Issue 288 of Good Woodworking

We gave Michael Huntley a month off from his foundation course and sent him on his holidays to see how a timber-framed shipwrights’ school was constructed. And arborealist David Vickers starts a mini series that looks at how trees are felled and milled for furniture making.

Meanwhile, Phil Davy makes some posh skirtings from hardwood, and Les Thorne turns a three-legged stool. We hope all this heralds a wonderful 2015 and that you are inspired to great woodworking.
