If you’ve been reading Popular Woodworking Magazine for more than a decade, two “new” products won’t be new to you: “Workbenches & Toolboxes” and “Great American Furniture.” Both are “SIPs” (special-interest publications) that we offered only on newsstands, before I joined the PWM staff (so they’re really old). But they’re chock-full of great information, and while much of our legacy content (a fancy industry term for existing material) has long been available as digital downloads at ShopWoodworking.com, these two took a bit of work to make them download-ready.

In “Great American Furniture,” you’ll find 11 classic projects. Representing Shaker: a Candle Stand by Malcolm Huey, Glen Huey’s Press Cupboard (his most popular project ever) and a hand-tool Stepstool by Jim Stuard. Designs from the 18th-century include: simple sliding-lid Candle Boxes by Troy Sexton, a Butler’s Tray Table by Jim Stuard and Glen Huey’s Pennsylvania Spice Box. The Arts & Crafts period is represented by: a Greene & Greene side table by Steve Shanesy and David Thiel’s Morris Chair.
