Magazine Description

In this issue

"Welcome to our Autumn Special, which promises to deliver a whole host of exciting woodworking and woodturning gems that are sure to inspire and keep you busy during the chillier months to come! In our projects and turning section, Grace Silverwood puts the finishing touches to her rocking hippo; Shaun Newman describes how the soundboard of his ‘air guitar’ should be made, braced and fitted; next, Michael Forster sets about making the final components for his craft table; Dave Roberts turns a decorative wall sconce; Phil Davy works out how to restore the moulding on panelled church doors; and last but not least, Les Thorne adds a dark airbrushed rim to his stunning Canadian quilted maple platter. If techniques are more your thing, in the next woodworker’s encyclopaedia, Peter Bishop talks about cluster knots and converting logs into lumber; before Robin Gates makes simple things from windfallen and discarded wood found close to home, and shares his impressions of the Flexcut Carvin’ Jack. Moving on to features, in ‘Archive’, Robin Gates looks at a guide to the newfangled iron planes making British woodies obsolete; in ‘Me & my workshop’ we meet furniture conservator Tony Vernon; next, in the first of a new series, Gareth Jones recounts the story of being commissioned by a lord of the manor to repair a rather rotted orangery; before Anselm Fraser advises making furniture that works, but taking the functional and adding in something a little bit special or unusual; also, Paul Greer shares a wonderful feature on the story of the Women’s Timber Corps, or ‘Lumberjills’ as they were affectionately known; and in ‘End-grain’, Edward Hopkins has an unfortunate pain in the neck… As with every issue, we have some of the hottest new kit on the test bench, including the redeveloped Bosch FlexiClick GSR 12V-35 FC system, Axminster AC200BG bench grinder, plus FastCap GluBot 16oz and the iGaging Snap-check and digital read-out gauge."
