On Sale Today - Furniture and Cabinetmaking Issue 219

Thursday 15 May 2014


In issue 219 of Furniture & Cabinetmaking we have lots for you to enjoy. In our 'Projects & Techniques' section, Oliver Waters of Waters and Acland Furniture Workshop and School explains how they made their sculptural table; the Editor pushes six joints to the limit; Jim Hooker takes a look at the new block plane from Karl Holtey and aims to discover whether or not it lives up to the hype; Paul Mayon takes part in Andrew Crawford's box-making course and shares his experience with you; John Bullar looks into the different types of wood screws and Dennis Zongker adds inlay banding to his Queen Anne-style table.

In 'Design & Inspiration' we have a profile on American artist and contemporary furniture maker David Sinaguglia; we spent 20 minutes with furniture maker Ben King; Geoffrey Laycock visits a charity dedicated to helping people with a variety of disabilities to live independent and fulfilling lives and Michael Huntley looks at the historical significance of a trestle table, dating back to the 15th-centrury. We also have Geoffrey Laycock testing the new bench-mounted bobbin sander from Record Power in 'Tests & Equipment'.

As well as all this, we also have 'Leader' from the Editor; 'News & Events'; 'F&CUK & readers' letters'; 'Editor's round-up' and 'Workshop library', where we have a number of furniture-related reads that we think you'll enjoy, as well as our website of the month.
