Default Which magazine would you recommend?

Iím thing about subscribing to a woodworking magazine, but there are so many to choose from. Before I subscribe to one I thought I would seek out the advice of other forum members. Especially those members familiar with U.S. available woodworking magazines. Primarily Iím interested in one that frequently features router articles and projects. Also I prefer the magazines featured ďto build projectsĒ to include detailed sketches giving you a good idea how and what it takes to build the featured project. So there it is. Iíd be interested in which one members would recommend and why?

I would make a trip to a book store that has a good size magazine rack & look though the different magazines & find one you like. In my area I go to Boarders Books. There are many magazines to choose from. I have a habit of buying them everytime I run into ones that I do not have. Woodworkers Journal is one of many that fits your description. Shop Notes has many features on different jigs & shop related articles to read & follow for a build of your own.

I can't think of one that focuses on router articles, but they do contain router tips and jigs specials from time to time.

1. Wood
2. Shop Notes
3. Wood Smith
4. American Woodworker
5. Popular Woodworking

Hello, Roger, I think that Noob and the others have the important ones covered. Barnes and Nobles has one that is called Routers, You might check that one, Lots of good material. Also, The Net. has lots of good stuff as well.

These two are the absolute best for the complete beginner all the way to professional. Your skills never outgrow the instruction, plans and tutorials. Yet, if you have no skills every magazine is still full of stuff you can do.
