Barry NM Dima, Fine Woodworking’s associate editor, highly values FWW’s decades-long foundation of being a reader-written magazine. It’s what’s allowed him to edit and photograph such varied articles, from hand-cut tenons to template routing to mid-century modern veneered tables to Shaker dressers. As a result, he equally values casting a wide a net for varied authors. He understands proposing articles (even his own) can be tricky, and that’s just the first step; working with an editor and parsing responsibilities may be opaque too. For him, casting a wide net means first clarifying the submission, editing, and photography processes. From there, he hopes new, fresh, diverse authors will be ready and willing to get published for decades to come.
