Ladies and gentlemen, children of all ages, for your viewing pleasure, here is the moment you’ve been waiting for (drum roll please): the release of the cover of Issue Fourteen!
Over the past two weeks, we’ve slowly unveiled the Table of Contents for this issue as a kind of teaser of what’s to come. Since Issue One, this has been our thing. It may seem a funny practice in the magazine world, where many publications recycle content on an 18-month cycle, but we’re not in the business of filling out page space with throwaway articles. Everything here is new, and exciting, and (we think) timeless. That’s why our back issues are as relevant now as when they were first published – our authors put a ton of effort into what they research and write, and their articles are valuable resources for gaining a deeper understanding of woodworking and handcraft. So if it seems that we’re getting pumped and hyping up each issue as it gets nearer to print, it’s because we are over-the-moon excited about this stuff. And we hope you are too!
The cover features 200-year-old timbers that are being restored for the House By Hand project, as well as a few of the tools from the project. (Note that original red-pencil script on the back-cover timber. Can you decipher it?)
