Matt Kenney - A teacher of philosophy before he started working as an editor at Fine Woodworking, Matt Kenney began building furniture as a hobby. His first big project was a crib for his daughter constructed on a 2 ft. by 10 ft. apartment balcony. Then Matt met Joe Mazurek, a professional furniture maker in Camden, S.C., who, according to Matt, “taught me almost everything I know about the craft.”
