What Really Happens on a Fine Woodworking Photo Shoot
Fine Woodworking contributing editor Roland Johnson-better known as “Rollie” in these circles-is, how shall we put this delicately…a gearhead. Known for owning at least three of every type of farm or woodworking-related machinery known to man, Rollie is also a consumate reviewer of tools and machinery for our humble magazine. What many of you might not know, is that he’s also a hell of a good mandolin player.
Fine Woodworking senior editor Matt Kenney recently returned from the Johnson family compound after a grueling (sarcasm) three-day shoot for an upcoming review of benchtop mortisers. Upon his return, this little gem of a video quickly made the rounds here at our editorial office in Newtown, CT.
