I subscribe to Shop Notes and Fine Woodworking online. I like the signal to noise ratio in Shop Notes and always find at least 2 or 3 good ideas in every issue. FWW is largely for the archive and I’m most likely going to cancel soon, as I’ve consumed most of what I’m interested in. Popular Woodworking just doesn’t appeal to me. Too much fluff, not enough stuff. I pick up the occasional single issue of Wood magazine if it has a project that appeals to me.

I don’t envy the woodworking magazine publishers these days. So much free content online that, quite honestly, is better than what they have. If you were to tell me I had a choice between paying 5 bucks a month for all the current woodworking magazines, but not use Lumberjocks and Youtube, or use Lumberjocks and Youtube and not be allowed to subscribe, I’d laugh at you because that’s no choice at all.
