Bryan Nelson has been making wood chips and sawdust since junior high and currently contributes to WOOD magazine. He worked for more than 20 years as the Editorial Media Director for ShopNotes and Woodsmith magazines, and the Woodsmith Shop show on Iowa Public Television. He and his wife recently settled down in the Springfield, Mo. area after having explored the country in their Airstream travel trailer for the last four years. He's currently building out a new woodshop to keep the sawdust flowing in his veins.
