Woodsmith - Vol. 29 / No. 170 - Review
Woodsmith is one of our favorite magazines for a lot of reasons. First, there are absolutely no ads in it. None. Not a single one. It’s fantastic. Secondly, their projects are interesting, challenging, and most importantly, clearly presented. Thirdly, the tips and techniques are always innovative and actually useful.
This issue is no exception. The centerpiece project is a large modular bookcase, which they allow you to tailor to your own liking and skill level (the drawers and glass doors are optional).
Also detailed is a very nice looking five-drawer desk with tapered legs. Details on this project include some tongue and groove joinery, a veneered frame and panel top, and an interesting little pencil tray for one of the drawers.
The tips and techniques section shows how to make a router edge guide, an edge sanding fence, and a hand plane saddle.
Other topics covered in this issue include aerosol finishes, dealing with plywood on a table saw, roundover bits, and shop organization.
Like always, this issue of Woodsmith is worth picking up.
