FINALLY! My new book is finished! (It’ll be in book stores this fall.) Thanks to Popular Woodworking and F+W Media, Inc. as well as Megan Fitzpatrick, and my editors Scott Francis and Dan Pessell for their hard work! It took a year to complete, and a lot of people were involved. Now it’s in the printer’s hands. Here’s a sneak peak of the cover. This book is unlike anything I’ve ever seen published. I think you’re going to like it!

UPDATE- It’s available for pre-order at Popular Woodworking and on Amazon, but if you want a signed copy (no extra charge) you have to get it from our website. It will be available there in a week or two (which is when the other sites will actually have it as well.)

Keep an eye on our website for more woodworking goodness!

Your hard work, and ingenuity has paid off. Hope you kept you sense of humor in the writing?
