None of them are good enough for a subscription. I subscribed to Fine Woodworking for several years but they just constantly regurgitate the same projects, using the same basic joinery, from their books. I rarely buy an issue now. If you just want to read something then they are okay but if you want to learn then I would just get their books. I buy Wood once in awhile. I don’t build the projects but they often have good tips and it’s interesting to see them play around with joinery even if they are sometimes prone to complicating things. Woodsmith is a nice magazine which I’ve only recently really started reading.

British woodworking mags are the best but they are very difficult to find in my area and I only have a few. The ones I have do not focus on projects but on artists and craftsman and woodworking in general. The articles are excellent and the pictures display master craftsmanship.
