In issue 248 of Furniture&Cabinetmaking we have lots for you to enjoy. In our ‘Projects and Techniques’ section, Derek Jones builds a rock solid Moxon vice with extra bite; in an extract taken from Great Designs from Fine Woodworking: Furniture, Chris Gochno uses pegged mortise-and-tenon joints to make a cabinet; Anne Briggs Bohnett constructs a dovetailed writing desk; Derek Jones lifts the lid on the Dowelmax router table lift to find that not all routers are created equally; Charles Mak makes some distinctive dovetailed wall shelves featuring angles that will challenge your joinery and assembly skills; and Geoffrey Laycock puts cutting guides to the test.
In ‘Design and Inspiration’ Catherine Kielthy meets Californian furniture maker and marquetarian Paul Schürch, who likes nothing more than to push boundaries; we have a gallery of work from the annual Celebration of Craftsmanship and Design; Kieran Binnie combines functionality and decoration with a lamb’s tongue chamfer; and in Under the Hammer, we look at a chest of drawers dating from 1670.
As well as all this, we also have ‘Leader’ from the Editor; ‘News&Events’; ‘F&CUK&readers’ letters’; ‘Editor’s round-up’ and ‘Workshop library’, where we have a number of furniture-related reads that we think you’ll enjoy, as well as our website of the month.
