America's Best Home Workshops 2009...

Friday, September 18th, 2009


One evening, about a week or so after I completed transforming my garage into a workshop, I was surfing the Wood Magazine forum pages. I noticed a fellow woodworker had posted a thread asking for others to share pictures of their workshop. Since my garage makeover was completed I figured "sure, why not..." and posted a dozen or so images from around the shop.  


About 2 weeks later I received an e-mail from the Managing Editor at Wood Magazine asking if I would like to complete a formal submission for their 3rd annual America's Best Home Workshops special interest publication. I was honored to be considered so I again figured "sure, why not..." and began the process of completing the submission. The submission package included additional shop photos, general specifications and floor plan and electrical drawings (which I created using Microsoft Visio).


I was notified several weeks later that my shop was selected to be premiered in the 3rd annual America's Best Home Workshops publication. That was the start of a great experience that culminated in a wonderful 8-page article that contains several photographs and measured illustrations of a few of my specialty holders and fixtures. The process lasted about 9 months and I was fortunate to work with many great folks including the professional photograph, technical illustrator, professional writer and several staff members at Wood Magazine. It was truly a fun and interesting endeavor.
