See what's in the latest issue of Good Woodworking Magazine
Well, there I was, reclining to the manner born – I wish – on a window seat looking out over Lake Windermere in the glorious White Drawing Room at Arts & Crafts house Blackwell; never have I seen such consideration in every fitment, whether it be furniture, joinery, ceramics, ironwork or glass. So, coincidence being a fine thing, I am delighted to tell you that this month Dave Roberts writes about a carver who not only upholds the traditions of a century ago but debates the difference between craft and craftsmanship – Lawrence Llewelyn-Bowen hang your head in shame.
Anyway, moving swiftly on, like time, and I find that we have something of a clockwork theme going on, with Stephen Simmons restoring a long-case clock, Shaun Newman dealing with a badly judged refurb, and a German clockmaker offering plans to make your own workings.
While SIP’s table saw isn’t absolute perfection for Andy – what is? – he still awards it his coveted five stars, and also tells us a bit about the company. He rates a new sander from Axminster, a Bosch combi drill, and tells you how to use the Scribemaster.
