Meet Our Gang: The Sawdust & Banter Dream Team

At SimpleWoodworker, we’re excited to roll out the red carpet for our extraordinary team of writers, each equipped with over two decades of practical woodworking experience. Having donned the woodworker’s apron themselves, our experts are all too familiar with the obstacles that arise from the scarcity of trustworthy and accessible information.

Handpicked by Jonathan, our spirited squad is itching to impart their hard-won wisdom to you. They’re committed to serving up content that’s not only engaging and insightful but also tailored to propel you toward woodworking success. Assembled, we’re a force to be reckoned with – a woodworking tour de force on a quest to empower, inspire, and stoke the flames of your passion for this time-tested craft, all while adding a dash of humor to keep things lively!

Jonathan Warshaw

Hey there, I’m Jonathan! Welcome to my woodworking playground! I stumbled into the world of woodworking as a young apprentice, and ever since then, I’ve been hooked. With over 15 years of experience under my (tool)belt, I’ve worked on a ton of projects and turned woodworking into my personal art form.

As I’ve honed my skills and tackled projects left and right, I’ve also picked up a quirky sense of humor along the way. I’m super proud of my ability to craft and install ornamental trims and millwork – it’s like leaving my own personal stamp on each project, and it never gets old.

My passion for woodworking led me to create SimpleWoodworker.com, a space for woodworkers of all experience levels to hang out, learn, and have a good laugh. I’m all about making woodworking fun, approachable, and just a little bit cheeky. Trust me, when it comes to learning, laughter is the secret sauce!

So, come along for the ride as we dive into the fantastic world of woodworking, share some laughs, and make unforgettable memories together. Let’s get those saws buzzing!

Eric Gould

Please meet, Eric, our go-to guy for all things outdoor woodworking! With 20 years of hands-on experience, Eric become a master at crafting eye-catching outdoor structures. He has had the privilege of working with big-name construction companies like Turner Construction and Skanska.

Eric sharpened his skills at the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking, and now he’s here to share his knowledge with you. When he is not busy creating, you’ll find him upgrading his daughters’ (ages 5 and 7) backyard playhouses. Join Eric as we explore the exciting world of woodworking together!

William Solly

Let me introduce you to our woodworking legend, William! With an incredible 35 years of experience, he’s truly a master of the craft. William’s expertise spans all aspects of woodworking, but his heart truly lies in millwork and crafting unique cabinets for homes.

Fun fact: William used to be an ER doctor, but his passion for construction and carpentry couldn’t be tamed. He spent his days sawing, staining, sandblasting, and carving while saving lives at night. We fondly call him Grandpa Will, and he’s our go-to guy when tackling challenging projects.

Nowadays, William enjoys life with his wife Lisa and their two adorable Yorkies in upstate NY. He’s built a jaw-dropping 5,000 sqft workshop where he spends his days doing what he loves most—creating stunning millwork. Let William’s passion, skill, and experience inspire you on your woodworking journey!
