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, Christmas is getting closer by the day, and what better way to celebrate than with our December issue! Featuring three Christmas-themed projects for you to make either over the festive season or before it, you’ll love Tristan Dare’s handmade ribbon box, which is easy to make and looks incredibly effective; Carl Jacobson’s incredibly fun snow couple, which we can be decorated with the help of your children or grandchildren, and Phil Davy’s festive candle holder designs, which will be perfect for that last-minute present or surprise table decoration. But it’s not all about Christmas! We also have a great turning project from Les Thorne, as he shows you how to make two different vase designs, each with a different shaped contrasting finial. Definitely a design that never gets old, and one which looks incredibly effective to boot.
