The Woodworker inc Good Woodworking - September 2021

Whether you choose to make projects, learn from technical articles, be inspired by features, or perhaps all three, the most important thing is to ensure you're having fun with your woodworking journey. Our September issue is packed full of woodworking and woodturning content, and here's what you can expect to find inside.

HAT-LEAD-650

PROJECTS & TURNING

VIENNA WALL CLOCK – PART 2
Picking up from completion of the case framework in part 1, Peter Skilton makes the backboard, under bracket, pediment, front and octagonal panels, before finishing and putting it all together

HAT TURNING – PART 3
In the final part of this series, Andrew Hall makes a stand for displaying turned hats, a mirror frame using the ring saved from a wet-turned hat, plus various decorative buttons for placing around the brim

HALL TREE
Matthew White takes inspiration from a vintage effect hall tree and creates his own walnut version that incorporates even more storage space

MISSION COAT RACK
Phil Davy shows you how to make a neat little coat rack in the Mission style – one which is well known for its understated elegance and straight lines

COMIC STORAGE DRUM
This unusual project by Edward Pulleyn is straight out of the school workshop, and here at The Woodworker we're always pleased to see this sort of thing – highly commendable!

CHESS SET & BOARD
Not only easy to play with, when not in use Terry Diss' modern chess set also makes a great centrepiece when displayed on a table or sideboard

TURNED MARACAS
Les Thorne's turned maracas not only make for a fun project, but also represent a great exercise in copy turning and airbrushing

WOOD-LEAD-450

TECHNICAL

CHOOSING WOOD FOR FURNITURE MAKING
In the next part of this series, John Bullar discusses the subject of selecting appropriate timber for your furniture making projects

TIMBER TERMS – PART 30
In part 30 of this ongoing series, Peter Bishop watches his Ps and Qs before trickling into the Rs for a bit of a rabbet

THROUGH DOVETAIL JOINTS
Both functional and highly decorative, the dovetail is perhaps the most admired of all woodworking joints. It's the strongest way to join two pieces of timber at right angles, with all the strength depending on the joint itself rather than the glue, as Andy Standing shows

MAYFLOWER-450

FEATURES

ARCHIVE
Turning to The Woodworker of August 1960, Robin Gates celebrates the revival of the chair bodger's ancient craft

MAYFLOWER 400 BONFIRE & PYROMUSICAL
Postponed from 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, to mark their 50th anniversary and raise £100,000 for charity, Great Torrington Cavaliers will burn a full-size replica of the Mayflower in a spectacular bonfire celebration, as John Greeves shows here

TOM GALT IN PROFILE
Also this month's cover star, furniture maker and designer Tom Galt's passion for creating sleek, handcrafted pieces is strongly evident, as Martin Pim-Keirle discovers

FRIDAY 5
This month's #woodworkerfriday5 selection includes an amazing sofa table with the most wonderful grain figuring, an eye-catching selection of traditional Breton carved spoons, and a turned mahogany bowl with stunning turquoise insert 

ON TEST

IVAC 230V SWITCH BOX & FILL LEVEL METER
Geoff Ryan looks at two handy workshop accessories from Toolovation, which allow you to take control of dust in your workshop

HENRY TAYLOR BEVEL EDGE CHISELS
Available from Classic Hand Tools, you'd be hard pressed to find a decent set of chisels that keep such a sharp edge at this price elsewhere, says Simon Frost
