I am an avid reader of WoodSmith and ShopNotes magazines. I love that they get right to the point and do not include any advertising. My favorite part of the magazine is usually the readers’ tip section; always at least one useful tip there.
Last week my dw asked if I would like some back issues of WoodSmith as someone offered them up on our local Freecycle network. After saying yes and going to pick them up I found about 25 issues from the mid 90’s until 2001. It was so cool to sit and read them and also to see how the focus of the projects have changed. A lot of furniture to hold VCR tapes and Cds. The introduction of there new website and even their Compuserve email address. Ironically I was reminded about the collection of Deltagram magazines I have and how so many of those projects focused around holding records and also smoking related items. It is just cool to see the progression of the projects over time. They all are essentially the same but just tweaked here and there for the next generation of woodworkers. If you get a chance to look through back issues of any old magazines I hope you can find some new information in them. I know I did in fact I may be attempting a few projects form the older issues.

Have fun in the shop and out.

I have complete collections of Shop notes ,Woodsmith,Finewoodworking ,Wood,and Fine homebuilding . They all take up tons of room but I like being able to find back issues when I want them. I have a couple of computer magazine library’s too that sure speeds up searching.

Gracias Kova,
I have not seen this. But the first page is an awesome portable desk which with some modifications would make a great camp kitchen which is something on my to list. I have saved it for future use.
