We’ve been fostering a spirit of adventure in Good Woodworking this month. Not only are we on the road with Stephen Skolnik, who swapped pop music for furniture making, but we’ve travelled back in time in search of the secret art of chisel forging – at least, Henry Taylor Tools’ factory felt like being back in time…

The message is, don’t struggle alone in your workshop; get out there, get inspired, and if you get stuck, give us a shout – darren.loucaides@myhobbystore.com
