Woodworking Crafts is intended for anyone and everyone from beginners to experienced woodworkers who want to expand their range woodworking knowledge and learn new skills. It covers everything from green woodworking to cabinetmaking to DIY, upcycling, restoration and many craft disciplines based on wood such as marquetry, pyrography, woodturning and carving. The emphasis is on applied techniques and working with different tools and materials. Readers are encouraged to interact and play their part too, with reader based product tests, letters, hints and tips published in each issue.
In this month's issue:
Issue 30 of Woodworking Crafts is packed with interesting articles and projects centred on the theme of timber. In our ‘Community’ pages we see how Brendan Devitt Spooner collects trees and air-dries them to produce his own supply of exquisitely grained wood; Gary Marshall explains how to identify trees by their leaves; we explore the versatility of the willow; Geoffrey Laycock meets with a traditional cricket bat-maker; plus a woodworking glossary, book reviews and the latest news and events.
In ‘Projects’ James Hatter makes an extending oak and ash dining table; Paul Purnell carves an elegant walking stick with a walnut handle; Simon Rodway creates a fun boat-shaped seat; and Bob Duncan shows you how to make whimsical fish coasters.
In the ‘Techniques’ pages Louise Briggs demonstrates dining chair restoration; our Editor tests freehand versus table routing; and we explore fine trimming with Japanese handsaws.
All this and more in Woodworking Crafts issue 30!
