On May 20, 2011, I wrote an encomium for a friend and co-worker who was leaving the staff to work full-time in his own shop on a large, long-term, multi-piece commission project…that he’s now wrapping up. I’m far happier to be writing this post.
Please join me in welcoming (back) to Popular Woodworking Magazine our new managing editor, Glen D. Huey.
As you may know, Glen has been associated with Popular Woodworking since 1997, when his first published project appeared in the November issue – and he’s been writing for the magazine, and publishing books and videos with us ever since. In 2006, Glen joined the staff full-time as a senior editor, a position he held through the October 2011 issue production cycle (after which he became a contributing editor).
I mentioned when I said goodbye to him in 2011 that Glen is the best writing student I’ve ever had. Now, I expect he’ll also become the best copy editing student I’ve ever had – and I know he’ll embrace the many other duties of the job with equal verve and ability. (And I will embrace letting them go.)
I can’t wait to see Glen’s smiling face (and the rest of him) walk through the door on Feb. 11 – his first day on the new job. I’m delighted to welcome him back – and hope you are, too.

p.s. Glen’s e-mail address will be firstname.lastname@example.org – but it won’t be active until he starts.
