When we compiled the 1985-2014 American Woodworker dvd, we didn’t realize that one issue – December 1985 – was missing from the inherited electronic files.
This was brought to our attention by an eagle-eyed reader (thank you eagle-eyed reader), so we tracked down a copy and are offering that entire issue, free. (And we will, of course, add it to the dvd the next time we press more copies.)
Inside, this issue you’ll find instruction from such woodworking luminaries as Christian Becksvoort, Franklin Gottshall and Carlyle Lynch, and topics ranging from turning to steam-bending to dovetails, and how to sell your work (in 1985).
