Issue Four T.O.C. – Jarrod Dahl’s “The Quest for Mastery Through Production Work”


Every weekday until the February 1st opening of Issue Four pre-orders, we will be announcing one article from the table of contents here on the blog. If you have yet to sign up for a yearly subscription, you can do so here.

 

My article titled 'The Quest for Mastery Through Production Work' highlights some of the major events, teachers, and experiences that shaped me during my career as a woodworker and maker/designer of utilitarian objects. I share my ideas of mastery and how it can be cultivated through incorporating 'production work' into the workflow.

I hope that sharing my stories about this approach will turn people on to the idea that it’s ok to make lots of things back to back. In fact, there are many insights and opportunities to learn from it that can take our work to the next level. I also hope that my article will inspire anyone who is searching for ways to increase their skill level, efficiency or focus to set themselves up with a production run in the future.
