In WPP 87, the Editor gets to work on a slide-top box in the striking, striped timber that is zebrano, and in 'Workshop Notes' he shows you how he got over a rising cutter mishap in the process. James Hatter makes a wedge-shaped table to fit an awkward space, while Mark Baker is at the lathe to turn a classic ogee form bowl. Walter Hall makes a simple yet stylish storage unit, while Amber Bailey gives us another marquetry lesson, this time making a cutlery drawer insert. We show you how to make some simple scrollsaw car puzzles, and Simon Rodway offers his design for that old workshop warhorse, the sawhorse. In techniques, the Editor imparts some more useful advice to bolster your DIY skills, and we have a thorough look at the topic of wood fillers.
In features this month, we're in the Mayan Rainforest to find out about agroecology, Colin Sullivan steps into the past with a look at the Stanley Odd Jobs, and we review the best woody books out there. On test are Stanley's 8-piece DynaGrip chisel set and Einhell's latest multitool, plus we take a look at Pro Workshop's custom home workshop services. All this plus news and 'Hot Stuff', our monthly roundup of the best in kit and tools, including your chance to win some Elmer's glue! Don't miss out...
