The first issue of 2012 contains a host of projects for you to make including a vase that can be made in three different ways, using three different treatments; a twisted stem goblet; a sculptured flared vessel and a carved hollow form. In terms of techniques, Kurt Hertzog shares his top 20 tips for producing better pens, before we look at using vacuum chucking systems and Michael O'Donnell shows us how to make two more chess pieces for his turned chess set. Finally, we look at keeping your timber and converting it at home.

The features section includes part three of Richard Findley's series of a year in the life of a professional woodturner; William Holland shares his views on woodturning from an American perspective; we spend 20 minutes with Antone Forneris and Jim Scarsella shares one of his stunning pieces with us.

In terms of kit and tools, we have a host of new products for your workshop; we look at the Mid Size Easy Hollowers from Easy Wood Tools, before we look at two tools from Thompson Lathe Tools and finally, we test a polish from Mylands.

And if that's not enough, we also have the usual favourites including leader, Readers' Gallery, Community Comments and Round Up.

All this and more in issue 235!
