The October issue features Rob Stoakley's Alan Peters' inspired Japanese floor lamp as our main project this month, but we also have a wide range of technique articles on offer, including David Charlesworth on Magswitch MagJigs; Derek Jones looks at sharpening planer/thicknesser knives; Charles Mak and Chris Wong handle a number of grain challenges and we have part 2 of Michael Huntley's series on restoring a 'swing' mirror back to its former glory.
In our design & inspiration section, we have the first in a new series of articles on 'tools for design'; we bring you the shortlist of entries in the furniture categories for the Wood Awards 2013; we spend 20 minutes talking to hand tool enthusiast and author Christopher Schwarz; Michael Huntley pays a trip to Bridgwater College, and we bring you the first in a new series of lots to recently go under the hammer, in terms of antique tools and pieces of furniture.
As well as all this, as also have your usual favourites, including 'from the editor', 'news & events' as well as all the latest tools and gadgets in our 'editor's round-up'. We also introduce you to our 'readers' letters' page, which gives you the opportunity to write in and be in with the chance of winning a Mini Z Saw. This issue also includes a free copy of the D&M Show Guide, which tells you all you need to know about the upcoming Tool Show at Kempton Park Racecourse from 4-6 October.
