Popular Woodworking Magazine has delivered articles and commentary from America’s best and brightest woodworkers for more than 30 years.

The editorial focus is a committed philosophy of hybrid woodworking – blending the best of hand tool and power tool woodworking. We bring you woodworking projects for every skill level ranging from simple (but attractive) projects that use basic joinery, to complex furniture plans using advanced woodworking techniques. Nearly every project also comes with a SketchUp model. Contributors include Roy Underhill, Christopher Schwarz, Mary May, Bob Flexner, Toshio Odate, Gary Rogowski and many more.

The magazine is published six times annually- 5 regular-sized issues, and 1 double-sized issue, and is available digitally as well as in print – plus back issues can be explored throughout our website. We also send out a free weekly woodworking newsletter.

Safety Note: Safety is your responsibility. Manufacturers place safety devices on their equipment for a reason. In many photos you see in Popular Woodworking Magazine, these have been removed to provide clarity. In some cases we’ll use an awkward body position so you can better see what’s being demonstrated. Don’t copy us. Think about each procedure you’re going to perform beforehand.

  • Danielle Lowery
    Danielle Lowery Senior Graphic Designer

    Since a young girl, Danielle has always had a passion for the arts. Dance, music, and art – she loves it all! Now her passion layers solely in the arts including graphic design, illustration, strained glass work, and most recently woodworking. She’s not the only artist in her family though. Her passion comes directly from her mother who also encouraged her father to get into woodworking. Together the three love to create unique, homemade gifts for their family and friends. When Danielle isn’t designing, she’s being an artist. So it’s safe to say, she lives, breathes, and sleeps art!

  • Collin Knoff Digital Editor

  • Logan Wittmer
    Logan Wittmer Editor in Chief

    Logan’s true love, apart from his family, is the craft of woodworking. Having caught the woodworking bug in middle school, Logan attended the University of Northern Iowa studying Graphic Communications with the intent of, one day, working at a woodworking magazine. After spending a portion of his career in the print industry, Logan became an assistant editor at Woodsmith magazine before taking the reigns at Popular Woodworking. During the spring and fall, Logan’s often found on the water or in the woods hunting and fishing. When summer rolls around, Logan’s often found outside, late into the evenings, covered in sweat and sawdust, running his sawmill.
