In this first issue of the redesigned Popular Woodworking Magazine, the cover project is a reproduction of a White Water Shaker Stepback built by senior editor Glen D. Huey. We profile Clark & Williams, Plane Makers, and explore the late 17th-century style of William & Mary as well as the craftsmanship of the 18th-century cabinetmaker Thomas Day. Senior editor Robert W. Lang explores How Tables Work and a Sunken Treasure of ancient Honduran mahogany is reclaimed from the rivers of Belize. George R. Walker in his Design Matters column helps us in Making Sense of Forms, while Bob Flexner differentiates An Array of Lacquers. We test the Rob Cosman Dovetail Saw in our Tool Test, and this issue's I Can Do That project is a sturdy, swedish Skansen Bench. Plus reader Letters, Tricks of the Trade, On the Level, and a Glossary.
