Welcome to Weekend Warrior Woodworking Magazine! A quarterly magazine that is completely free. The magazine contains articles, projects and shop tours written by woodworkers from all over just like you and I. If you are at all like me, you work at all of hours of the day and night in the shop. A three day weekend means an extra day or night in the shop. I know I am not the only one who walks in from their shop and realizes that it’s 1:30 in the morning or even later. I subscribe to all of the regular traditional magazines and I do enjoy them all, but truth be told I don’t always have the time and resources available to build a “Line and Berry Chest” or one of the more intricate projects that are featured in many of the magazines. Sometimes I need something simpler, that takes less time to make and can be easily adapted for my small one car garage shop. My shop and skills are constantly evolving and I would not have it any other way. Might not be my dream shop but it’s my man cave! A place where ideas and projects are created along with the satisfaction I get when I place a custom piece of furniture in my house or someone else’s. I know I am not alone, in fact I would venture a guess that I am in the majority.

Best of all anyone who is a woodworker can contribute to the magazine. There are no prerequisites, no résumés, no need to show a portfolio and you don’t need to have any writing experience. Just a passion for woodworking that you would like to share with the community. Now here is the rub, this is not a profit making venture, there are no high dollar advertisers or parent publishing company footing the bill, so I cannot compensate anyone for their work. I can promise that I will give you full credit for the article and make sure that it is never reproduced or republished without your consent.

If you are interested in becoming a contributor click here. If there is something specific you would like to see in the magazine click here and let know. This is driven by the community, so if there is a project or regular column you would like to see let me know.

This is going to be an electronic magazine and I am hoping to incorporate some cool multimedia features into it. You can expect to see the first issue out sometime in December. If you subscribed to the magazine you will get updates on the progress and notified when you can expect the first issue. Don’t forget to visit the blog, for regular updates and posts. If you subscribe to the magazine, thank you! If not, why not? It’s FREE!!!
