Magazine Description

In this issue

Well, Christmas is getting closer by the day, and what better way to celebrate than with our December issue! Featuring three Christmas-themed projects for you to make either over the festive season or before it, you’ll love our handmade ribbon box, our incredibly fun snow couple, and our festive candle holder designs, which will be perfect for that last-minute present or surprise table decoration. But it’s not all about Christmas! We also have a great turning project from Les Thorne, as he shows you how to make two different vase designs, each with a different shaped contrasting final. In our technical section, John Bullar looks at choosing and using planer/thicknessers; Dave Roberts is back at work on The Old Vic. In ‘People & Places’, and in keeping with the Christmas theme, we meet Jamie Kunka (also this month’s cover star) of Lonely Mountain Skis, who we discover is making a name for himself as one of the most exciting hand-crafted wooden ski-makers around. We also find out more about Marc Fish’s furniture school relaunch and take a look at Howard Butler’s fantastic treasure chest, which is this month’s ‘Centrefold’. Seeing as the festive season is so close, what better opportunity to consult our test section and find some kit to put on your Christmas list! You’re spoilt for choice this month as we take a look at Axminster’s sturdy pair of sawhorses and the Pinie double mortise marking gauge, or how about the Trend T35 M-Class dust extractor? And last but not least, we bring you another fantastic competition, courtesy of Gartmore House. This amazing prize gives you and a friend the chance to visit the stunning property, set in Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, and undertake either a two- or a five-night woodworking activity holiday, worth one £1,100! Further details can be found in the magazine, so good luck and get entering! As well as all of the above, we also have all your favourite pages before giving you a glimpse at our first issue of 2018!
