GW225 is an issue with very strong joints, we think. Why? Well, apart from Andy King conducting a thorough exploration of specialist biscuit fixings – a sure guarantee for better joints – there’s our reclaimed wood special with two bedside cabinets made from old mahogany, there’s our nigh-on-revolutionary feature about sawcut veneering (the art of making your own timber) by David Oldfield, as well as our look at the portfolio and working practices of fine furniture whiz Richard Williams. There’s also our new-look Solutions section complete with Maker’s Notes, which collects together questions, answers, and ideas from readers, rolled in with discussion from Get Woodworking.com’s very own forum. Meanwhile, our newest contributor Les Thorne RPT begins his GW adventures with a feature on what you need to start turning.
Also, free inside the March issue is an eight-page show guide for you to pull out in time for the Get Woodworking Live exhibition on 12th to 14th March.
