mikewallaceI’m excited to be the newest addition to the Popular Woodworking staff. I’ve spent my career as a reporter, editor or copy desk chief for a number of newspapers, but most importantly, I’m an avid hobby woodworker. I’m the least accomplished woodworker on staff by far, but I have a passion for the subject and I’m looking forward to learning from readers and my co-workers. (Pins or tails first? Uh, how about pocket screws?)

What else? I’m a native Texan, graduated from the University of Texas, served eight years in the Texas Army National Guard, have two daughters in college, and my wife and I live in Dayton. We moved to Ohio 13 years ago and while we love it here, these winters still feel awfully cold. (And don’t get me started on Cincinnati chili – it’s a tasty dish, but please — it ain’t chili.)

And, cliché that it is, my father and both grandfathers all built things.
