What is in the new issue of Good Woodworking Magazine

The ash for Les Thorne’s green wood projects is fine stacked horizontally, but ideally, the sycamore should be dried on end to prevent the timber from going grey

Well, it’s that time of year again when our Special issue comes around, and here it is! Months in the planning and hopefully one that will inspire, intrigue and educate, the subject of our 2017 issue is Timber Conversion, which is brought to you in association with Record Power. Boasting some of the best woodworking authors in the UK and USA, we’re very proud of GW325, and hope you’ll like it as much as we do! Consisting of technical articles, a few projects and some features to boot, as well as some tests for good measure, our Timber Conversion Special aims to cover all bases and tell you all you need to know about this fascinating subject. Mike McCrory kicks off our projects section, which sees him making a Valentine’s jewellery box using machine methods. Made using stunning pieces of bird’s eye maple and book-matched walnut, this project also comes complete with various interior trays, and in turning, Les Thorne demonstrates the different types of functional projects that can be made using fresh, green timber.
