Andy King’s handiwork dominates the cover of this month’s Good Woodworking as our tiger on the tools takes over 11 whole pages of the magazine to investigate making dovetails both by hand and with the use of jigs. We hope we haven’t embarrassed Andy by calling it a masterclass, but having subbed and proofed those pages, we think he’s done one incredibly thorough and entertaining job. Nice work, Andy.

The cover of this month’s Good Woodworking features James Binning, the driving force behind Deep in Wood, Oxfordshire’s newest timber merchant. James is a fervent believer in the ‘local’ ethic yet his stock shows that local doesn’t preclude exotic. While James is new and growing his business fast you’ll see from our article that his goals are all long term. A fascinating read, we hope you’ll find.

The Projects section continues to foster attractive yet achievable designs, presented in a neat straightforward yet comprehensive manner. Mark Cass leads the way this month with a three-piece screen (you know, one of those bi-fold room divider jobbies) designed to display the custom weavings of one of his clients. As ever, Mark’s first stop is down at his local timber recycler. Double tenons, wedges – it’s all going on here. Meanwhile…

The Projects section hits something of a high this month with some highly attractive and challenging work for you to try. Ian Taylor’s sleigh bed in American cherry and utile is something of a grand design, the use of tambours (some 72 of them – plus 88 splines!) making for a study in production work. Meanwhile Mark Cass makes his Projects debut with a simple yet elegant dining table – you’ll like his projects and you’ll really enjoy…

This month Good Woodworking has certainly been out and about, checking out what’s going in workshops around the country.

Ben Plewes headed west to find a cooperative of woodworkers recently installed in Bristol who are turning out stunning work (as seen at the Betty Norbury). He carried on driving further west, over the Severn Bridge into Welsh Wales to find Roni Roberts who shared with Ben her inspirational methods on production.

The September issue cover story is about getting back to basics with the bandsaw, care of our product-testing maestro Andy Standing. Even if we think we know our machines thoroughly it’s as well to refresh our memory banks – it’s surprising how sometimes we’ve missed a small detail that may be a timesaver or a point of safety. Andy’s also tested six brand new bandsaws, from budget to top of the range, to see what we can get for our…

It’s a new look for the cover of The Woodworker this month, so we thought we should preview it well in advance, so you don’t mistake it for an all-new magazine when you’re at the newsagents! We feel the new design better reflects the contents of the magazine, with an emphasis on woodworking and turning.

This month Good Woodworking remembers the life and times of one of its most respected (and at times notorious) contributors, John Brown. In a five-page feature we look back at the inspired writing of the Welsh stick chair maker, while Phil Davy and Mike Riley share their own personal thoughts and feelings on the man and his work.

Workshop Angles makes a welcome return with a visit to the immaculate, and productive, workshop of David Ames…
