My name is Marc J. Spagnuolo. I'm a professional woodworker, podcaster, video producer, and contributing editor for FineWoodworking.com and Popular Woodworking Magazine. Producing the Wood Whisperer is a great way for me to combine three of my passions: woodworking, technology, and education.
My company, The Wood Whisperer, Inc. is based out of Phoenix, Arizona. I focus primarily on studio furniture, but I frequently get requests for standard cabinetry, commercial work, and refinishing. I started woodworking as a hobby and read every book and magazine I could. I also took a few classes here and there. And the pinnacle of my training was my short-term apprenticeship with my good friend and mentor David J. Marks.
I am a Mac enthusiast and I create all of my podcasts using Final Cut Express, GarageBand, and my Mac Pro. My camera is a Canon XH-A1 and my microphones are Shure SM-11's for the lavalier mics and a Blue Bluebird for Wood Talk Online and voiceovers. Our lighting setup consists of two light boxes from Steve Kaeser Lighting and Accessories, although we rarely use these in our videos.
A large part of my business involves woodworking education and instruction. Most of my classes are taught in my workshop, and I periodically travel to teach at other schools and give seminars. But my primary focus these days is providing education through both video and audio podcasting.
