Our cover project is a set of the ever-popular Barrister bookcases. What sets our version apart is that we have designed them to be simple to build. Our "I Can Do That" project is a reproduction of a Shaker set of shelves. Adam Cherubini shows how stock was prepared in the 18th-century, and Michael Dunbar reveals his methods for sensible inexpensive sharpening. Bob Flexner details his methods for repairing chairs, and Scott Gibson continues our "Woodworking Essentials" series with an in depth article on material storage. Glen Huey details his methods and recipes for acheiving classic American furniture finishes, and we present full instructions for building a reversible lathe chuck. As always, we answer your questions and letters, share our readers Tricks of the Trade and continue to bring you the solid information to build your skills and make your woodworking more enjoyable.
