Hope you all don’t mind a little bragging.

My work was chosen for the cover of the most recent Lee Valley tools catalog. I’ve been fortunate enough to have had my work published in a good number of magazines, written lots of articles, too, but a cover has thus far escaped me. I’m very excited, and flattered at the same time.

Congratulations! At one time there was a forum topic on the site, started by Ms DebbieP I think, where you could comment on your print accomplishments. You should brag a little more on that thread and bring it back to the top.

Those are awesome. You might need to change your signature line, somehow I don’t think “just another woodworker” fits your skill. Congratulations on the cover. Oh, and I think it was Dizzy Dean or maybe Yogi Berra that said “it ain’t bragging if you can do it” Well, you can do it.

What’s really cool is that I can show that catalog to my friends and say, “I know the guy who made these! He’s a LumberJock!” Congrats Schwingding!

-- Bob Vila would be so proud of you!
