Whittling his way to the top

Persistence paid off in a big way for Roland Johnson of Sauk Rapids.

Johnson, a professional woodworker for more than 30 years, is featured on the cover of Tools & Shops, an annual publication of Fine Woodworking. Fine Woodworking is considered the premiere magazine for woodworkers in the world, Johnson said.

Tom Young of Foley, a friend of Johnson’s, saw the magazine at an airport. Young immediately bought it.

“I think it’s great,” Young said. “Anyone who makes the front cover of a national magazine is terrific.”
