Adam Cherubini makes furniture in 18th century styles using tools typical of the period. In addition to building furniture, he also makes tools, and serves as a Contributing Editor for "Popular Woodworking Magazine". Several of his articles were reprinted in "Hand Tool Essentials", Popular Woodworking Books 2007. You can visit him online at www.adamcherubini.com.
W. Patrick Edwards' 30 year love affair with wood and furniture has led him on a fascinating quest of discovery. The pursuit has allowed him to continually explore and evolve in the worlds of conservation, creation, teaching, consulting, and passionate appreciation of pre-industrial furniture. With the millennium he realizes that the 18th century is rapidly disappearing into the past and the process of working by hand is in danger of being forgotten. He believes that the wisdom and experience of the masters with whom he has studied must be passed on. More on his school at WpatrickEdwards.com.
Jim Tolpin has worked professionally in woodworking as a custom cabinetmaker for nearly 25 years. In the last 14 years, he has turned his attention to writing about general woodworking, cabinetmaking and home design. Jim has produced articles for most of the major woodworking magazines including Fine Woodworking and Fine Homebuilding, a regular column in CabinetMaker and Woodshop News magazines and feature articles for Coastal Living magazine. He has written eleven books in that period of time that have together sold about three-quarters of a million copies. Jim is the immediate past president of a technical writer's trade organization: The National Association for Home and Workshop Writers. Most recently, he helped found the Port Townsend School of Woodworking (www.ptwoodschool.com) where he is currently offering courses on traditional woodworking techniques.

Molly Winton, www.turningmaven.com, has been turning wood since 1998, and delving into various surface enhancement techniques (primarily pyrography and branding), since 2003. She has a strong commitment to form, and believes this is essential above all else. Teaching and sharing turning and enhancement techniques is also a passion, and when her busy family life allows, she travels to various clubs and symposiums to share her work. Inspirations for enhancements have been derived from an interest in Native American art, as well as primitive, prehistoric, cave art. Her work has been a part of many exhibits, and is available through various galleries.
