On Sale Today - Furniture and Cabinetmaking issue 247

Thursday 7 July 2016


In issue 247 of Furniture&Cabinetmaking we have lots for you to enjoy. In our 'Projects and Techniques' section, Andrew Lapthorn's Tripod table captures the appeal of a bespoke piece through clever batch production; the Editor looks at using tabled lap joints and takes a short cut approach to hand veneering; Geoffrey Laycock looks at common problems with user manuals; Patrice Lejeune and Luke Addington conclude their series on French polishing; Charles Mak shares his method for cutting a seemingly complicated joint; and Franciszek de Sage examines a 17th-century chest on a stand.

In 'Design and Inspiration' Peter Korn introduces work from students at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship; Anne Briggs Bohnett meets Jeff Hamilton; David Bradley is overwhelmed with inspiration on a trip to Italy; and we look at a lot from Bonhams' Gentleman’s Library sale.

As well as all this, we also have 'Leader' from the Editor; 'News and Events'; 'F&CUK and 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.
