Christopher Schwarz shares his method for flattening the top of a solid-wood workbench. Adam Cherubini provides a list of 18th-century tools every woodworker should have in their kit. Our I Can Do That project is a Shaker firewood box. Jig Journal features a scratch-stock you can make quickly and easily. Rob Millard shows us how to create a simple fan inlay. We test four honing guides. A great method for hiding your mistakes. Tool Test takes a close look at a new jointer/planer combination machine from Grizzly. Detailed article previews are below.
