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

Shaun Newman’s early Viennese guitar in the style of Johann Georg Staufer

The August issue of The Woodworker incorporating Good Woodworking is now on sale and we have a varied selection of fantastic content for you to enjoy. Having received great feedback from our readers regarding our new ‘super’ magazine, we’re confident that we have discovered the winning formula when it comes to creating a title that will appeal to all woodworkers, regardless of your preferred discipline. Kicking off this brand-new issue is part 1 of Shaun Newman’s series on making an early Viennese guitar in the style of Johann Georg Staufer, before Colin Simpson shows us how to turn a lovely end-grain bowl from a piece of mulberry, which features a strikingly attractive natural-edge. Next up is Ben Hackney’s custom tool rack, which is also this month’s chosen cover image. Ben had been wanting to build a custom rack for years but could never find the time, but since making his own version tailored to his specific needs, he says he’ll never look back. Also in projects is Phil Davy’s outdoor mailbox, as well as Glenn Perry’s recipe book stand, which makes use of offcuts, not to mention Les Thorne’s natural-edge goblet, which he made using gifted walnut.
