Iconic Design – Wharton Esherick
Now that the June 2013 issue of Popular Woodworking Magazine is off the newsstand, I’m free to share one of my favorite articles from it (for the no doubt very few of you who read this blog but don’t read the magazine).
It’s Chuck Bender’s piece on Wharton Esherick. Not only does Chuck do a great job of introducing this iconic figure of art and woodworking (and woodworking artistry), his surprising affinity with Esherick’s work is, quite simply, lovely.
Plus, I’ve admired Esherick’s library stairs since I was in pigtails. (And now, I might actually be able to build them…the stairs, not the pigtails.)

The August 2013 issue mailed just moments ago (2:22 p.m. EDT, June 12) to digital subscribers and should be arriving beginning later this week to print subscribers (you can see the cover now on our Facebook page).
p.s. To find out what else is in the June issue that I’m not giving away for free (sorry, gotta buy cat food), visit our Online Extras page for the issue at popularwoodworking.com/jun13.
