| Jim Harrold, Editor-In-Chief
One of the woodworking industry’s most experienced journalists, Jim Harrold brings nearly three decades of writing and woodworking to his post as editor-in-chief of Woodcraft Magazine
. His goal is to help readers learn as much about woodworking as possible through the variety of attractive projects, essential techniques, and important products found in each issue.
Prior to joining Woodcraft, Jim served as the editor of Home Plan Ideas
newsstand magazines, and headed up several building books bearing the Better Homes & Gardens name. By the mid 1980s, he managed bi-monthly Weekend Woodworking Projects
, and then became the managing editor of WOOD
magazine. Starting in 2001, he was promoted to executive editor of WOOD
and remained in that position until 2007. His woodworking background stems from his university days when he worked in construction and cabinet shops while graduating with an MA in English and MFA in Creative Writing. Today, he’s assembled the shop he’s always wanted and spends his free time there building furniture, jewelry boxes, and whatever else suits his woodworking needs.
