A Preview of the June 2011 Issue

The June 2011 issue of Popular Woodworking Magazine will start mailing to subscribers soon, so we thought you might want a preview of what to expect. Our cover story, by Editor Christopher Schwarz, chronicles the bookcases that were designed by Thomas Jefferson for his personal library at Monticello. These pine cases were the foundation of our Library of Congress.

For those of you who like to read about woodworking as much as we do, we present the 130 best books on woodworking. Fitting onto a five foot shelf, the editors and some of our most eminent woodworkers weigh in on the tomes that have had the most lasting impression on how they have approached their craft. For those of you who love inlay, Senior Editor Glen D. Huey uses some unconventional techniques to construct a traditional tea caddy.

The secrets of the sector are revealed, as are the many uses of the combination square, and more. And for those of you who can’t wait, we’ve posted our “I Can Do That” article as a free PDF. Of course, there is still plenty of time to subscribe to the magazine, saving 47% off the newsstand price, and receive the June issue in your mailbox.
