This was a great year for new tools-hand tools as well as power tools. We made our list and present the 16 best. Our cover project is a handsome and functional lingerie chest by our new Senior Editor Glen Huey. Our Woodworking Essentials series continues on the theme of Setting up Shop and this month we look at placing machinery for working smarter. John Wilson shows us how to make an effective and inexpensive Solar Kiln, and we proudly present some old and new techniques for traditional joinery.
