EDITOR’S BIOS
WOOD Magazine takes great pride in bringing readers woodworking projects of quality. It’s the breadth and depth of our staff’s experience, along with their commitment to excellence that sets us apart. Together, they’re the significant difference that has earned WOOD the rock-solid confidence and trust of our readers. Here are just a few of members of the WOOD editorial team.
Dave Champbell Dave Campbell
Editorial Content Chief
Like so many WOOD readers, Dave’s love of woodworking began at his daddy’s knee. In fact, some of Dave’s earliest memories are as a youngster with a hammer or saw in hand. That hands-on approach has served him (and WOOD readers) well: Since joining the WOOD team in 1998, Dave researched and executed nearly every tool test in the magazine for the next 8 years. Now as Editorial Content Chief, he supervises production of all of the editorial content of WOOD Magazine, WOOD Online, and the WOOD E-newsletter, ensuring that each article meets our high standards of completeness and clarity. Dave also oversees WOOD’s video efforts, including DVDs and WOODCuts free woodworking videos (which bring to life many of the techniques presented in the pages of WOOD Magazine), and WOODTube, where readers post their own videos.
Bob Hunter Bob Hunter
Tools and Techniques Editor
Bob Hunter learned his woodworking skills from an early age on an Indiana farm. One of three sons of a farmer/carpenter, Bob helped build houses— even designing two of them—and later began to build small furniture pieces. After getting a degree in journalism, Bob worked as a newspaper sports editor and farmer before joining WOOD, all the while remodeling two old homes and further developing his woodworking skills. Bob’s primary responsibilities at WOOD revolve around producing tool-related articles and videos for the magazine and web site. In his spare time Bob likes to build Shaker-style furniture and small box-joint or dovetailed boxes for gifts, and turns bowls on a lathe.
