On Sale Today - Woodworking Plans and Projects Issue 86

Thursday 3 October 2013


In the October issue of Woodworking Plans & Projects, young furniture maker Joe Thomas shows us how he made an impressive modern hallway table, the Editor makes a wacky wine rack and Walter Hall makes a soft-closing toybox. Paul Bignell returns with a simple puppy carving, James Hatter makes a bespoke curtain rail in oak and Terry Scott turns a set of decorative candle holders with a distinctive metallic painted finish on the lathe. We'll also show you how to make a dragon jigsaw puzzle using the scrollsaw, and Simon Rodway's plans this month outline a wall mirror with a shelf, drawers and towel rail.

In techniques, the Editor restores in infill plane bought for the princely sum of 17p, we bring you 20 tips on getting the most from your abrasives and the Editor kicks off the new 'DIY Fixes' series to help you with all those niggling jobs around the house. Our feature this month is on the fantastic International Boatbuilding Training College in Lowestoft, plus we look at pattern maker's tools in Tools of Yesteryear.

On test this month, we clean up with the Einhell TH-VC 1820S vacuum cleaner, check out Trend's Waveform sawblades and the Sedgwick TA450 rip saw, plus a tour of five of the best lathes out there!
