Over the years, I've found that many of the problems that crop up with woodworking projects can be solved with simple solutions. Take the projects in this issue for example.
I wanted the wardrobe to look as good on the inside as it did on the outside and still remain affordable. Instead of using solid cherry or expensive 3/4"-thick plywood, the solution was simple. Just sandwich two thin pieces of plywood back-to-back in the case and door frames.
With the cutting board on page 18, the problem was keeping the ends from splitting when cleaning it in water. Here, a dovetail-shaped key "locks" the pieces together to keep the joints from opening.
And who hasn't had to pick through a pile of hardware dumped out of a can trying to find just the right screw? We came up with a couple of quick solutions. Check out one of the hardware organizers featured on page 22.
new faces. While we've been busy putting out this issue, we've also been busy adding some new faces around here.
First of all, Todd Lambirth joined us as Art Director for Woodsmith. One of Todd's main responsibilities is to gather information from Illustrators, Editors, and Designers. Then he has to decide how to present all this information visually in the best possible way.
Then, Susan Du Bois came on board as our new Circulation Director. Susan is in charge getting new subscribers and keeping the old ones happy.
Next, Vince Ancona and Susie Rider joined our extended family. Vince is an Assistant Editor, and Susie is an Associate Graphic Design Director, and both work in the Creative Resources department.
Creative Resources is made up of a lot of talented people and their job is to support the magazines produced by August Home Publishing. (This includes; Woodsmith, ShopNotes, and Garden Gate.)
Finally, we've added three people to our Mail Order department. Margo Petrus is our new Customer Service Representative. And Scott Gilliam and Cathy Steiner have joined the Warehouse Staff.
