On Sale Today - Woodworking Plans and Projects Issue 85

Monday 2 September 2013


This month in Woodworking Plans and Projects, we're keeping you busy as ever with some great projects. We've made an attractive scorched table set for you to try your hand at, plus the Editor shows you how easy it can be to make a simple table using the router. Kevin Ley turns an old brass tray into a coffee table top with a beautiful fumed oak base, while Mike Mahoney is at the lathe turning a kitchen utensil holder. Deborah Nicholson shows you how to make a pair of fun scrollsawn crabs, and finally Simon Rodway makes a stand for your hats, coats and umbrellas. Techniques this month include a guide to outbuildings from our DIY guru James Hatter, as well as the first part of our in-depth guide to abrasives. William Hall fits a cupboard in a tight spot, and Anthony Bailey has some advice on workshop electrics. Plus, come with us on a trip to Triplegrove Furniture, a small firm founded 24 years ago, and take a look at Colin Sullivan's combination square.

On test this month, we take a tour of six of the best adhesives, we check out Mirka's new Abranet Ace abrasives, and we see how Swedish company LOGOSOL helped one man make his dream floor. All this, plus our reviews of the best woodworking books out there, a round-up of the latest products, the latest news and events, and your free guide to the D&M Tool Show 2013. Don't miss out!
