Our August issue is here and we’re confident it’s going to be a hit with our readers. As we make our way into summer, we provide you with some great project ideas, which will make sure you’re kept busy in your workshops. This month’s cover star and also our first project is Janice Anderssen’s step stool & toolbox in one, which although simple, will make a handy addition to any workshop, and you also get two projects for the price of one, which is always a bonus! For those of you who are fans of making the most of waney edges and natural character, Peter Harrison’s rustic wine rack will definitely appeal. Made using oak and yew, it houses at least 12 bottles and is designed to be either placed inside a cupboard or used freestanding. Mike McCrory joins us again, but this time is faced with a tall order as he is commissioned to make a bespoke growth chart, which is not only beautifully hand-crafted, but also visually appealing and entirely functional. Another great workshop project is Phil Davy’s handy sanding storage solution, which ensures that all your abrasives are kept in one place - just as long as you remember to put them back after you’ve finished! Our last project is worth waiting for, and that’s Les Thorne’s stunning skeleton clock with finials, which is finished using ebonising lacquer and gilt cream, to create a wonderful contrasting effect.
