f\ Quality Projects for a quick fix
f you're like many of us, the shop occasionally becomes quiet during the dog days of summer. Push sticks are traded for nine irons, and material lists sometimes take a back seat to vacation maps. We know how it is. But once the kids head back to school and evenings take a chill, I'll bet you're itching for a good project plan again. Fall is here after all ... it's time to sharpen the chisels, blow off the dust and kick the table saw back into gear!
Well, we've got just the "fix" you need in this Woodworker's Journal Special Interest Publication. We've gathered 13 quick weekend projects and some fine technique articles that will hone your woodworking skills and get you back in the groove, so to speak. But, let me assure you — quick does not mean cheesy. These projects may only take two or three days to complete, but it will be quality shop time. Have a look at the Fluted-Door Wall Cabinet (page 28), our Arts & Crafts Style Side Table (page 76) or the Mahogany Serving Tray on page 36 and you'll see just what I mean. Top-shelf projects.
Maybe you're planning to buy a few new tools this fall. Before you pull out your credit card, be sure to read Chris Marshall's feature story on "Power Tools that Will Grow with You." He's been one of our top tool reviewers for years, and his advice will help you find the right tools to keep your shop humming for many autumns to come.
Summertime is sweet, and t hate to see it go, but I've definitely got the woodworking bug again. Are you with me? Then dive into this special issue and start planning. With projects this good, it's going to be a busy weekend!
Special Projects Editor Chris Marshall offers sensible tool-buying advice for the long term on page 8.
