Welcome…

Even though we are still very much in the thick of winter, that doesn’t mean it has to be a period of wasted workshop time. I hope you find this month’s issue to not only be informative, but also inspirational, and who knows, it may even broaden your horizons? We kick off with Tibby Singh’s font cover project, which sees him tackling a truly unique commission for his local church; followed by the…

Hello and welcome to our first issue of 2016! After three gruelling months of waiting in anticipation, the 2015 Wood Awards winners have finally been announced. We bring you the low-down on each winning entry as well as taking a special look at the Furniture & Product category winners, which, I’m very excited to say, comprised of two student designers. You may remember ‘Endgrain’ by Raw-Edges…

There’s nothing like a bit of variety in life, and if you can get it in your working life as well then it’s a double bubble situation. I’m currently helping out on a roofing job; so far it’s been mostly inside in a dimly-lit squash court-sized attic and has involved a structural engineer’s report (aka a serving suggestion) and loads of 12mm birch ply. When the weather’s fine it’s…

Hello and welcome to our 300th issue! Can this really be happening?! Apparently so! I must say that I feel very honoured to be part of such a wonderful team and have the privilege of working with so many great people each month in putting together a magazine that is so well loved by its readers (and by us!) A massive thank you must go out to everyone who has continued to support the magazine over the years – we…

It’s always good going away and, if you can do a bit of work while you’re there then it certainly adds another element to your holiday. I was visiting my brother in New York recently and found myself volunteering for a double window shelf job. I couldn’t help it and so, after the initial concept and design work, a simple materials list was drawn up and the sourcing of timber began.

Hello and welcome to our special turning issue, which features the perfect mix of tests, exciting new products and some great features for you to enjoy (or at least that’s what I intended!) I couldn’t help but include above a photo of the hands of our featured pole-lathe turner at work, Gudrun Leitz. She shares her story with us and flies the flag for women turners everywhere, showing that she’s…

We’ve all heard it, that announcement on the slowing train warning the unwary or novice traveller to ‘mind the gap between the carriage and the platform’. A few years ago I started to amuse myself by inserting the words ‘between your dreams and reality’ every time I heard it, and still do occasionally. Sure, it’s not easy to make your dreams come true, but we’ve got to give it a try…

It’s generally around this time of year that the pace of work seems to pick up a bit, in my case this has gone from flat out to borderline frantic. Everyone seems to be very keen to have their cupboards, wardrobes, etc. finished ‘this week’ or even sooner. I don’t know why this should be, perhaps it’s a deeply ingrained primeval urge to make a safe and secure dwelling for the winter months…

Hello! As you’ve probably gathered, Andrea has handed over the editorial reins to me, but she will be contributing features when the urge takes her. Phew! I’ve spent the last eight years beavering away on woodworking magazines, honing my skills. In fact, I love it so much that I jumped at the chance to take on a new challenge by becoming Editor on Good Woodworking. I feel like an excited child in a sweet…

… to an issued packed with colour and invention. During my term as Editor of Good Woodworking I have been amazed by the glorious things you designers and makers do to wood to bring out its living essence. Just look at the cover picture above and vow to see Celebration of Craftsmanship & Design, where everything that I love about wood – its figure, its versatility, its luminosity – goes on…

Welcome

Let’s face it, we all enjoy our woodworking, and most of us will rarely pass up the chance to learn something new. But what if it’s us that’s doing the teaching? The two are actually very similar sides of the same coin. Anyone who has had the chance of imparting some useful knowledge to a keen and eager audience will no doubt appreciate that it’s something of a privilege. Not only will you feel a…

What a lot we have to be thankful for… imagine being in the pit end of a two-man saw, like the one they have at the Weald & Downland Museum, then realise how fortunate we are that power tools and machines were invented and keep on being developed for various use levels, like the Jolly bandsaw which Andy King takes quite a fancy to. And standards of design and build are getting better all the time, with no less than four…
