Product Description

QM09 November/December 2021


The latest issue of Quercus features Jennie Alexander, author of Make a Chair from a Tree, with an extract from her new edition of perhaps the most significant of chairmaking books. You’ll find all the jigs and devices to make a post and rung chair, while elsewhere this issue Laura Mays tells how Krenov School students make a wooden plane the day they start, James Journigan shows how it’s often quicker to make your own tools than rely on machines, and how woodworkers can learn from the past. Robin Gates, Alex Walshaw, Wycliffe Stutchbury and David Keys make furniture from reclaimed wood, Ethan Sincox restores a hand drill, Derek Jones shows how to choose a block plane, and many others reveal why they love woodworking by hand.


Jennie Alexander provides a compendium of devices and jigs for making chairs.
