    You Too Can Be a Published Author

    by Andrew Davis

    Ah, the limelight.  When Bob Dylan started writing musical poetry, I'm sure nobility in the form of Nobel Prize laureate was never imagined.

    Serendipity brought Andrew to meet a surgeon who wanted to know more about woodworking and what it takes to develop the skills and tool set to achieve a level of fine woodworking.  Unable to finish the conversation, Andrew came up with an idea and a challenge to the Guild.

    Even if the title Laureate does not strike your fancy, Andrew has something to say about it.  Read about it and the challenge in November's Bevel Cut article.

    Andrew welcomes your feedback.
