On Sale Today - Woodturning issue 255

Thursday 20 June 2013


In the July issue of Woodturning, Mark Sanger makes an Oriental-inspired box; Richard Findley is commissioned to make a replacement architectural roof finial; Sue Harker turns a pair of polyester salt & pepper shakers; Philip Greenwood creates a trinket box using only basic tools and Paul Hannaby makes a rustic desk tidy.

In terms of techniques, Kurt Hertzog shares the importance of understanding the material you are working wood and how as a woodturner, you should always be "thinking grain" and we have part 3 of Geoff Whaling's 'woodturning safety' articles, and this month he looks at the subject of implementing controls.

In our features section we have a profile on the Japanese-inspired turnings of Michael Scarborough, and for our Featured Artist, we have Jacques Vesery and several pieces from this 'Diversity in the Round' series.

In kit & tools, we have a test on the Kelton sharpening system and we also put the Advanced Lathe Tools Hollowing System through its paces.

As well as all this, we also have all your favourite pages including 'Round & About', 'Next Issue', 'Readers' Gallery' and also details of the Triton Woodworker and Triton Young Woodworker of the Year competitions 2013.
