We publishing folks live and die by the “master calendar,” and according to ours here at Woodworker’s Journal, the August print issue is off the press and in the mail. You should be receiving your copy any day now. So, in between cutting the grass, angling for bass or getting those summer woodworking projects going, be sure to give your new magazine a close look. It’s chock-full of summer sizzlers you won’t want to miss:
Lately, my third-grade daughter’s pencil drawings are making me wonder if woodworking could be a genetic trait.
When I was her age, I was drawing Peanuts characters, spaceships and some really scary monsters—at least in my estimation. My kiddo Barrett, on the other hand, is drawing tables and chairs these days…in three dimensions, no less! She draws lots of other things too. There are still plenty of puppy and kitty pictures intermingled with her furniture stuff, but tables and chairs are definitely on her mind.
You can just imagine how that goes over with her woodworking father!
