John : several interview about his Extreme Birdhouses. One of the most recent is in the April/May 2007 editions of “Out Here”, a Canadian Publication. (Also available in PDF form at www.outhere.ca ) Note: John’s article is the “centrefold” article.

John has also been interviewed for the May 2007 issue of Canadian Home Workshop Magazine.

Congratulations John on your well-deserved honour.

I forgot about being in a movie once.
I was in the Civil Air Patrol Cadets when I was in High School. I went on a two week encampment at Rapid City Air Force Base. They made a recruiting movie for the CAPC, that was to be narrated by Arthur Godfrey. The Movie was done in 1949. I was one of 5 cadets that were picked from about 300, to be in the movie.
Here’s a good one for you though. I have never seen the movie. LOL :(

I’ve check on the internet a couple of years ago, but couldn’t find it.

you’ve never seen it?? How sad!
Ok. you have to find it… a few emails here, a few phone calls there….

That reminded me that I was interviewed by one of our local politicians. The interview was held at Queen’s Park in Toronto and was aired on cable TV for about 6 months. I had been facilitating a parenting program at our local correctional centre which was to be closed down. I was one of the advocates for keep it open rather than herding the gentlemen into the “super jail”. We didn’t win that one :(

I agree with you that Dick C should be for his work! (Maybe a book?)

I majored in Hotel & Restaurant Management in College. Northwood Institute of Indiana, near French Lick Indiana. (Back in the Stone Age-1974) I was on the front page of the food section of the Indianapolis Star making some cakes…does that count???
Randy
I wasn’t on the front page of today’s paper, in the obits., which is good….I think.

P.S. I was in college when Larry Bird was attending Springs Valley High School in French Lick. (Does this help any?)

JP.. excellent addition to our list.

P-Jack .. oh yyes, that definitely counts!! and so where’s the pic of the pic?? :)

(I had to laugh at your 1974 comment. My daughter’s school is putting pictures of the teachers (from their own high school years) in their yearbook and the teachers asked her to bring in a picture of herself from the late ‘70s/early /80’s.. She said, “Oh, you want BABY pictures!”... They didn’t think that was funny lol. (She was born 1979, while most of them, well, weren’t ;)
And just to add to the laugh, well we laughed – a lot—she found a picture of her 7th birthday and she was wearing her birthday present: a walkman (about 1/2 of her height, clipped to her belt) and big honkin’ headphones. She looked SO cool hahahaa I’m still laughing).

And Fine Woodworking.com just went live with a Sketchup blog (Design,Click, Build) where I’m a featured contributor (if only my woodworking skills matched my Sketchup skills I’d be happy)

http://blogs.taunton.com/n/blogs/blog.aspx?webtag=fw-designforum&redirCnt=1

You’ll need to subscibe (many of you may already). FWW online is a great resource.
You can also see the video tutorials I’m doing for Sketchup at brightcove.com if you don’t feel like subscribing to FWW. One of my co-contributors is also posting some tutorials as well. just do a search on brightcove for “sketchup tutorials”.

As an amateur hobbyist, the traditional tool chest that I posted as a project here on lumberjocks is the only thing that has granted me a couple of passing glances. I would have to dig out the issues for the month and year, but there’s a picture of the chest in the project section of the American Handyman magazine (8-10 years ago?) and I also won my DeWalt tabletop planer by submitting pictures of the chest to a tool storage contest in Wood magazine (4-6 years ago?) – honorable mention.

This is completely non-woodworking related but does reflect skills from another career.

I designed the new official University Seal for my alma mater after they became part of the Texas A&M system. It made the local news but that’s it. As far as being “published”, the seal appears on every diploma issued by the university since 1993.

More non-woodworking related, but creative…

I was a writer/”actor”/producer on a student run variety tv show (local access) back in college. (totally extra curricular, this wasn’t for a class, credit or anything, just the love of the game). ”I’m not an actor, but I play one on tv….”

I had some recurring bits, in one I played a meteorologist – the gag was I didn’t wear pants. I was “recognized” by the manager of a local fast food place – he leaned over the counter (thankfully from a distance) and said “I was just checking to make sure you had pants on.” My puzzled expression got a quizzical and less confident “You do the weather, right?”
“Yeah.”

Freshman year I painted the college logo on one of the walls in the student gov’t offices (about 4 or 5 feet across). A couple years later I caught a glimpse of it on the 5:00 (real, out-of-state) TV news, back in my hometown… So my work has been on TV without my doing! Sadly, the building has been demolished to make way for a new student union. I don’t even have a photo of it. Got $50 for the job though.

I do have one thing to add, that isn’t all that significant, at the time I hated the mans innards, but while stationed in Ft. Gordon, GA. I was on a detail to welcome General Westmoreland to our base. During inspection I was picked as the most stract soldier of the detail. Stract meaning having your stuff together, or you were the spiffyist guy on the detail and got to stand down, (replaced). So I never got to meet General Westmoreland. who cares… jockmike

I don’t know about being a ‘celebrity,’ but I guess if Sandor Nagyszalanczy comes up and hugs me when we meet, I’m pretty well known in the woodworking world due to my writing and book reviews. (and I can spell his name, too.)
Last year I won second place in the Golden Hammer Awards sponsored by the Nat’l. Assoc. of Home & Workshop Writers for a long article in WoodCraft magazine, so that was my 15 minutes of fame. I was second to Sandor and Jeff Jewitt trailed in third, so I was in excellent company and was honored to be included. I was working too hard this year to even compete, and all those writers wondered what happened to my submission, sigh. Too bad a penchant for food and living indoors has to get in the way of the fun stuff!
