Just an FYI. Asa Christiana and I headed down to NYC on Wednesday for an appearance on the Martha Stewart show. I was asked to bring a project as an FW staffer (brought one of my humidors) but my segment was cut, as they were running six minutes over in the rehearsal. That said, Asa had a bit of back-and-forth with Martha and it was a show devoted entirely to woodworking. If you’re home on a snow day and have the Hallmark channel, it’ll be on today at ten. It also streams on Martha Stewart’s website. Asa and I were seated right up front and Mike Daum, president of the Long Island Woodworker’s Club was also with us. Woodworking finally gets some national attention!
Stewart’s brother, Eric (a woodworker) was on with his Maloof-inspired chair, as was his mentor, woodworker Charles Brock, turner David Lancaster and Nick Offerman (actor from Parks and Recreation and also an accomplished woodworker.
