They are by the same publisher. One has bigger projects, the other shop tips and jigs.

Woodsmith, Shopnotes, Wood, Popular Woodworking, American Woodworker, Fine Woodworking, Woodworker’s Journal, and WoodCraft. I subscribe to most of them. I’m a magazine addict.

Fine Woodworking and Shop Notes. I had a sub to WOOD but I had a problem with receiving the magazine on time and the content, to me, has taken a downward turn. I cancelled it not too long ago.

I think we went through this before….but always a good time for an up date…..I’ve been hearing that wood has taken a turn downwards…..I still get it….I got one of those 3 year “promotional” subs. It’s not too bad….lots of adds…..thats why I like woodsmith and shop notes….but I would wish that they would quit building the same old bookshelves and get to more interesting stuff….I like the LJ’s cyberzine….at least it mentions the blogs and discussions that are most notable here…..the shiny mags should take a look at the content here to see what woodworkers are really interested in….....we get more content here than in any of the zines…..

I’ve just given up on the mags. Too much repetition for me, and most of the projects (rocking horse???? Sure.) are not for me. I do sub to Woodshop News for info on fellow WWers.

FWW and the occasional Shopnotes. I had a subscription to Furniture and Cabinetmaking, from the UK. It has some good stuff, but is a bit expensive.

I have been through a lot of them over the years, Fine Woodworking, Wood, Shopnotes, American Woodworker. I currently only subscribe to Woodsmith. I do get This Old House also which is nice for construction, and it does occasionally provide some good woodworking ideas.
