FWW, PopWood, and Wood. FWW and PopWood are the finest (tie) out there. They both approach at about the same level, both have wondeful projects, both have good how-to’s, both have lots of well-written articles besides their projects, but FWW is at the level of National Geographic in the excellence of their photography and illustrations. Hands down the best.

As soon as the Wood subscription is up, it’s gone. It used to be a good magazine, but lately projects have gotten embarrassingly simplistic and repetitive, tool tests are deplorably predictable, and I know they have to make a living, but 2/3 of the magazine is adds, the web site is just about all adds, and they sell everything whereas FWW and PopWood give a great deal for free. Oh, my subscription to Wood is not up until Nov 2013 and every issue (the last 4 of which hit file 13 within an hour of delivery) I get ‘Last Chance’ renewal demands.

Gave up on Woodsmith as the projects got boring. They are, however a sure cure for insomnia on their tv show. It’s a shame because they are nice guys, genuinely talented and offer quite a bit of information. Just the presentation is a little off-putting. Had to cut back somewhere.
