Woodturning

Issue 398 In issue 398 of Woodturning magazine we have lots for you to enjoy, beginning with our Guest Editor, Andrew Potocnik, who welcomes you to the issue; turns old Douglas fir stair treads into a light; and introduces the intricate work of Australian turner Gary Field. In Projects, Andy Coates turns a porringer from green oak; Les Symonds makes a noughts and crosses game; Colwin Way creates a beautiful part-resin bowl from a wormy piece of elm; Ian Woodford turns a sphere box from spalted beech and bubinga; Sue Harker turns a beaded vase; John Hawkswell makes a set of colourful ‘wonky’ mushrooms; and James N Duxbury turns an ‘eclipse’ tray using contrasting timbers. In our Techniques section, Kurt Hertzog answers readers’ questions; Adrian Jacobs makes a jig to cut wedges for segmented turning; and Richard Findley uses the skills learned from the exercises in the previous issues to make two different tool handle designs with just a skew chisel. In Features, Mark Beckett, the Gentleman Woodturner, explains how woodturning helped bring him back from the brink of death; Mark Palma explains why he now designs his turning projects according to their intended use; and Pete Moncrieff-Jury contemplates the concept of original ideas. Plus we have a sneak peek of our next issue, updates from the turning community and news from the Worshipful Company of Turners. All this and more in Woodturning 398!
