In early July, I recieved an e-mail from This Old House Magazine. It wasn’t asking for a subscription, they wanted to publish one of my projects to show case in their magazine. What an honor, and how excited was I to receive this recognition. See the Sept. 2012 issue of This Old house Magazine.

Lumber Jocks, has been a great influence on my work, and I am compelled to believe that the sharing of your knowledge….reviews of tools, blogs of wood working techniques, and tutorials, and personal advice thru pm’s have contributed greatly to my small moment of fame.
My Mother thanks you….My wife thanks you…....My Son thanks you…..and I thank you!!!!

Special thanks to Sheila!!!!!

Congratulations Bob! As you said, what an honor. I will definitely check out the magazine. I hope that your head will continue to fit through doors. Will you be signing autographs?

Funny, I just cancelled my subscription to TOH because I got tired of the magazine having more advertising than substance. I will buy the Sept. issue and check out your work. WAY TO GO..............
