The Ambitious Approach
by Drew Langsner
Several years back I contacted my friend John Lavine who was then the editor of “Woodwork Magazine.” I wanted to know if John would be interested in publishing a spoon carving article. Not an ordinary 1-3 page piece, but something that really goes into detail. John agreed. I went to work, writing and taking the photos of myself.
The result was something of a monster. Many pages long and with lots of photographs plus a few drawings. The problem became where to put it. What issue could devote so many pages to just one subject? While on the backburner, “Woodwork” closed shop.
I then decided to contact Nick Gibbs, the editor of the new English magazine “Living Woods.” Nick said ‘great, if we can divide it into 2 issues.’ Making a Ladle needed a home, and I like Nick’s magazine. Part 1 appeared in the May/June 2009 issue. Nick provided a pdf file for our web site. Links for all three parts appear below.
