Magazine Description

In this issue

"Our first issue of 2020 has a host of great projects, technical articles, features and brand-new kit in store for you! What a great way to kick off the New Year! In our January projects, Robert Couldwell is commissioned to make a dressing table in oak; Niall Yates rescues and repairs an Arts and Crafts nursing chair; Rick Wheaton’s simple knife bar uses powerful rare-earth magnets; Phil Davy makes skirting from hardwood; then learn how to carve your own wooden spoon with Dremel. In turning, Les Thorne makes a stunning square lidded box on a stand before Dave Roberts presents his faux bamboo cake stand. In our technical section, Robin Gates makes natural hones from rocks, experiments with ivy wood and sloe, then shapes a side bead scratch tool from a rusty saw found on the riverbank; Peter Bishop presents part 12 of his ‘Woodworker’s encyclopaedia’; and in ‘Home truths’ Edward Hopkins meets talented woodworker and Buddhist monk Ariyo Bhikkhu. Moving on to features, Organiser of the Alan Peters Furniture Award 2020, Jeremy Broun, gives his advice on photographing submitted pieces; next, in ‘Archive’ Robin Gates looks at a screen of wood shavings from The Woodworker of July 1967; Gareth Jones recounts life as a jobbing joiner in the ‘70s; in ‘Me and my workshop’ we meet 75-year-old woodworker David Plagerson; Paul Greer explores the importance of teaching woodwork in secondary schools; in ‘Modern woodworking’, Tom Fraser discusses his vision for the Chippendale International School of Furniture; and in ‘End-grain’ Edward Hopkins ponders the ‘dyslexir of life’. In ‘On test’, we’ve got all the best recommendations, starting with the Makita DTM50RM1J1 cordless multi-tool, as well as the new Bosch GET 55-125 random orbit sander (awarded the full five stars). Phil Davy also looks at FirstLightWorks’ Bevel Monkey & Big Protractor (also given five stars) before Jonathan Salisbury puts the Clarke CPS160 160mm plunge saw through its paces.
