ASH-TABLE-750

PROJECTS & TURNING MEMORY BOX
Using only hand and power tools, Andy Brough had to think creatively when it came to the design and making of this keepsake box, which utilises a stunning piece of quilted sycamore in its main construction

TWISTED TEALIGHTS
While the actual turning of these little tealights is very simple, it’s the marking out that can cause some confusion, as Colin Simpson shows

GREEN WOOD TABLE Leon Osman‘s ash table demonstrates a spontaneous and organic approach to furniture making using green wood and salvaged timber

DISPLAY RACK FOR COLLECTIBLES Phil Davy shows you how to make a display rack for showing off all your treasured possessions

MDF BEDSIDE UNITS Made using ash, MDF and comprising a simple wall-hung shelving unit with French cleat, allowing for fixing to a wall, Geoff Ryan’s bedside storage solution ticks all the boxes

HOBO REEL & FLOAT

PLANE-LEAD-450

TECHNICAL

CHOOSING & USING BENCH PLANES
Looking at the vast subject of bench planes, John Bullar concentrates on the Bailey plane while looking at block variants, smaller ones for special jobs and the most useful and versatile of them all, the shoulder plane

TIMBER TERMS – PART 32
This section of the directory is all about the Rs – there’s lots of rings and rips – ending with the router, which is one of Peter Bishop’s favourites

HOUSING JOINTS
Structural in application, the housing joint – sometimes also called a dado joint – is widely used in cabinets and shelving units. It’s made by cutting a trench across the width of one component, into which the end of the other is inserted, as Andy Standing demonstrates
