    Lonnie Bird
    January 2011
    Lonnie Bird is the author of a number of articles and books on furniture making, including his latest, The Complete Illustrated Guide to Using Woodworking Tools. Lonnie has been a professional woodworker for more than 30 years and has owned and operated the Lonnie Bird School of Fine Woodworking since 2002, teaching classes to a variety of skill levels. He also has a passion for making tools, having developed a number of commercial woodworking products, including a molding cutter and router bits produced by CMT and Amana, and a router-table guard licensed and produced by Benchdog. "They're spin-offs of ideas that come to mind when I'm working wood," he says. Lonnie and his family reside along with their many cats, dogs, and horses near Knoxville, TN., in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains.
