On the Level
by Christopher Schwarz
Is wood a precious natural resource that we should treat like gold, or is it something even more important for the woodworker?

Holtzapffel Workbench
by Christopher Schwarz
We revive a 19th-century bench that was designed just for cabinetmakers. This unique and simple bench blends the best features from German, French and English designs.

Wall-hung Tool Racks
by Robert W. Lang
Toolboxes, chest and cabinets are ideal for storing your tools during transport, but they aren't convenient for the workshop. The classic solution is to build a simple rack above the bench. After experimenting in our shop, we found the best dimensions to create a simple rack that holds a wide array of tools.

Questions, comments and wisdom from readers, experts and our staff. Get some advice on laminating tops, wedging tenons and how long your handplanes should be.

Discover Flush-cut Saw Techniques
by Glen D. Huey
Whatever you do, don't use your flush-cutting saw the way that the woodworking catalogs show you. You'll end up with a bent blade. Here's the right way to use these saws so they cut pegs and tenons flush without marring your work surface.

Be a Better Borer

Drilling accurate holes freehand is a skill worth learning. Our simple exercises will show you how to bore accurate and true with an electric drill or a bit and brace.

Pumpkin Pine
by Glen D. Huey
You don't have to wait 200 years for your pine to develop a beautiful amber glow. How about one day and three off-the-shelf products?

End Grain: Caught in the Act
