On Friday afternoon I arrived home to find a package containing 10 freshly-printed copies of the Oct/Nov Woodcraft Magazine which includes the feature story on my shop!
It went something like this:
Navin R. Johnson: The new phone book’s here! The new phone book’s here!
Harry Hartounian: Boy, I wish I could get that excited about nothing.
Navin R. Johnson: Nothing? Are you kidding? Page 73 – Johnson, Navin R.! I’m somebody now! Millions of people look at this book everyday! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity – your name in print – that makes people. I’m in print! Things are going to start happening to me now.
[the Sniper points to Navin’s name in the phone book]
Sniper: Johnson, Navin R… sounds like a typical bastard.
I was especially happy to see this issue includes an article comparing the Saw Stop and new Delta Unisaw…should be a pretty popular issue.
UPDATE: I just realized that I forgot to mention something important—there’s a box at the end of the article with the contact information for editor Jim Harrold to tell him about how cool YOUR workshop is. If they like it, they just may do an article on your shop as well!!
