Editor and Content Strategist Andrew Zoellner grew up making stuff with his family, but he didn’t catch the woodworking bug until college. After graduating from the University of Minnesota School of Journalism, he started writing for American Woodworker and learning the ropes of creating first-class how-to content (and learning all about the world of woodworking in a fantastically well-appointed shop). Since then, he’s worked at some other great DIY and craft magazines, spent some time in the music business and kept making as much stuff as he could in his spare time.
Here are some supplies and tools we find essential in our everyday work around the shop. We may receive a commission from sales referred by our links; however, we have carefully selected these products for their usefulness and quality.
