What is in the new issue of Good Woodworking Magazine

Les Thorneís turned platter with spalted apples

Welcome to our May issue, which is full of the joys of spring and ready to inspire you to get busy in your workshops! Not only do we have a varied range of projects for you to make, we also have some very interesting and useful technical articles, plus some fantastic features for you to enjoy. Speaking of projects, Clint Rose starts by presenting an entirely unique design for a bird table, which includes a series of planters to make it really stand out, before Tristan Dare creates a unique cutting board design consisting of 100 pieces of beautiful contrasting wood. In addition, we have a couple of great DIY projects from Phil Davy, the first of which details the simple steps for installing a Suffolk latch on a ledged and braced door, and the second shows you how to quickly and easily replace a rotten window board, not forgetting our monthly turning project from Les Thorne, which this month sees him using a piece of spalted beech to turn a platter accompanied by a selection of apples in exotic timbers.
