The Woodworker inc Good Woodworking – January 2022

With another 12 editions of the magazine completed, this brings us back round to our January issue, and the first of 2022.

As well as a host of projects, technical articles, features and tests for you to enjoy, we're also pleased to announce the launch of The Alan Peters Furniture Award 2022.

So without further ado, let's take a closer look at what our January 2022 issue in store...

1221-mus-box-430

Fitting music into wooden projects adds to the sensory pleasure they give, but it’s not as easy as it sounds, if you’ll pardon the pun!

PROJECTS & TURNING

MUSIC BOXES
Tony ‘Bodger’ Scott fits music into toys for children

REVOLVING BOOKCASE
Shaun Newman’s revolving bookcase design not only houses a fair few tomes, but also features a handy usable surface, which is ideal for those short on space

EMERGING BOWL
Colin Simpson opts for something a little more abstract – a turned, well-polished bowl that seems to emerge from another piece of wood

SKELETON CLOCK WITH FINIALS
Also this month’s cover star, Les Thorne uses ash and ebony to create a wonderful timepiece, which is then finished using ebonising lacquer and gilt cream to create a stunning contrasting effect

WORKMATE REFURB
Phil Davy shows you how to get your old Workmate looking as good as new, just in time for those spring jobs

GLAZED DOOR PANEL
Phil Davy finally gets around to completing the glazed panel on his porch’s oak door, and the result, although simple, is undeniably elegant

GLUE & JOINT SECRETS

LAP DOVETAIL JOINTS
The most familiar type of dovetail joint is the lapped dovetail. It’s used when you want to hide the joint on one side but make it visible on the other
