In this month's issue of The Woodworker
• Medieval challenge - Vere Shannon builds a realistic toy castle for his two grandsons, who had a large collection of knights in armour and nowhere to play with them. It’s got towers and ramparts, a working drawbridge and portcullis, and there’s even a dungeon. He’ll complete the build in next month’s issue, in time for Christmas.
• In the apple store - Peter Bishop picks his apple harvest and builds a traditional storage rack to keep his crop fresh for the winter. The sturdy open racks are designed to facilitate air circulation, and can be customised with stencils to identify the various varieties in store.
In our Workshop section, Paul Sellers describes how he learned his craft and decided to pass his knowledge on to students young and old by creating his Artisan Course. Not only does he teach it at his New Legacy School of Woodworking in North Wales; he’s now published it as a 320-page book and an accompanying set of seven DVDs, which are available from www.myhobbystore.co.uk. You can sample the course in the free DVD included with the magazine.
Meanwhile, Ron Fox carries on routing with a look at guide bushes, and Andy Standing continues his series on portable power tools with a round-up of what’s what in circular saws. And there’s more of Keith Smith in his inimitable Shop Notes feature, plus another batch of gadgets for woodworkers.
