Matt KenneyMatt Kenney

Matt Kenney has been making things from wood his entire life. About 15 years ago, when he was a poor and recently married graduate student with plans for a philosophy professorship, he began to make furniture. He was still bumbling along when a generous professional furniture maker in Camden, S.C., (Joe Mazurek) took him into his shop and taught him to cut dovetails, make doors, and hammer veneer. For the last six years, Kenney has been an editor at FWW. He lives in Watertown, Conn., with his wife, Janet, and two children.
