Megan Fitzpatrick’s new workbench is on the cover of the November 2009 issue of Popular Woodworking, which will be mailing to subscribers soon (I don’t want to be more specific than that). Of course, having a woman woodworker on the cover threw some people in our publishing organization for a loop.
“What? Where’s the middle-aged balding guy in a flannel shirt? You’re putting a woman on the cover in a down economy? Are you a mole for Fine Woodworking?”
Don’t worry. There are tons of middle-age guys featured on the inside of the magazine. I know that’s the real reason you buy woodworking magazines.
OK, back on track here. We’ve just posted a video tour of Megan’s new workbench, which is made from laminated veneer lumber (LVL). We’re teasing her mercilessly about it. Be sure to count the number of times she flips her hair. And be sure to wait for the satanic cackle at the end.
And please buy the issue!
