Yes, Autumn may soon be upon us, but worry not, as we provide you with a great range of varied projects, technical articles, profiles to excite, and tests to make you want to part with your hard-earned cash. While we’re sad to say goodbye to our cover star, John Bullar’s excellent beginners’ guide to furniture making series, we’re pleased to report that he’ll be back in a few issues’ time with a brand-new series, so don’t miss out! Projects for you to get your teeth into this month include a wonderful toy wooden camera; a lovely acorn pendant, made using scrap pieces of wood; a decking build that is perfect for al fresco woodworking. In terms of techniques, we’ve got it all covered, as Dave Roberts returns with the next instalment in his ‘What the Dickens…’ series, John Bullar looks at preparing and treating the wooden surfaces of furniture; John McMahon shows how it’s possible to design your ideal workshop for less than the price of a takeaway meal (depending on how you look at it!). In ‘People & Places’, we look at a stunning console table from Sam Carter’s ‘Arching Collection’; find out more about the work of chairmaker Michael Brown. We also find the time to check out some top kit for you, including the Triton TJS001 jigsaw, which features a powerful three-stage 750W motor; the Ernst Socket Boss, which is designed to keep sockets visible and accessible; the Bosch GLI 18V-1900 worklight, an ideal piece of kit for site work or a small workshop; and if you fancy giving your decked area and garden woodwork a splash of colour, then Rainbow Chalk’s Shabby Chic Garden & Decking Paints’ range of water-based colours will certainly do a sterling job - you can even win a tin of the Decking Paint yourself! As well as all this, you’ll also find all your usual favourite pages, including news and courses, letters and makers, and our next month page gives you an elusive glimpse at GW323.
