In this issue, we debut "Design Matters," a column by George R. Walker that will give you the tools to tackle furniture design with skill and confidence. Joinery details bring a special charm to a Stickley Music Cabinet and a Japanese soji screen provides the inspiration for a contemporary Soji Cabinet. Create A Tapered-leg Table in this issue's I Can Do That project, and provocative "upholstery" explores the tension between comfort and discomfort in a unique 988 Chair. Toolmaker Kevin Drake teaches you how to make Turned Tool Handles and Tom Fidgen constructs a hand-made cabinetmaker's toolbox that is certainly One for the Road. The Arts & Mysteries column shows you how to make Andre Roubo's Try Square and Jim Crammond revives a clever 19th-century tool and provides everything you'll need to build a Cam Marking Gauge. Chairmaker Michael Dunbar explores traditional Milk Paint and Bob Flexner helps you with Choosing a Spray Gun. We review Delta's New Midi-lathe and Rob Porcaro explores ways to create Better Vision in the Shop. Plus reader Letters, Tricks of the Trade, Out of the Woodwork and more.
