i just wanted to voice my condolences to woodwork magazine. i LOVED that magazine, more so than any other woodworking mag out there. i loved how it wasn’t so mainstream. it totally filled an area of woodworking that is sorely lacking in other publications with its articles on exhibits and various artists. it was INSPIRING to read. i will be so sad to see it go, and i wish i could afford to own all the back issues i don’t have. i will also be sad to receive the replacement subscription as i am NOT a fan (at all) of it….i don’t even know if i can publish what i think of the quality of that mag without getting in trouble here….let’s just say i don’t think it’s fit to be toilet paper.

I wasn’t aware that they were going to be discontinued. Woodwork was one of my favorites. I know they were taken over by American Woodworker but I thought they would continue a great magazine.

Woodwork Magazine was bought by New Track Media. publishers of American Woodworker from Ross Periodicals. New Track Media made commitments to many followers of Woodwork Magazine that they would continue publishing it in the same format and with the same content as it was when owned by Ross Periodicals. It was the only woodworking magazine I subscribed to. I will not renew the substitution of the American Woodworker and I would suggest that anyone the subscribes to the American Woodworker cancel their subscription in protest.
