Not many woodworking magazines can boast having a rocket scientist on staff, but at FWW, we have Bill Peck. As shop manager, Peck maintains the machines, manages the inventory for tool tests, and helps editors with anything shop-related. Peck has always loved woodworking, and took it up in earnest when he retired from his first career in the defense industry, where he was part of a team that designed and built ballistic missiles. His engineering acumen has been invaluable in our shop. Bill recently made a big, traditional workbench for his shop. Check out his blog about it at FineWoodworking.com/extras.
