Woodworking magazines matter.
The American Institute of Woodworkers is the premier organization of its kind in the United States.
And it does so with an emphasis on quality, sustainability and the values of community and the outdoors.
The magazine covers all aspects of woodworking and is the perfect companion for those seeking a hands-on education.
“We are the premier woodworking education magazine in the world,” said AIBW Vice President of Communications and Communications Manager and Publisher Chris Smith.
“The magazine covers everything from learning how to cut wood, how to carve, to make wood furniture and how to care for and use wood.
It is the bible for woodworkers, whether they are a hobbyist or someone looking to get their feet wet.”
In the last few years, AIBWs editorial staff has expanded to include an editor and a photographer, along with two photographers and a woodworker.
The new editors have been selected by AIBWF staff, and they are committed to expanding their coverage to the entire woodworking community, Smith said.
“When it comes time to choose the next editor and photographer, we ask our members, ‘What are you looking for in an editor?’ and ‘What is the vision for the magazine?'”
Smith said, adding that the AIBw has always been dedicated to the advancement of woodworkers and their communities.
“Our membership is constantly being reviewed and updated to reflect what is important to us.
Woodworking is not a niche hobby, but we believe Woodworking Magazine is the ultimate resource for all woodworking enthusiasts, from newbies to experts.”
