It is now February, 2013, and I thought I had lots of time for a writing deadline. Not so. I'll soon have a post up for Tom Iovino of Tom's Workbench fame, a noted blogger and woodworking enthusiast. He has sponsored and instigated a push for wanna-be woodworkers, encouraging them to Get Started and not be intimidated with, "But, where do I begin?"
What is different this year is the assistance of several very big magazine names and vendors who want to offer prizes for the best story of a new woodworker, within the last year's time. Here is a link to what Get Woodworking Week is all about, and Tom's words on qualifying for his contest:
Tom's Get Woodworking Week
Get Woodworking Week Prizes

OK, here’s how this will work. If you are a woodworker who has been
in the craft for one year or less, send me an e-mail at
email@example.com and explain how you got into the craft. On

the entries that I get and pick the new woodworker with the best story
Stay tuned. There are lots of good articles coming up this week for your interest and delight!
