the finger joint and rout out the inside. So I worked my tail off and managed to meet the deadline. Then, over the next week, I put pen to paper to draft up an clear and concise article that I was happy with.
By now the November issue of Canadian Home Workshop has hit the newsstands, and lo and behold there it is on page 50. Check it out!
One thought on “This Just In…”
Here is one of your production pieces, easy to sell I think, a novelty item that would go over well at shows and probably has a fairly low labor content? I’m sure you kept track of build time.
