The cover project is an Arts & Crafts Sideboard by Robert W. Lang that combines classic elements from Gustav Stickley, Harvey Ellis and Greene & Greene. Michael Dunbar reveals how to Understand & Use a Bowsaw - a traditional tool that is woefully misunderstood by modern woodworkers. In his second installment, Toshio Odate and his assistant add an innovative drawer design to Magobei's Dining Table. Marc Adams contends that Veneer is the Future, and in this first of a series of articles he shows how to get started using this material that was used on the finest furniture of the past. A shop experiment answers the question Where Does the Glue Go? and leads its author to adopt a new gluing technique. Peter Follansbee shows how to build an unusual 17th-century Three-legged Turned Chair and this issue's I Can Do That project is a rustic Factory Cart Coffee Table. Bob Flexner teaches you the best ways to Optimize a Spray Gun and George R. Walker takes us on a visit to the shop of designer and craftsman Brooke Smith. And our staff tests an Earlex Spray Station, a Karl Holtey No. 82 and the Bosch Power Box stereo in this issue's Tool Test. Plus your Letters, Tricks of the Trade, Glossary and more.
