Wayne Delyea Furniture Maker says "I bought the downloadable version of the magazine and I want to take time and let everyone know that I really liked it. Well written, informative, educational and thoughtful well executed photography made this well worth what I think is a very reasonable price. I Wish it was at least quarterly vs semiannual. Good job"
Richard Garrow says "I received my copy yesterday and I must say it is very well written, very detailed, each story has a great content. The pictures look fantastic as well. I believe you going to publish this ones or twice a year is that correct? As look forward to your next issue."
Norman Pirollo offers a unique form of contemporary styled furniture incorporating contemporary and modern elements. As designer, I acquired an education from contemporary artisans as well as insight into both the visual and decorative arts. Through an equal amount of patience, attention to detail and a keen sense of design, I create striking studio furniture incorporating unique, contemporary designs. Applying accumulated skills and expertise, I pursue the design process from preliminary sketches to CAD drawings to making. I author woodworking courses and tutorials at WoodSkills. The woodworking courses are developed to distribute my extensive knowledge and expertise. I have authored woodworking books, “Start Your Own Woodworking Business”, “From Hi-Tech to Lo-Tech: A Woodworker’s Journey” and “The Wood Artist: Creating Art Through Wood“, available through WoodSkills. A design + build blog is maintained at The Refined Edge. I operate a furniture design + build studio in Ottawa, Ont.
