Nathaniel (Nate) | Owner
“I think I picked up a hammer at the same time as I took my first step. My dad was a building handyman and there was no shortage of jobs to do. He taught me everything and I’ve never looked back.
I started Woodwork Advice as a way to share my knowledge with others. My goal is to show people how to choose good products and what to do with them.”
Marguerite | Writer
“I never knew women could be good at making things until I decided to try to build a storage crate. It was the most fun I’d ever had. My friends laughed at my excitement and I knew I wanted to do two things: 1) Learn more about building things, and 2) Share what I already knew.
This site is the perfect place to do both and I learn something new everyday. Plus I get to chat with people who understand this drive inside of me.”
Tomas | Writer
“By day, I’m a data analyst. I know, how boring, right? Anyway, when I’m not working, I’m working on something. Usually something that requires a whole lot of tools.
I’m the one everyone calls when they need something fixed. If I don’t know how, I’ll figure it out. So, writing for Woodwork Advice gives me plenty of tools and knowledge to improve my skill set. I love writing and reading about things that inspire me.”
Miranda | Editor
“I'm not gonna lie. Before starting here, I didn’t know much about woodworking. But as a single mama of three, I’m always up for learning about something I can take care of myself.
Sometimes I’m amazed at the things I’ve learned through editing.The passion and dedication of the team really comes through the finished articles and I’m proud to be part of it.”
Steven | Brand Manager
Known as the “web guy” behind the scenes, Steven keeps the technical aspects up and running and has been our brand manager since the early days. His favorite hobbies include golf and spending time with his basset hound, Hank.

How Does This All Work?
It’s natural to wonder how we do what we do. Do we know what we’re talking about? Where do we get our info? Who is writing the articles?
Well, in short, our team researches what people are interested in and determines what topics to cover. Next comes more research to find the best products to match.
Then, our expert writers step in and write the content, review the products, and produce the articles you find on our site. Each piece fits together perfectly to give you honest reviews on products and reputable information to help you out.
How Are Products Chosen?
Ok, all of this isn’t as easy as it sounds. Many hours go into the search to find the best products out there at the time of the writing. We also consult others in the woodworking field and related forums like Lumberjocks and Woodworking Talk to find out what’s being talked about. Then we scour customer reviews to see what actual users think.
Then we narrow it down based on these criteria and review the chosen products. It’s a complex task but one we don’t take lightly.
Who Writes Content?
Well, you’ve already met our team above. All of our writers have some degree of interest and knowledge in woodworking. This keeps the articles relatable across all levels for readers.
The team members above aren’t the entire team but represent the dedication of the entire team, even those who wish to remain behind the scenes.
How Does Woodwork Advice Make Money?
Obviously, as much as we love this site, we couldn’t do it without making money to pay our team. Our profits come from two places; Ads we run on our pages and affiliate links.
Most of our affiliate links are through Amazon, where we make a small commission if you use our link to purchase from them. We may partner with other affiliates in the same manner, as well. Therefore, we want to get it right, so we both benefit from your purchase.
Do We Get Paid to Review Products?
Never. While occasionally, a company will send us a product to review, our review is always 100% honest based on our experience with the item. However, we never receive payment for the review.
Do Brands Pay Us for Better Rankings?
Absolutely not! This is an awful, deceptive practice and would quickly drive away readers. We use our own criteria to evaluate the products and rank them honestly, regardless of brand. This keeps the playing field level for brands and readers.
