|2014 saw my article on making the wren published in the prestigious British magazine, WoodCarving, published by the Guild of Master Craftsman.
The first half was featured in the Jul/Aug issue, #139, and the Sept/Oct issue, #140 finished the project.
Not only that, but the wren was chosen for the cover of #139!!! This tops my career as a carver and writer of how-to articles and booklets on carving. Nothing could
top this honor.
In Mar/Apr 2013 this same magazine had published a "20 Minutes With. . ." 2-page spread that featured many of my favorite pieces and a nice interview.
Another excitement came when another British publication, The Woodcarvers Gazette, published by the British Woodcarvers Association, did a 2-page spread
with interview and more photos.
