Woodsmith Vol 29 / No. 172 - Review

woodsmith29_172.jpgThis month, Woodsmith provides another out of the park home run with an issue crammed full of good articles, tips, and advice. Of all the woodworking magazines that we read, Woodsmith is the only one that consistently exceeds our high expectations.

This time around, the main project is a nice hall bench complete with tall coat hooks and a backboard. There's some tricky joinery and plenty of detail work, but if you're not up to the whole thing, the project can be scaled back to just the chest piece making things quite a bit easier.

Other solid articles include one on built-up crown molding, a great one on finishing supplies, and a primer on table saw joinery. Oh, and there's a terrific article on oak.

Continue reading to see what tools are covered in this issue.

There is a lot in the way of tools in this issue. "Choosing the Right Router for your Table," is an informative piece, as is "Mastering the Sliding Miter Saw." And for those of you who demand that your work be precise to the 128th of an inch, there is a great piece titled, "Table Saw Alignment Jigs."

As always the Tips and Techniques section is great, this time featuring the most inventive bar clamp storage rack we've ever seen.

As always, we recommend not only buying this issue, but subscribing to the magazine.
