Win a tutorial with one of America’s finest woodworkers.
“Your chance for one-on-one troubleshooting with a woodworking champion…”
Did anyone else happen to see the news item recently about the amateur golfer who won a contest and got to play nine holes with Tiger Woods as his caddy? Pointers for every shot from the world’s greatest golfer, on the same course where Tiger won the U.S. Open last spring. Tell me that guy didn’t go home with a few new tricks in his bag.
That story comes to mind every time I think about our new project here at the magazine. Because what Tiger did for that golfer is exactly what Fine Woodworking wants to do for you.
We’re looking for woodworkers who want in-person, expert help with their most persistent woodworking problems. Could be sharpening, or design, handplanes or shop machines, cutting a particular type of joinery, applying a finish or what-have-you. Selected readers will get a free, one-on-one tutorial with one of America’s finest woodworkers. Check out our editor’s note in Issue 202 (p. 10) for details.
We’ve done this once already, arranging reader Tom Rawson’s two days of dovetail instruction with contributing editor and “Dovetail Doctor” Gary Rogowski. You can see how much Rawson improved in Issue 201, and watch video of their tutoring sessions here.
I’ve been encouraged by the responses we’ve gotten from readers so far, but now it’s your turn. Post a comment here and let us know what’s giving you fits in the shop. Or, send us a note at [email protected]. Either way, our experts can help you find your “A” game.
