I'm in Fine Woodworking Magazine!!!
« on: October 30, 2019, 10:30:46 PM »

Well, kinda....

What I should say is that my bald head is featured prominently in Fine Woodworking Magazine's Tools and Shops Annual Issue for Winter 2020!




 


Here is the background story.

About a year ago I was approached by a local customer - Jason Stephens (that's him on the left in the photo above) - who had submitted an article idea to FWW magazine about his journey as a woodworker to have treecycle large logs that were overlooked by traditional sawmills into lumber.  Jason is a 25 year Air Force Veteran who had started slabbing when he was stationed in Texas, and then he move to NC.  FWW responded positively about Jason's proposal, and to quote the editor, the gist of the article as explained to Jason is:

 "weíd like to really home in on ďwhy mill your own lumber?Ē So itíd be less about your own techniques as a sawyer and more about the benefits of milling, how to find trees, how to deal with them before and after milling, best storage practices, and when to seek out which type of mill. In other words, itís kind of the before, during, and after working with a sawyer. "

So the article really isn't about my milling operation, although part of it was photographed here and we're mentioned in it.  Additionally a local portable band mill operator - Roy Lynch - is featured milling some of Jason's smaller logs, and a woodworker from Minnesota - Matt Cremona - who built his own 6' band slabbing mill is also featured in the article.

Jason brought us some large white oak logs in to be slabbed and quartersawn as part of the magazine article.  Last spring the magazine flew in an editor and photographer, and they spent the day with us observing our process.  They flew back home, and quite frankly I had forgotten all about it until now.

Earlier today I received a FedEx from Taunton Publishing with three copies of the aforementioned issue in it, and a nice note from the editor about how he enjoyed his trip here.  This comment in particular really made me feel good:  "You all were so hospitable and accommodatingóand your operation is so fantasticóthat shoot is one of the highlights of my time here. "

I think that the opening page of the article is a pretty cool photo (but then again I'm biased!)  That's Ken, one of our millers, operating our farm-built 72" slabber.




 


Here's the magazine cover:




 



Ya know, it's nice to have friends that care about you and keep you grounded.  As you can imagine, today around the mill the magazine article was the talk of the day.  

One friend suggested that I should rename my business to "Baldy's burls", another suggested "Chrome Dome Milling and Slabbing".  "Slicks Slabbing" was also put forth, but the general consensus though was "Hairless Hardwoods" would be the most appropriate.

I wasn't feeling the love, to say the least....

Still fun to be mentioned in a national magazine.

Thanks Robert.
When my friend suggested "Hairless hardwoods" my first reaction was that it sounded too similar to "Hobby Hardwoods" .  LOL

yes that is quite and honor, and I certainly do not mean to take away from it with posting my story.  I have never been published in a wood magazine, let alone fine woodworking, by Taunton press, very good info for real woodworkers.  in this months sawmill and wood lot, there is a article on drone use in forestry.  It was the national walnut council hosted in all places... Topeka, Ks.  I did not go but a friend did.  best Regards and continued success!!!  @scsmith42

Really cool Scott.  I've always considered Fine Woodworking and Fine Homebuilding 2 of the best out there.  It's an honor to grace their pages. 

Now, about Hairless Hardwoods...  Considering my hairline has been slowly changing over the last 10 years, I feel that I may be a little hypocritical saying anything.  HaHa.

Iím thinking real seriously of building a band slabber that will let me mill a 10í wide crotch.  Still have lots of thinking to do about it though.

phrase also used by Dennis' friend Mr. Wilson, 


"Great Scott!" is an interjection of surprise, amazement, or dismay. It is a distinctive but inoffensive exclamation, popular in the second half of the 19th century and the early 20th century, and now considered dated.
 :D :D :D.  made we wonder where the phrase came from, after Sir Walter Scott initially.

I could not wait, but my copy arrived yesterday.  The article and the pictures were impressive.  I do question how the guy in the inset article moved that log on the trailer with a winch and cant hook!

We are in the midst of signing some documents so that I can share .pdf copies of the article.  Hopefully in the next week or two all of the paperwork will get wrapped up.

Cool story! That's awesome to get your operation profiled, even with the "peeled onion" hairstyle😁

Would like to hear the terms.  I called FWW to ask about doing that very thing the other day and was told what I posted above.  TBH the answer the customer service rep gave didnt sound right for a business.  The Unlimited membership is $99/yr.
