Good Woodworking cover image for issue 291Welcome

Back from the Yorkshire road trip I’m the person we run away from, the one who says, “I must just show you this holiday pic,” and then has you squinting at their iPhone as they thumb through the lot… but you’ve really got to look at the work of our two Yorkshire lads, Jacob Pugh and Luke Caley. In the next issue we reach the final leg, when we unveil a revolutionary and very special dovetail saw made in Scarborough. Back at home Andy King is excited by the Milwaukee Hole Hawg, the Tormek T4 and Trend drivers – and speaking of Trend, to celebrate this company’s 60th anniversary we’ve got a T5 router and CraftPro table for you to win. Jason Fisher matches trad style with cosy double glazing when he builds French doors, Alan Willey makes a crisply executed nested trio of tables, Phil Davy builds a flap to extend his kitchen worktop and Les Thorne turns an ornate earring stand. Michael Huntley talks mitres and angles and Finishing Touch starts a new series on the history of tools – this month on screws.
