I’m not near a Woodcraft, and the local bookstores don’t carry it (used to). I like it, so when a too good to pass up subscription rate came up, I didn’t pass. The first issue came today (with the Woodwhisperer’s and Karson’s Projects within… but, alas, I find it (the magazine) leaves me wanting more. ( a few more projects, articles, something… feels “incomplete” next to the pile of Wood and FWW next to the bed, couch, etc…

For House and deck type projects, Workbench is pretty good. but I stopped subscribing. I did a somewhat unorthodox undermount sink idea from a kichen redo series they ran a few years back.

I try to read all the ones on the newsstand over a coffee (Starbuck at the B&N near work). I usually pick up one or two from most publishers over the course of the year… probably would be cheaper to just break down and buy them all… but if I didn’t read them on a lunch break, I’d probably never have the time to keep up with so many.

If I had to boil it down to just two, It would easily be Wood and FWW. with most of the others mentioned above on a per issue basis depending on the content.
