On Sale Today - Furniture and Cabinetmaking issue 245

Thursday 12 May 2016


In issue 245 of Furniture & Cabinetmaking we have lots for you to enjoy. In our ‘Projects & Techniques’ section, Simon Smith explains the veneering technique used on the architecturally inspired Zaftig chest; Liam Thomas discovers a new technique for cutting sliding dovetails; Matt Morse takes on a challenging project for a client’s library; Dennis Zongker talks you through the steps for bending wood for curved furniture; furniture craftsman Seth Janofsky looks at making a component-build sideboard; Gary Rogowski makes a deceptively simple mirror frame with tapers, curves and half-lapped joints; and Jo Morgan reproduces Bakelite handles for an Art Deco cocktail cabinet.

In ‘Design & Inspiration’ we have a profile on antique restorer John Hartnett; we visit ‘The Anarchist’s Lemonade Stand’ as woodworking, publishing and radical making collide when Lost Art Press christens its new northern Kentucky headquarters; Kieran Binnie considers how makers and customers communicate; and in ‘Under the Hammer’ we look at three examples of ornamental furniture.

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.
