Issue six of Woodworking Magazine is now available for sale on our website and is on its way to bookstores. (Just about every Barnes & Noble and Borders carries it, so those are good places to look in the coming weeks). It will be on sale on the newsstands until Sept. 15, after which it will be available only on our website.
As a special treat for the readers of this weblog, we also are making available the SolidWorks files for this issue today. These 3D models of our American Trestle Table and Traditional Sawbench will help you understand the joinery and subassemblies.
An industrious person could even build these projects without the printed version of the magazine, but there’s some good information in the printed magazine I think you’ll want one.
You can open these SolidWorks files using a free little program from SolidWorks that you can download for both Mac and Windows machines. With the program, you can open up the drawing file and examine the project to your heart’s content. These SolidWorks files were drawn by reader and draughtsman Louis Bois, who has prepared SolidWorks files of many of the other projects from the first five issues, which are now available on CD.
We hope you enjoy the new issue. Let us know what you think of it. As always, your comments guide our future course.
