Jimmy Carter was first featured in Fine Woodworking in 1984 (#46) and over the years has continued to show up in the Readers Gallery and as a featured author. Mr. Carter currently keeps busy building furniture and homes for Habitat for Humanity, and has recently taken up painting. In 2002, the Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded Mr. Carter the Nobel Peace Prize for his decades of untiring effort in finding peaceful solutions to international conflicts, advancing democracy and human rights, and promoting economic and social development. In spite of all the success he has achieved as a naval officer, farmer, governor, president, statesman, and Nobel laureate, Mr. Carter remains simply an aspiring woodworker at heart, and we welcome his fine work to our pages.
