Although we are edging towards the Autumn months, you need not fear because, as always, we have some fantastic woodworking and woodturning content for you, which will ensure you’re kept busy in your workshops! Projects-wise, we have some gems in store for you including part 1 of Shaun Newman’s ‘air guitar’ build, which is cleverly designed to fit into the overhead locker of an aircraft; also, Andrew Hall returns with a clever turning project, which makes use of discarded plastic tubing to create a neat little bird box complete with pagoda roof and base; next up, Martin Pim-Keirle rescues some finest-quality Swedish kitchen knives from the bin, strips off the original plastic handles and turns new ones using pieces of oak root; in ‘Engineer’s Workshop’, Dave Roberts has a hard time with JAZ, a wood-substitute that’s made from recycled paper; Les Thorne comes up with two different designs for a pair of salt and pepper shakers, both using oak and paduak: one with a toothpick holder and one without; Denis Whittaker uses pieces of scrap to make two alternative designs for tapas or ‘nibbles’ trays; and last but not least, Johnny Wikk’s clever and simple design for a bike rack makes use of wall space when floor space is at a premium.
