I came to work at Popular Woodworking Magazine in a roundabout way. I spent most of my adult life working with wood professionally, and along the way I read a lot of books and magazines. I was passionate about furniture of the Arts & Crafts period, and wished there was a book of measured drawings similar to books of drawings of other styles. SDFCFAfter 20 years or so, I decided to write one. My first book, “Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture,” was published in 2001 and was successful enough to enable a second book of furniture drawings, “More Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture,” a book on built-ins, trim and doors titled “Shop Drawings for Craftsman Interiors” and a fourth book, “Shop Drawings for Craftsman Inlays & Hardware.” I stumbled on an online job posting by then-editor Christopher Schwarz who had built a piece from my second book for the magazine. To make a long story short, I landed here in Cincinnati almost nine years ago.
