The July issue of The Woodworker, now incorporating Good Woodworking, combines the best elements of both titles to bring you a publication that is bigger and definitely better. Now comprising 100 pages, we hope you enjoy the new articles we’ve got in store for you. In our new ‘projects & turning’ section, Colin Simpson turns a magic trick; Niall Yates explains the making of his Baroque cabinet; Les Thorne comes up with a novel way of presenting a hole in one ball to a lucky golfer; Chris Finch builds his own heirloom rocking horse, and Phil Davy repairs and restores one of several Victorian church windows. On the technical side of things, Robin Gates describes some favourite hand tools; Dave Roberts brings us a new story from the borderlands; Edward Hopkins throws a curver; John Bullar considers the advantages of laminating over other bending methods, and Peter Bishop looks at what happens when timber comes under attack. Our ‘features’ section is certainly packed and kicks off with Robin Gates looking at an emergency food safe from the May 1944 edition of The Woodworker. Next, Ben Naylor, MD Jack Badger of Ltd, explains how making good use of wood scraps turned into a lesson on how businesses and schools can collaborate to help solve the industry’s skills gap, before Peter Sefton Furniture School graduate Simon Denton tells us of his plans to forge a successful career combining his two lifelong passions: music and furniture making. You’ll be pleased to hear that our ‘on test’ section is bigger and better than ever, featuring a whole host of brand-new tools and machinery for you to lust over, starting with the Bosch Professional GOP 55-36 multi-cutter, followed by the exciting new Makita LS1019L 260mm compound mitre saw with laser. If carving is more your thing, then take a look at Axminster’s range of Japanese carver's files, and if you’re a fan of cordless sanding, you’ll be impressed by Ryobi’s R18BS-0 belt sander. Despite the merging of our two magazines, you can still expect to find all your usual favourite pages, plus some new ones to boot. And for those new readers, we have a great prize up for grabs: send in your top workshop hint or tip and you could be in with a chance of getting your hands on a magnificent Veritas low-angle jack plane, worth over £250. See our letters page for details - good luck! All this and much more in the first issue of The Woodworker, now incorporating Good Woodworking, which is now on sale!
