Recentantly picked up a copy of Woodturning magazine at Barnes & Noble to keep me busy during my recuperation from surgery. Have know few turners here in the U.S. that subscribe to this UK magazine, surprized to find it on a magazine rack so bought an Agust issue.

Woodturning:
https://www.thegmcgroup.com/pc/viewCategories.asp?idCategory=695

Recommend if find a book store near you that carries this magazine check it out. Like most woodturning books and magazines articles see lot of same information. New turners want the lastest and greatest information on everything concerning turning not understanding everyone has to find their own way regardless type of turning going to do.

Three article with plenty of pictures that made the price of the magazine for me are Catches, Fundamentals of Hollow Turning, and Usefull Workshop Tools.

Richard Faindley’s articles on Catches and explantion on how and when can expect them and avoiding them. When to use and not use traditional square grind, bottom long grind or fingernail, and center long grind Ellsworth, side grind or Irish grind just common sense. His bottom line at end the article right on point with just having to accept them when they happen.

Andy Coates article with pictures on complex side grain hollow forms just outstand. He also explain what to expect when end grain hollowing.

Colwin Way’s, Useful Workshop Tools great for beginers or experienced turners just another outstanding article.

There are other great articles haven’t got around to and probably won’t mentioned them again. Do check local magazine racks for this magazine whether just browsing or buy a copy.

What was the newsstand price you paid?

Good magazine … at the current exchange rate a 2 year subscription is about US$148 dollars.

I usually will flip through it and buy one every once and a while. I just sorted through a stack of magazines to throw out and there was November 2015 issue and was $9.50. Sure it is more now. Not a bad magazine but like many usually an article I find interesting the rest not so much.

Gerry label reads $10.99 probably $0.77 sales tax so less than $12 here. I am not a big magazine subscription guy but for this magazine turning clubs taking out a subscription might be the ticket.

Had an AAW subscription for more than 10 years before dropping it. Did not have a subscription to Woodturning Design for that long may be three years.

Travish find more than three articles in this issue but have not gotten to them. Understand what you are saying about magazines in general.

A lot of good free information on the web hard to find these days, so many sites want you to subscribe so an occasional magazine article might be all you need.

A subscription would make sense for me … around here, finding it in a bookstore or newsstand is hit-and-miss.

There is a company called Lightning Publications that handles Woodturning magazine… the price they advertise is a bit lower …
$74.50 for 12 issues (1 year) or $132.25 for 24 issues (2 years)

Their website is http://lightningpublications.com/ ... their phone number is 1-866-699-6779. It looks like you have to call them to subscribe.

Checked it out the other day at B&N, and it was excellent.
