This month's special Projects and Plans winter special is all you need to keep you occupied in the workshop over the coming months with handy tips and  projects to suit everyone  
 
The issue opens with a run through of some basic carcase joints. A  firm grip on seven or eight basic joints is the best foundation for creating sound furniture
 
Acquire the nuts and bolts needed to build your own chest with the help of Mike Scourfield’s ash number In Peter’s Bishop’s alternative design you’ll find a mix of traditional and modern techniques

We have three bookcase designs to chose from starting with an experiment with knock-down furniture by using tusk tenons If you have enough books to fill a library? Then you’ll want a look at David Hatherley’s solution. And Pete Martin’s breakfront design accommodates books of all sizes

 
Are you up to the challenge of Andrew Crawford’s small but tricky box which is after all exactly what a backgammon board is ?

And we have four cabinets to chose from starting with frame and panel cabinet that can be adapted to your own projects  Bryan Blow’s glazed bow-fronted build is full of technique. Or you can let the timber decide in Phil Edwards’ Krenov-style creation

 
Lastly we have a walnut drop-leaf coffee table that is  packed with challenges and techniques. Happy making.
