  • What WW magazines do you read?

    Wondering which wood working magazines you read and/or subscribe to. Which do you think consistently have the most useful information?

    I was at Borders book store last night and the quantity and quality of WW magazines is overwhelming

    Currently I subscribe to Handyman and Woodsmith and plan to subscribe to Shop Notes next.

    I shudder at the thought of it, but I just counted and I think I buy them all...

    My two favourites though are "Wood" & Fine Woodworking. Every now and again I buy one that really hits the spot and find lots of things in it that I either build, want to build or put on hold for the future.

    So many projects, so little time...

      i just subscribed to Popular Woodworking. I have been buying it off the shelf for several months and it has good articles. They only publish 6 issues/yr, but the content is good. Some other monthly magazines are thin on content.

        I subscribe to Woodsmith, Wood and Am. Woodworker, but also buy Pop. WW'ing off the shelf a lot. Shopnotes, I buy depending on the articles. I think they all vary somewhat, as to interest to me---think the key is getting a good price on the subscription---Wood, I got for a $10.00/yr. promotion through Woodcraft. Am. WW'r was also on a special my grandneice was selling through Girl Scouts.

        As to FWW---think I just bought my last copy---they are the most expensive on the shelf and just raised their price a buck (now $7.95)---I'll wait for the movie

          Was shocked when I did the research, I subscribe to Am Woodworker, Woodworkers Journal, Woodsmith, Wood, Popular Woodworking, Shopnotes, Workbench, Family Handyman and ocsionally but Fine Woodworking off the shelf. All have they're good and bad points but I seem to find something of interst in every issue.

            I subscribe to Wood, Woodsmith, and Shopnotes. I prefer the latter two, primarily because of the lack of advertising [img]smile.gif[/img] . Even though there is less content per issue, I think I use that content to a greater degree than that of other magazines.

              Am. Woodworker and Shopnotes. And about three zillion catalogs.
