January/February 2019 Issue Preview
For many of us, the weather outside is frightful, but that’s all the more reason to get out to the shop and work up some sweat making the projects you’ll find in the January/February 2019 issue of Woodworker’s Journal. Chris Marshall’s Router Table Organizer will help you maximize the empty space under your rolling table. Need even more shop storage? A Krenov-inspired shop cabinet will give you space to store all your hand tools. Our experts chime in with tips for the new year, including learning how to bore holes with your lathe, everything you need to know about the miter saw and thoughts on when (and where) to finish with shellac. Plus we have plans for a useful Contemporary Hall Table and instructions for making your own shop knives.
