Well, my daughter had her 2nd B-Day party today, and when my folks come up to KC they brought me 27 back issues of Wood Magazine from the late 80’s to the late 90’s…....pretty cool!!!

Great gift! The WOOD magazine has some very nice projects and Info in them. Although the sales adds might be a little outdated.haha

i always laugh when people want $4 an issue for back issues. 1/2 the articles are about tools/models that are no longer available. I do love when I can get backissues at the price you did though. Well designed/constructed furniture will always have it’s place. nice grab.

Yeah, there are some good projects in there, but more than that, I like to look at the old sales adds for power tools. Too bad inflation happens… shop would be a lot better outfitted at the 1990’s prices.
