American Craft Magazine online No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

I’ve been honored recently to be included in a new online column for American Craft Magazine:

They are accepting column submissions from any writer/crafter on the subject of ‘Why I Make,’ so anyone interested can write up a short piece and submit it for consideration.
It’s great to have a magazine that supports and promotes American crafts as this one does. If you are so inclined, polish up your best work and put it out there!

What a wonderful thing to have happen. Kind of sums up youjr hard work. I have loved seeing your work on LJ’s and the story you shared was a real blessing. That is one of my goals to be published about woodworking. Now I can again set my goals to this after reading yours. Thanks for your work and sharing! What a milestone.

Congratulations and I hope it works out great for you. Thanks for calling attention to that magazine – I wasn’t familiar with it.

Congrats… A very imaginative article.. I could see the wood. To me if you can draw the reader into what you are doing and place a picture in there mind you got it. You did well.
