If you’ve always wanted to try your hand at bent lamination, but were a little intimidated by all the forms and jigs that seemed to be necessary, here’s a project for you.

And this small Desktop Message Center is just the ticket for storing the day’s mail and jotting down reminders with its pop-up note dispenser.

There’s also a review of the new ProMiter-100 Digital Miter Gauge. And for a unique finish, try wood bleaching.
It’s all there in the current issue of Woodsmith magazine.
