This Friday , February 1 , is the last day to subscribe to Woodworking Magazine to ensure you get the Spring 2008 issue delivered right to your door.

Inside, the Spring issue, you’ll find plans and step-by-step instructions for building two Stickley Tabourets, as well as technique articles on understanding backsaws and learning how to use a handsaw properly for the best results. Plus, we investigate and test the various methods for cutting perfect circles and settle on the best technique. You’ll also find plans for a handsome circular cutting board, and discover how to apply glaze for the best results.

Coming up in the Summer issue (on which we’re now hard at work!), we take a look at finger joints, and how to cut them better and cheaper , no $300+ jig or table saw needed , you can make your own jig out of plywood and get perfect results!
Then, we use the finger joint to build an adaptation of a Shaker blanket chest and a sea chest with tapered sides.  Plus, you’ll find technique articles on trimming end grain with both hand tools and power tools, and step-by-step instructions for producing an aged painted finish. You’ll also find a review of woodworking screws , and will likely be surprised by our conclusions (the most expensive aren’t the best).
