Woodworker's Journal March/April 2014

Art Deco Cabinet: Art Deco design features like geometric lines and simple elegance combine with modern functionality: a double-decker pullout drawer makes this piece perfect for use as a nightstand, end table or more. Classic Limbert Bookcase: Inspired by the style of an Arts & Crafts-era designer, this bookcase uses simple rabbet and dado joinery, plus template routing to recreate distinguished details like square cutouts and radiused corners. Today's Shop: Woodworker's Journal senior editor Chris Marshall pays tribute to his shop's standby tools: what couldn't he live without? Shop Test: Sandor Nagyszalanczy walks you through all the options for heating up your shop. What's available? How much heat do you need? What's most cost-effective? It's all in here. Jigs & Fixtures: One 4x8 sheet of plywood creates two clamp racks, storing over 80 clamps apiece, in Chris Marshall's practical, inexpensive shop storage project. Accordion Wall Lamp: This lamp's scissor arm extends up to 57 inches from the wall, literally bringing the light to the task. It involves several duplicate pieces: the builders encourage you to "jig up" every chance you get during construction. Bedroom Valet: Master woodworker Ian Kirby walks you through the thought process for designing a functional, purpose-built piece, like this Bedroom Valet for clothing and suitcase storage.
