Do you have too many chisels? Most woodworkers do. The April 2017 issue takes a deep dive into the world of chisels: which ones you actually need, how to set one up and proper techniques for use. Plus, learn to make you own solid-core plywood – it’s way better than the big-box stuff. Build a William & Mary-style side table with turned drops, Gothic arches and more. Get a Japanese-lacquer look with Don Williams’s “faux urushi” technique using epoxy for a quick, itch-free finish surface, and learn about differences in various dyes with Bob Flexner.
Plus in this issue learn:
- How to build a breadboard end cutting board, a modern accessory with a very old feature
- About mouldings, a feature common to both furniture and architecture
- The story of Nehemiah Wallington, a very unhappy early woodworker
- Why shop safety is essential, explained by a hand surgeon (he’s seen what can go wrong)
- And more!
