What is in the new issue of Good Woodworking Magazine

Making use of the clever Simon Hope laser kit hollowing system, Les Thorne turns a vase in English yew before adding texture to the outside and an ebony insert to create contrast

We’ve got a very exciting issue in store for you, as we present a showcase of the eight recent graduates of Peter Sefton’s Furniture School. These talented furniture makers certainly represent the future of the craft, and each shares their story here as well as showing off their stunning creations. Each of their pieces are also deservingly shown on this month’s front cover. As well as this exciting feature, we also have a lot more in store for you, including a fantastic range of projects, which, as always, are varied. Janice Anderssen kicks off proceedings with her pine slat bench, which is very easy to make, using only a few basic tools and materials, as well as having a multitude of uses both inside the house and out. Shaun Newman also returns with a very unusual commission, which sees him creating a chair that brings together two very different disciplines and cultures: sound therapy and chakra crystal healing; Matthew White shows us a clever design for a hall tree, which is perfect for keeping your winter accessories tidy; and on the DIY side of things, Phil Davy completes a vanity unit he recently installed, going on to fit a laminate worktop to finish the job. And if turning is more your thing, then you’ll love Veronica Spencer’s space rocket with a see-through acrylic window as well as Les Thorne’s laser quest vase in English yew.
