Default American Woodworker

Don't know if this is common knowledge or not but the Aug/Sept issue will be the last issue. Subscriptions will be transferred to Popular Woodworking. For those who already subscribe to Popular Woodworking the subscription will be extended.

American Woodworker and Popular Woodworking are sister companies based in Cincinnati, OH.

This information came from one of the customer service reps when I called to pay an invoice.

Looked at their web site they are still taking subscriptions,seem a little crooked to me.
They did not mention anything about moving your subscription to popular wood.

Was it actually AW's website, or a 3rd party? AW actually isn't!

I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.

Click on the "Subscribe" button and the details will follow. It does appear they are closing doors.

Default American Woodworker: done

As a survivor from the ad sales business ... it's not pretty out there in print ad sales. The electronic edition of the August/September 2014 issue of American Woodworker arrived in my inbox this morning, coincidentally.

Here's the official statement from AW:


Quote:
After much analysis and discussion with our team, we have made the difficult decision that American Woodworker magazine will publish its last issue (August/September 2014) this summer. Back issues of American Woodworker will still be available at AW Magazine Issues.

For years we have provided the very best information and instruction that you our readers demand. Due to changes in the market, and the magazine industry, it was no longer economically viable to publish the magazine.

After the last issue of American Woodworker mails, all subscribers will receive Popular Woodworking magazine which will continue to provide you with the best instruction and woodworking projects.

Thank you for your interest in American Woodworker.

Popular Woodworking focuses a lot on hand tools. Might be interesting to see if the content changes or expands after the merger.

You don't suppose that all the ads on forums are putting them out business?

Yes, among other things. I know I don't subscribe to near as many woodworking mags as I used to. I can find most anything I need, when I need it online. That and how many how to articles does one really need to read on any specific topic? Sooner or later the topic gets exhausted! I used to buy some just for the adds.. internet did stop that.
