Back in July I hinted at some big announcements. One is still on the pipeline, but I am pleased to announce that as of this month I am a contributing writer to Furniture & Cabinet Making Magazine. My inaugural column, regarding hand tool heritage, appears in issue 224 (published today), available in all good newsagents as well as ebook format (celebratory glass of beer not included).
If my scrawlings aren’t sufficient to tempt you, this month’s edition also features a fascinating article about the life of Henry Disston written by Mark Harrell of Bad Axe Tool Works (seriously, it reads like a long-lost story by Dickens), and a Q&A with Tom Fidgen. So some heavy weight stuff.
This is going to be a regular column for F&CM, and I am currently putting the finishing touches to my next article. It goes without saying that I would love to hear any feedback from folk who have read the first column.
