PROJECTS
Sliding-top Table
It's a table for two or a table for four. When extra seating is needed, the nested tops slide apart effortlessly to double the size of the table.

Book Rack
Here's a small weekend project that combines a classic Arts & Crafts look with some great joinery. It's also a great chance to try your hand at some simple chip carving.

Scraper Plane
A fine tool that's as pleasing to look at as it is to use. A wood wedge and a brass finger screw hold the scraper at just the right angle to produce thin, wispy shavings.

Piano Stool
Modelled on an old-fashioned piano stool. A wooden thread is the secret to adjusting the height of this stool.
