I am writing/taping another woodworking book/video. When I did the Router Joinery Workshop, I had a newbie friend who also happened to be an editor. If she understood and could do what I was writing about, I had a winner. That book was published in 2003, and there has not been one single request to make a change because something was found to be incorrect. I found that to be rather amazing and it was in huge part because it was 'field-proven' before it went to print.
Since this book/video will be on basic woodworking as in total newbie beginning, I would like to find someone local to mentor and quiz along the way. As I am in the beautiful mountains of Arizona 100 miles from a larger metropolitan area, finding a local is the goal.
The usual sources, like a club, or local lumber yard is not available to me to make my need public. There is a local paper in a town 20 miles away, but my experience has been that few read it, considering it relatively useless.
How does one find wanna-be's?
