The CMA is giving away a 3M Random Orbital Sander. To enter the drawing, all you have to do is submit a tip from your cabinet shop.
FDMC has asked us to supply a monthly column in their magazine that highlights a single, simple tip from a custom cabinet shop. The tips could include methods of work, marketing or business procedures, use of materials, dealing with customers, design, or anything else that is a practical solution for a cabinet shop. The column should be about 300 words, first person, with the shop person telling “here’s how I do it in our shop.” The practical benefit should be emphasized. The column will appear in the print and digital magazine as well as on their websites.
Anyone who has already submitted a tip and it has been published is included in the drawing. Anyone else who submits a tip and it gets published will also be in the drawing. The drawing will be held next summer.
Submit your tip(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also provide your head shot along with a photograph or drawing to illustrate the tip.
