Mark Schofield

Twenty-five years after rowing for his college 1st Vlll at Oxford University, Fine Woodworking managing editor Mark Schofield was lured back to the water by his wife. Now a member of a rowing club located, ironically, in Oxford, Conn., he sculls a single on the Housatonic River. While the location may have changed, he still objects strongly to rowing before 7 a.m.


Schofield is also an experienced furniture maker with a growing expertise in finishing. When he joined Fine Woodworking in the summer of 2000, he was made responsible for the finishing articles and has accrued hundreds of hours watching experts such as Peter Gedrys, Jeff Jewitt, Teri Masaschi, and Chris Minick work their magic.
