When things got out of control, I turned my obsession into a bonus for Popular Woodworking readers. The result: A 54-page version of the June 2018 article: The Complete Guide to Building the Blacker Entry Mirror

In the June 2018 Issue of Popular Woodworking, I wrote an article on building the Blacker Entry Mirror. While I was writing it, a funny thing happened. I got a little carried away. For those that know me, they understand that “going all the way” or “jumping into the deep end” isn’t all that unusual for me. In fact, it’s pretty much the norm for anything I do. So, when it came to putting the article together on the Blacker Mirror, I naturally took it a few steps further.

Normally an eight-page article would need around 2400 words and a few dozen photos. Working on it for five weeks, I took a different approach to writing it. I wrote it as if I was teaching a two-day class on the project — which I’ve done several times.
