What's Inside the May 2012 Issue of Creative Woodworks & Crafts...
from the editor
As someone who loves reading and enjoys the nuances of language, it’s no surprise that the word art projects featured in the magazine often hold special appeal for me. The two projects in this May issue of Creative Woodworks & Crafts are no exception. While individually the two pieces are striking, when viewed together, they offer a refreshing reminder of the fact that popular culture isn’t always right, as they challenge the commonly-held concept that fun and beauty are for the young only!

It’s interesting to note that as we read through the submissions for our readers’ gallery feature, it’s clear that many members of our woodworking family already recognize these facts. A large number of our readers have come to the craft only in retirement, after years of having successful and rewarding careers in completely different fields—often ones that allowed for little creative input. These folks understand that age doesn’t need to hold you back from trying something new and bringing beauty into the world. So to all of our “90-years-young” woodworkers (and those of us simply beyond our “twenty-somethings!”), enjoy these two projects that are truly tributes to the meaning and beauty of lives well lived!
