On Sale Today - Woodturning Issue 260

Thursday 7 November 2013


We have some great content lined up for you in the December issue - think of it as an early Christmas treat! In terms of projects, we have Neil Scobie's offset seedpod; Mark Sanger turns a garden bell; Richard Kennedy shows us two methods for creating an asymmetric vase; Paul Hannaby turns two variations of the natural-winged bowl and Philip Greenwood makes a two-part candleholder using only basic tools.

In our techniques section, we have part two of Richard Findley's new series and this month he looks at spindle turning gouges. Also, Kurt Hertzog further looks at the range of sharpening systems available and new our author, Michael Scarborough shows us some of the techniques he uses for creating one of his signature pieces.

In our features section, we meet philosopher-turner Helga Winter and Ray Weare shares one of his pieces with us on our 'Featured Artist' page.

Our kit & tools section has been revamped and this month includes a test on the Hold Fast vacuum chuck system and various press releases showing the latest tools and products on the market.

In our 'Community' section we have all your favourite pages, as well as giveaways from Bench Dog and Real Deals for You.
