In issue 310 of Woodturning, editor Mark Baker ponders types of timber and the different avenues through which turners get the lifeblood of their craft. For our ‘Techniques’ this month, Richard Findley turns a set of country kitchen-style table legs; Andy Coates explores the unique effects achieved by working with burrs; Ernie Conover examines useful handle shapes; and Kurt Hertzog gives his top tips for pen turners. The ‘Projects’ section features fishing floats and lures from Colwin Way; traditional whistles from Stuart King; and a coaster set and stand from Chris West.
Turn to our ‘Features’ to discover the distinctive work of Michael Alquire; debate ‘What is turning?’ with John Plater; and catch up on the German Woodturning Symposium 2017. Meanwhile our ‘Community’ pages provide all the latest news, events and social media highlights, while ‘Kits & Tools’ tests the latest products on the market.
All this and more in issue 310 of Woodturning!
