Megan Fitzpatrick is the former editor of Popular Woodworking Magazine. She’s been an avid hand-tool woodworker for more than a decade, has built many projects for the magazine and has
helped others learn hand-tool woodworking in classes at Lie-Nielsen Toolworks and the Marc Adams School of Woodworking. She’s also assisted Chris Schwarz in numerous tool chest classes.
Megan joined the Popular Woodworking Magazine staff in 2005 as managing editor, and was
promoted to editor and content director in 2012. She is a woodworking instructor and currently
does a lot of freelance editing, mostly for books on hand-tool woodworking instruction.
She lives in Cincinnati, Ohio, with 2.75 cats, and is currently restoring a 1906 four-
square…for which she admits to sometimes using powered tools. Though her formal
education is in English literature with a concentration on early modern drama, she
promises to keep the Shakespeare references to a minimum.
