What’s Your Woodworking Story?

booksDo you have a great woodworking story to tell? Do you like having a chance to get free stuff?

I’m guessing the answer is “yes” to both questions. Your writing about woodworking could win you a copy of the four-volume set of “The Practical Woodworker” (a must-have foundation set of books for the woodworker interested in early 20th-century woodworking techniques, edited by Bernard Jones.)

For the storytelling part, I am seeking submissions for our “End Grain” column featured in each issue. End Grain is typically a thought-provoking or amusing one-page article (500 words or so) that reflects on any aspect of woodworking. Unique topics or treatments are especially welcome. It’s a great way to break into print (and digital).

The best End Grain submission (as determined by the editorial staff) received by midnight Dec. 31, 2014, will win the books. The writer of any End Grain column we accept for publication also will be paid with real money. Money that could be used to buy more tools, wood, or even – should you be so frivolous – household bills.

Send your End Grain submissions to Mike.Wallace@fwcommunity.com, with the words “end grain” somewhere in the subject line.

You can also mail submissions to:
