In this month's Woodworking Plans & Projects, John Bullar makes a simple oak stool using bridle joints, while Alan Holtham makes a mini garden shed, perfect for all your garden tools. Anthony Bailey makes a letter rack in this month's RouterCentric, and Walter Hall shows you how to make a first-class pen with only basic turning skills and tools. Simon Rodway makes four basic workshop aids which will help you with The Editor's Hand Built project, where he shows you how to make your own block plane, and finally, Paul Bignell carves some animal corbel shelf brackets. In techniques, James Hatter teaches you all about wood flooring, Walter Hall covers disc and belt sanders in Machine Workshop, and The Editor shares some hints on hand tool care. Features include selected extracts from Rupert Newman's book, Oak-Framed Buildings, Colin Sullivan takes a look at the wheel brace - the power drill's manual predecessor, and in My Working Day we find about none other than Anthony Bailey!
On test we look at a new jigsaw from Einhell, Irwin vices, and Castle Pocket Routers. As always, we've got Hot Stuff - our monthly roundup of the best tools, gadgets and gizmos on the market, plus the latest news and events in the woodworking world.
