Good Woodworking Magazine
Andy Kingís handiwork dominates the cover of this monthís Good Woodworking as our tiger on the tools takes over 11 whole pages of the magazine to investigate making dovetails both by hand and with the use of jigs. We hope we havenít embarrassed Andy by calling it a masterclass, but having subbed and proofed those pages, we think heís done one incredibly thorough and entertaining job. Nice work, Andy.

Mike Jordanís hall table from green oak (project) is another standout feature. This isnít an example of green woodworking, but traditional woodworking using green wood, if you get the nuance. Mikeís almost self-effacing way with words, and down to earth explanations of the techniques make this a must-read.

Andyís scored a UK first-test this month, too. Youíll not have seen the Worksharp 3000 tool sharpener tested anywhere else, but Andyís already very familiar with the dry-sharpening methods that this fast and accurate machine offers.

In Profile Cornwall Collegeís Phil Whitfeld recalls the career and work of St Ives maker Robin Nance, revealing how this almost-forgotten woodworker shared equal limelight with the countryís leading Arts & Crafts artists and artisans of the 20th century. Itís a fascinating, inspirational read.

And finally in Around the House Phil Davy delves into something of a modern conundrum Ė how to integrate home cinema into the home. Woodworking skills come to the fore again!

Plus of course we have all our usual regulars. Mike Riley tries carving, David Oldfield destroys his car and TR Dave Roberts turns another monumental piece! And we havenít even mentioned the making finger planes project, the pages of pointers and tips from our Solutions team, the balustrade project and much much more. And we should add that starting this issue Letter of the Month wins a £75 Skilsaw (so get writing!). Itís all good.
