Articles & Publications

John currently writes a very popular series of thought provoking articles for British Woodworking entitled Fundamentals.  He also regularly reports on in-depth testing of various tools he encounters.  All but his most recent articles may be viewed here.

For many years prior to this, John was a monthly contributor to Furniture & Cabinetmaking magazine.



British Woodworking

British Woodworking is aimed at woodworkers worldwide, but likes to promote British craftsmanship, British timber and British innovation. It focusses on hand skills because it believes they are the beating heart of any workshop, but it also tests the latest machines, power tools and gadgets, and study techniques that incorporate a wide range of tools and equipment.


Furniture and Cabinetmaking

Furniture & Cabinetmaking is the only woodworking magazine focused exclusively on fine furniture making. It reports on the latest styles, reflects the best of contemporary design, and also respects the traditions of the past, not only in the UK but worldwide. It features projects and technical articles by and for professional and non-professional designer/makers, with the aim of promoting excellence in furniture making.
