So today I finally received the late Christmas gift I purchased for myself. On eBay I had found 3 lots of WOOD magazines. 76 issues in on ranging from 1993 to 2007. Missing a few here and there throughout the years. But ultimately picked up all 76 magazines for $76.75 with $21 shipping. Took 1 week to arrive. Total cover price would have been $604.20 not counting tax. I paid total of $97.75 with an awesome savings of $506.45. Works out to $1.29 a magazine. Not bad deal I think. Gives me something to read through and learn from before I actually get my workshop built and get some tools in it. Maybe I’ll try and find the missing issues from those years and fill in the collection.

Missing: 76-83,95,97,106-107,109-112,124-126,128-129,131-133,135-136,139-147,178,179,180,181

Not bad. They have WOOD magazines at my local BookMans used book store. (and other woodworking mags) All run $2.00 an issue so you got a good deal from hear.

On the infrequent occasion I see them at Half Price Books, they go for about $2.00 a piece. So you got a steal…

Doesn’t Wood Magazine have like a 25 year collection in digital format on DVD or something like that?

The Half-Priced Books here in a town I found 1 magazine for $0.50 and then at another store it was about a few dollars for another so I decided to pass on that one. Problem is out of the 5 Half-Priced stores I stopped at in town I only seen the 2 magazines 1 of which I picked up. That is why I was thrilled to find the selection I did on eBay. :)

WOOD does have a digital collection. I’m all about computers and having that kind of resource but I always like having a magazine or such in hand to flip through and read etc. I’ve already started drilling some of the latest magazines I’ve had with holes and putting them in large notebook binders.
