Comments (0)

In this blog, we take a look at 2 Woodcraft Magazine Issues. First, issue #49, currently on a newsstand near you as well as every Woodcraft store nationwide.  Secondly, we will also take a preview look-in at our 50th Anniversary publication.

Expand your creativity with an Arts & Crafts Bookcase offered in Issue #49 of Woodcraft Magazine.  Let furnituremaker, Tom Svec show you how to make this traditional favorite with a few tips and tricks built in.

Also in this issue, you will find a great gift item for the holidays in this Doll High Chair, created by Chuck Hedlund.  This pairs up nicely with the pendulum doll cradle plan, Woodcraft item #149409 featured in the Oct/Nov 2008 issue, Woodcraft  Item #500025.

Additionally featured is a project you can learn on how to build a Chippendale Mirror with Mario Rodriquez.

Two Issues

Informative articles are within these issue #49 pages on Fixing Finishing Flaws with Jeff Jewitt, Handling Sheet Goods written by Paul Anthony, Lumber Grades and making the right wood choice for your project and an informational piece on the usefulness of Marking & Cutting Gauges.  This and much more is inside issue #49, with the traditional Cut Lists,  Convenience-Plus Buying Guides, Woodworking Tips with Tommy Mac and of course, Hot New Tools.

In celebration of our 50th Issue, we are offering a FREE Quilt Stand Project Plan Download! See page 2 of this anniversary special edition for more details.

In this issue, you will find 3 How-To projects.  An All-American Pie Safe, Salt and Pepper Mills and a Tablesaw Miter Sled.

The woodworking talents of Nick Cook are demonstrated in the Six Finishes for Woodturners article.  Here Nick goes through the criteria of choosing the right finish for the right project with the following in mind.  Type of wood, size, intended use, durability, drying time considerations, desired sheen, ease of application, solvent or water based, cleanup, repairability, food safe issues and finish, are all considerations in what Nick calls, “Having Sanding Savvy” to combat any surprises you may encounter.

This anniversary issue goes through the Best Woodcraft Tools of 2012 and the magazine’s Timeline of Success starting from the beginning to where we are today.

Two Issues

Other articles covering Resawing Basics, Plywood Cutting Guides, The Well-Stocked Shop inclusive of Masks and Respirators are included.

Other details are covered in this video with Jim Harrold, Editor-In-Chief of Woodcraft Magazine.

In the Mailbox section of issue #50, we introduce Woodcraft Magazine’s first book on “14 Boxes You Can Make”.  This will make a great holiday gift for the woodworker on your Christmas list.
