Good Woodworking celebrates its 300th issue this month and as a thank you, we’ve given over an extra 10 pages of fantastic content. We have a 17 page Shed of the Year 2015 competition special, where we give you a glimpse into all the category finalists, the category winners and also reveal the ultimate winner! We also have an exclusive interview with ‘Head Sheddie’ and founder Andrew Wilcox. As well as this we also have two brand-new series for you, some great projects, features, tests and two fantastic competitions from Trend and Robert Sorby.

Make Phil Davy’s unique driftwood Christmas tree
We have some great Christmas projects for you this month, including Phil Davy’s wonderful driftwood Christmas tree, which was inspired by a recent trip to a Cornish beach. Easy to make and would look great in a porch or outdoors over the festive season.
