Magazine Description

In this issue

If you fancy making some handy projects for your workshop as well as some that are more functional, then look no further than our August issue. Peter Harrison’s rustic wine rack, which houses 12 of your favourite bottles; Mike McCrory’s makes a wonderful bespoke growth chart for a young family member. In our technical section, with work on The Old Vic’s sash window looming on summer’s horizon, Dave Roberts takes a timely lesson in compromise; Peter Bishop moves on to looking at harvesting timber ready for conversion. Andy King jets off to Berlin find out what new developments Milwaukee have up their sleeves; and in ‘End-grain’, we ask if the projects you make demonstrate spontaneity. We also have some great kit on the test bench, including the impressive Axminster AT1016VS lathe, which would be ideal for any professional or serious amateur turner, along with the Axminster Woodturning Starter Kit SK100 chuck package, which features a robust stainless steel construction. The Milwaukee M12PP2A 12V Fuel twin kit is another impressive newcomer and Stubai’s five-piece chip carving set represents great value for money. Phil Davy also takes a look at the Mirka Aros sander, which he thinks could be a handy addition for musical instrument makers, perhaps even antique restorers - certainly anyone dealing with a range of different materials. And to top it all off, we also have a great competition that gives you the opportunity to win an Axminster Hobby Series HBS200N bandsaw - worth over £185. So pick up a copy of our August issue to find out how you can enter - good luck!
