Learn How. Discover Why. Build Better.
Kevin Glen Drake After
graduating from the College of the Redwoods fine woodworking program, Kevin founded Glen-Drake Toolworks in Fort Bragg, Calif., where he combines woodworking, tool making and education. His innovative tools include the Tite-Mark marking gauge, which was named in 2003 as one of the 12 best tool values ever by Popular Woodworking editors.
Kevin thinks that woodturning skills are essential for woodworkers, and in this issue he writes about the tools required to get started, along with some of the benefits of having a lathe in your shop (page 42).
Charles Murray can usually be
found in his shop up to his ankles in shavings. He enjoys collecting and using old hand tools, especially planes, which dovetails into his work of making period furniture as well as unusual kitchen cabinets. He works mostly in the William & Mary through Shaker styles and has a particular interest in furniture from 1680-1770.
In addition to working wood for a living, he's a member of the Society of American Period Furniture Makers (SAPFM), past president of Woodworkers of Central Ohio (WOCO) and a member of Ohio Tool Collectors.
In his first story for Popular Woodworking, Charles writes about making new knobs and totes for handplanes (page 45).

Megan Fitzpatrick After
passing her exams for a Ph.D. in early modern drama, Megan took a break from writing her dissertation to build her workbench for Popular Woodworking's shop. Like all the furniture she enjoys building, Megan demanded that her bench be massive - as big as any of the other benches in the shop. Also, she insisted that its benchtop be low enough for her to use with hand-planes. The side benefit of this custom touch is that her bench is simply too low for any of the other woodwork-
ers in our shop to use. To build your own version of this bench (at the correct height for you), turn to the story that begins on page 32.
