In our Projects section, Josh Brower explains how the top for an impressive walnut boardroom table was made; Brian Holcombe builds bookcases and shoji to complete a tea room; Thomas Eddolls describes how he made a four-seater table from elm and oak; Anthony Bailey explores the history of a late Georgian drop-leaf table; Michael T Collins makes an antique-style board and box for a chess set; Dennis Zongker adds a variety of embellishments to the headboard of a king-size mahogany bed; Diego Carelli makes a wall-mounted locker with a circular ‘ripple’ effect; and Israel Martin describes the techniques used to make a Shaker-inspired ebonised pine bench.
In Techniques, Mitch Peacock prepares a mind-bending dovetail joint; woodturner Richard Findley explains how he makes quadrant mouldings for bespoke units; and Louise Biggs explores various different methods of veneering.
In Features, we discover how a clever use of furniture can transform even the smallest of spaces; we showcase George Peirce’s Strung chair, the winner of the Gordon Russell Design Competition; and we take a closer look at antique American furniture sold by Bonhams.
