Product Description

QM06 May/June 2021


This issue of Quercus features a profile of Mike Abbott, an icon and pioneer of greenwoodworking, who has inspired and taught so many professionals and enthusiasts, particularly making chairs. Elsewhere you will learn how Greenwood Days has adapted its courses to meet Covid-19 guidelines; how in the USA Maplewoodwoodshop has created a system for bringing woodwork & design back to school; how in Australia HNT Gordon are makers of great planes, and now have their own vices; how in Japan birch is split for making chairs and how Dylan Iwakuni makes a protector for his chisels; and how in Canada Richard Wile answers questions on sharpening & tool renovation. Quercus is, I hope you will agree, going global, and we welcome anyone to take part from anywhere.
