On Sale Today - Furniture and Cabinetmaking issue 217

Wednesday 19 March 2014


The April issue of Furniture & Cabinetmaking magazine offers you a chance to meet young Australian designer Ben Percy in his featured profile and we spend 20 minutes with Walke-Moore Tools in our 'Design & Inspiration' section, as well as featuring 'The classic list', where we ask Tony Wills, Yannick Chastang, Robert Ingham, Marc Fish, Martin Grierson and Rod Wales to tell us about their favourite 'classic' furniture design. We also look at the recently sold-at-auction 'Slab' table by George Nakashima.

In our 'Projects and Techniques' section, Andy Lockhart deconstructs the iconic 'not a Greene and Greene table'; we look at the potential of moulding planes, so that you can master the art of cabinetmaking; and Andrew Potocnik shows you how to make a laminated red gum box. Also, Michael Huntley restores a mid 18th-century Secretaire cabinet and brings it back to its former glory.

We also have all your favourites: Editor's choice, News & Events, Workshop library and F&CUK, plus readers' letters. In Workshop library, Derek Jones reviews Francis Cape's We Sit Together, CNKing.com - Rise of the CNC and Jay Shafer's Backyard Sheds & Tiny Houses.

All this and more in issue 217!
