What is in the new issue of The Woodworker inc Good Woodworking Magazine

Peter Benson makes four identical planters for his daughter’s new garden

Welcome to our May issue, which we’ve done our best to cram full of spring-time projects and techniques for you to make and learn from, as well as a few interesting and inspirational features to boot. If we start by taking a look at our wide range of projects and turning articles, first up is Peter Benson’s four matching planters, which he makes for his daughter’s garden; next, inspired by his late Grandad’s homemade tools, Martin Pim-Keirle produces his own traditional wooden full-depth marking gauge; why saw when you can turn? says Dave Roberts, who presents this month’s turning challenge; Phil Davy brings a cupboard back to its former beauty; Les Thorne’s beaded and burnt bowl in brown oak makes use of liming wax and blowtorching to create an interesting effect; and last but not least, Ian Wilkie’s clever design for a small cottage-type dolls’ house features two floors, a folding roof and looks very effective when painted.
