Learn How. Discover Why. Build Better.
Trevor Smith A good middle-school shop teacher got Trevor hooked on woodworking. Now, after years in his own shop and in classes with Alan Lacer, David Marks, Garrett Hack and the like, he enjoys making unique pieces for his home and shop, including a custom workbench, band saw boxes and a plane box, as well as "commissioned" pieces for his brother's professional kitchen. He also teaches sharpening at his local Woodcraft store, and has to sharpen all his children's kitchen knives. Recently, he's been teaching woodworking to his oldest granddaughter, and has become interested in turning.
By day, Trevor is a physics teacher who values the process of learning through doing - as his students do when they build boomerangs (the story is on page 52).
Ethan Sincox Fairly new to woodworking, Ethan aspires to the level of quality and attention to detail his grandfather achieved as a life-long woodworker and artist.
When Ethan isn't providing software support, working on his honey-do list or editing the St. Louis Woodworkers Guild newsletter, he is always looking for ways to combine his joys in life - kilts, writing and woodworking. He spends his occasional bit of free time hunting for old tools at estate sales and auctions. You can read more about his work at greystonegreen.blogspot.com.
In this story, his first for Popular Woodworking, Ethan muses about the woodworking he doesn't like to do (page 80).
Christopher Schwarz In addition to
his full-time job as editor of Popular Woodworking and Woodworking Magazine, Chris has his own publishing company, Lost Art Press. For this issue of the magazine, he wrote the "Best New Tools of 2009" story on page 57. In his spare time, he's been working on reprinting "The Joiner and Cabinet Maker," a charming tale from 1839 that tells the story of young Thomas, an apprentice in an early 19th-century rural English shop. It's the earliest book to give detailed instruction on the basics of hand-tool woodworking, and the original has been reprinted along with step-by-step instruction from Chris on building the projects therein, with detailed footnotes and a chapter on early 19th-century British history by Joel Moskowitz. Find out more about the book and read an excerpt at lostartpress.com.
