In the September issue of Woodworking Plans & Projects, Peter Brett replaces a timeworn garden store, while Jim Hooker makes a wonderful Arts & Crafts-inspired silks chest. The Editor makes an inlaid clock in this month's RouterCentric and Amber Bailey creates a decorative tissue-box holder using marquetry techniques. Get a hoe-down going with Chris Gleason's ukulele project, which is made entirely of pallet wood, and store your knives in style with Jim Robinson's kitchen knife block. Finally, Simon Rodway shows you how to make a versatile stacking storage set. We kick off a new series that will cover all you need to know about finishing, and Anthony Bailey imparts a few tips on tailoring your bench to your needs. James Hatter's DIY Solutions this month focuses on fitting out a workshop. Features this month include student furniture maker Patrick Morris and his beautiful Guimard-inspired chair; we look at some old firmer chisels in Tools of Yesteryear, and we bring you a roundup of the best books in the world of wood… 

On test, we've got six of the best random orbital sanders, we take a close look at the Einhell TH-SM 2131 dual saw and Zapkut's vertical panel saws, as well as Hot Stuff – our monthly review of the best in tools, gadgets and gizmos. We let you know what's happening in the world of wood, and, as the closing date gets ever nearer, we bring you details on how to enter the Triton Woodworker and Young Woodworker of the year competitions!
