Rollie Johnson. This was taken during a break in shooting for Rollie's article on thin-kerf blades. I love how the crowed almost chaotic shop surrounds his moment of quiet.
When I go on a photo shoot for an article, I can take as many as 700 or 800 pictures. Typically, no more than 20 to 30 would make into the article. So there are a ton of never seen photos hidden away. Among them there are typically a handful of candid shots. Once my lights are set up, it isn’t too much trouble to get a few pictures of the author justing being himself. And we need shots like that for the contributors’ page in the magazine.
I’ve pulled together some of my favorites and posted them here. Take a look and enjoy. I think that in all of the photographs, you can see the playfullness and joy of the authors.
Michael Fortune. This was taken on my first photo shoot. Although it might seem Michael is scowling at me, he isn't. He's deep in thought.
Hank Gilpin. This was taken just a few weeks ago. I was visiting Hank for an upcoming video workshop. We had just finished eating lunch, which he made. He is scowling at me, but in jest.
Dan Chaffin. Dan is a great designer and woodworker, and a lot of fun to boot. It was on this photo shoot where I came across the bacon doughnut. I ate really well on this trip.

Seems to be okay now. It must have been a temporary glitch.
Are you still having trouble? Everything works fine for me.
Something has gone wrong with the hyperlinks on the thumbnails next to the main photo--they don't go anywhere any more (not just on this post, but on the others as well).
Hilarious. This is one of my favorite posts. I love the Gilpin scowl.

In this video Michael finishes the first of the three boxes. Gluing-up, planing, sanding and finishing bring a new piece of art to the world.
In this video Michael starts work on the second box, a carved and painted Saddle lid box.
Michael begins carving the saddle lid box with his ripple pattern along the top. Then turns to his 5/30 gouge to texture the sides of the box. This isn't work…
