What a refreshing mag this issue is...summer must be coming!!.
Its got great plans with easy to follow instructions..........even the wife has picked out a few projects for me to do!

I thought the folding furniture a brillaint idea and for the size of my garden it would fit and fold away perfectly. 
The potting table is something I''ve been meening to do for some time and Alan Holtham has given me some great ideas.
Its going to be a busy few months ahead I think.
Well done to Neil Mead & all

Thanks for the headsup - I think!
I went out and bought it this morning.  I haven't had a chance to even open the cover yet but The Head of The Household has.  Result - I'm booked for loads of jobs I haven't even a clue about yet!
The mag cost me a fiver but I suspect the wood is going to cost a hundred and five!  Looks like the summer wet days are accounted for.
I'll get my own back on you one day!

Hi another Richard
I got mine from the local newsagent but I've also seen it in WH Smith and the Co-op.

I got mine last week from a local newsagent . If you are willing to buy it regular then most newsagent will order it for you . 

Marc , I did like the potting table too . I have some Indian Sandstone left from the patio and it measures up at 600 x 900 , about an inch thick . I think this will be my project from it , but the wife likes the hammock stand . Lots of good ideas .

Damn! I could have had one of my hot tub gazebos in there if I had known.  Mind you I had better not let her indoors see it. LOL.

Hi Euan
I only have one shop within a 5 mile radius and my area has over 32,000 residents!

It may be time to subscribe mate, you get it delivered straight to your door so you needn't go out searching for out a lot cheaper too.

Yes i am a a subscriber to good wood but not the woodworker.It works out cheaper to subscribe but there are certain issues that have had no interest to me.I remember last year one magazine did a test on hardpoint saws.Is this the sort of thing we want to see?More projects,less adverts i think.Sometimes i wonder why i subscribe as some months the mags can be  quite poor!One good thing though is this site.

Hi Euan
For the reason's that you outline, that is the main reason that I no longer subscribe to any wood working magazine. In the past I have subscribed to the woodworker, good woodworking and furniture and cabinet making.
Once a month I pop into WH smiths and browse the magazines. So far this year I have purchased 3, the practical woodworking garden projects, and 2 fine woodworking. I prefer it this way as I only buy a magazine that has some relevance to me.

Hi Al
I bought the practical wood garden projects some good ideas in there.How many times have you bought a magazine to find that the same old tool catalogue is in it.It must be costing them a fortune!Had a clear out last week and chucked out 5 of them.
regards   Euan
