The Woodworker inc Good Woodworking – February 2022

0122-conv-pro-250

Convene, by Mark Hampson, is a collection of two chairs and two stools-cum-side tables, which fit within the footprint of a single chair, allowing users to pull out an additional chair or stool when required

PROJECTS & TURNING

CONVENE CHAIRS & TABLES
This set of two chairs and two side tables by Mark Hampson nests into one compact unit when not in use, and looks stylish in both guises

SCRATCH-BUILT WORKBENCH
Using reclaimed materials and a few workshop staples, Paul Chesterman shows that it’s entirely possible to build a solid, freestanding workbench for around £10

STAVE-JOINTED PLATTERS
Using his own multi-dimensional turning techniques, Rod Tallack shows how to produce some unusual platters

LOG BIRD BOX
Tony ‘Bodger’ Scott makes a snug home for garden birds

SPLINE-JOINTED BOX
Ben Brandt uses aluminium to add decorative contrast to a lovely walnut box with maple lining

SALT PIG
A salt pig, traditionally a simple jar for storing salt, is usually made from earthenware, but here, Les Thorne shows how to turn this classic kitchen item in oak and zebrano

0122-prep-tech-400

When prepping timber by hand, Mark Riley uses a combination of homemade and bought-in tools, which include a selection of bench planes with sharp irons

TECHNICAL

SAFETY FIRST
Considering the fact that safety should always be at the forefront of every woodworker’s mind, here we discuss the issue of unguarded machines and how to avoid dangerous practices

TIMBER TERMS – PART 36
Peter Bishop continues working his way through the Ss, and there’s still quite a way to go!

TIMBER PREP BY HAND
Cheaper, quieter and very satisfying, too: preparing timber by hand needn’t be slow or difficult, says Mike Riley

HALVING JOINTS
The halving joint is mainly used in framing work and where two components cross or meet one another in the same plane. Easy to cut by hand or machine, there are several variations of the joint, though all follow the same basic principle, as shown by Andy Standing

FEATURES

JOBS, JOINTS & JOURNALISM
Peter Scaife, editor of The Woodworker in the mid-1960s, recalls a very different world of woodworking

BOX-MAKING MASTER
Hearing Steve Altman modestly describe his pieces as “bits of eye candy”, those not familiar with this boxmaking master’s incredible body of work would be forgiven for underestimating an immense talent

ARCHIVE
Looking to cut better dovetail joints, Robin Gates turns to The Woodworker of May 1951
