  • Greetings!

    Hi everyone. I just wanted to stop by and introduce myself. I did this on the carving section too, and I'm not quite sure what kind of overlap there is, but better safe than sorry...

    My name is Bob Duncan and I'm the new editorial guy at Fox Chapel. I'm working primarily for Wood Carving Illustrated, because I have wood carving experience, but I am also contributing to SSW (which I'm getting a crash course in).

    I've been woodworking as long as I can remeber, owing to a mispent youth in my father's woodshop.

    In addition to contributing to the magazines, my job is also to cruise the message boards, including this one, to get a general feel for what people are interested in, or working on. I also get to offer suggestions, refer people to out books or magazines, and handle complaints. So, if you have anything to say, just let me have it!!

    Anyway, you'll be seeing my name on the board a lot...because I love to write, and if you need anything, I'm just a click away!

      Being in a woodshop in your youth is a lot better than spending too much time out behind the woodshed!

        Hello Bob! I don't get on here as much as I like to, seems there's a thing called a job I have to attend to every day, in fact I'm at lunch now, but would like to make a suggestion. I got your new magazine on Saturday and as always, couldn't wait to get some of the projects done. Coming in your NEXT issue - christmas projects! Now don't get me wrong, Christmas is my favorite time of the year and most of my scrolsawing is 70% ornaments and christmas projects, BUT the problem is: It's already September 13 and your Christmas projects won't be out for another TWO MONTHS! Couldn't we have Christmas in July or something so we get a chance to get the latest projects in our shows this year and not next? I am already into my shows and have limited time for sawing now, which means most of your new ideas will have to wait until next year. I have this complaint with ALL magazines and catalogs. It is my feeling these patterns should be out by July so we can them into the shows for this year. But that is just my personal feeling. Well, keep up the good work, love your magazine just would like to see Christmas items sooner.

          Betty,
          Thanks for your comments. What you are saying does make sense. I'll bring these issues up at our next editorial meeting.

              Finally got my energy level up enough to drag the saw out and get started on thank you state magnets for for all of my critical care nurses and doctors. They truly became like family in those days.
              This is 24 of the first 34 I am doing. These are all cut from some 3/8" wood I had intended...

              I said in late winter I was going to make a sign for my son's wedding. Becky thought I was crazy for working on it so early, but considering my current health issues, I am glad I finished early.
              Knew nothing about making a sign, but knew I could cut, so I jumped in--blind to some of the challenges...
