WOOD Magazine Editors' Blogs
As a former radio guy, my mother was thrilled to see me get a ?real job? when I joined the WOOD magazine staff in 1998 writing tool and technique articles. The pay is better now, but the groupies aren?t as cute.
Since I am self-decribed as a novice, I am trying to learn all the tips and techniques I can, while in-turn building smaller projects.
WOOD's Traveling Ambassador
Crisscrossing the country representng Wood Magazine as a lecturer and teacher has allowed me to meet a great number of Wood readers and share our facination with anything wood. I started with Wood in 1997 helping out at a woodworking trade show and have enjoyed the involvement ever since.
Tools & Techniques Editor
As the Tools Editor for WOOD magazine I test and review woodworking tools, products, and accessories that are of interest to our readers. I travel to industry trade shows and new-tool launches by manufacturers throughout the year to get the scoop on what's new and cool for woodworking. I also write technique articles for WOOD. In my spare time I like to build furniture and gift-type projects.
I've been with WOOD magazine since the tail-end of issue #1 (1984). I enjoy designing and building furniture as well as turning.
Editor In Chief
I've worked at WOOD magazine since 1988 and have been its editor-in-chief since 2001. At one time or another I've produced articles on every subject you'll find in wood: tools, techniques, tips, technology, and craftsman features.
As a Design Editor at WOOD it is my responsibility to design and build many of the projects you see featured. It is a great opportunity to work with so many people who share the passion and drive of woodworking.
I'm the Multimedia Editor here at WOOD Magazine. Among other things, it will be my job to greatly expand the subject matter and number of videos that WOOD offers on the WOODVision section of Woodmagazine.com.
I've been writing about woodworking and producing woodworking videos since 1999. My shop's in the third stall of my garage where it shares space with my other passion, my motorcycle (Yamaha FJR1300). I'm still trying to find a way to combine the two pastimes.
I like to make projects you'll never find in your local furniture store. As the techniques editor for WOOD, the only thing I enjoy more than discovering a new way of working with wood is sharing that information with our readers.
