Joe Cruz is a contributing editor for Family Handyman Magazine, creating DIY how-to & home improvement projects for both digital and print. Joe started woodworking at an early age, finding himself in carpentry jobs such as building and remodeling houses, woodworking jobs such as custom cabinetry and kitchen installation, and artisan positions involving props work for theaters and artful exhibit building for national museums. Although Joe is also a fine furniture maker, his real passions are music and woodturning, with original compositions on streaming platforms and woodturnings featured in various art shows and galleries.
