Issue #242 of Popular Woodworking features a classic Arts & Crafts desk by Seth Keller with simple router joinery. Seth builds upon a classic Limbert design — scaling the dimensions of the piece up to accommodate a laptop and other accessories needed in a modern desk. Austin Heitzman shares his process for dishing a table top with a router. Using a couple clever jigs, he's able to produce a shape that just begs to be touched. Plus, he shares his technique for rock-solid leg joinery. And, David Lyell introduces you to the world of welding for woodworkers. With a basic tool kit, you can easily add metalwork to your builds. The author walks you through making a pair of contemporary metal legs for a slab coffee table. We also feature the best reader work from the last year in our Excellence Awards, with everything from chairs and tables to casework and beginner's pieces. Plus, Bob Flexner shares more insight into what finishing terms exactly mean, Peter Follansbee gives you a primer on drawknives, George Walker talks rustication and we share some great workshop tips, new tools and more!
