The Forbes Faux Pas

Forbes Magazine has written a very indepth article about The Wood Whisperer.

Famous in our circles, it looked to be a pretty major step forward for woodworking bloggers.

Unfortunately, the Wood Whisperer that Forbes refers to (http://www.forbes.com/sites/richardnalley/2014/04/17/the-wood-whisperer/) is not Marc “The Wood Whisperer” Spagnuolo, but one “Frank Pollaro”. I’d include a screenshot, but I rather avoid having to argue “Fair Use” against a copyright claim.

Unfortunately for Forbes, “The Wood Whisperer” is trademarked, and not to Frank Pollaro. Oops!

Still, it’d be nice to be Frank. According to the article, he can make a dining table worth $1/2 a million, and has over $2 million worth of timber for future projects.

Wonder if he uses Triton Woodracks too?
