Rob Johnstone has been part of Woodworker’s Journal’s since 1997, becoming editor of the print magazine in 1998, editor in chief in 2007 and publisher in 2013. He began woodworking at age 13 in his family-owned cabinet shop and, as an adult, trained to become an accomplished luthier. He eventually opened his own cabinetry and custom fine woodworking business. Rob has brought many of the most well-known authors in woodworking to the Journal’s pages and introduced Woodworker’s Journal Online Survey. When, in his free time, Rob isn’t woodworking, he enjoys hunting for sharp-tailed grouse with his bird dog, playing music and/or listening to his son’s rock band and cooking on his high-tech stove.
