Question Monthly/Semi/Monthly Router Magazine

Hello all!
I post so seldom that I figured this would be a good section for me. It's not that I am snooty, just that I don't have much to say so make a better listener. Besides I'm here to learn and I can't learn if I'm talking.

First I just last night watched the #101 session and really enjoyed it. I couldn't believe how very fast that Rick routed! I guess thats because of his many years of experience. I recommend this program to all reading.

Now to a question I have that I have never seen addressed before. I would love to be able to subscribe to a router magazine if there were one. Why isn't there one? To some of you router gurus that I have been following for a few years...???

It looks like it would be a good opportunity.

There, I'm through!

I'm also interested in subscribing to a general wood working magazine without wasting time and money. Is there any one that members prefer: Popular Woodworking, Woodcraft Magazine, Shop Notes, etc? Each one says it's the best in the industry - what do the router forum members say?

Except for the Router Workshop I've never seen another site or magazine devoted entirely to routers. This site is heavily focused on routers but not totally devoted to them. While the router is the most versatile woodworking tool, it is hard to make much with nothing but a router which is why general woodworking mags are just fine, in my opinion. If you look at the articles in them, most of the projects involve the use of a router at some point and that's the way my own projects work. I like Fine Woodworking but I've seen others recommended.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I subscribe to numerous Wood Working Magazines and enjoy them all. Magazines are not "interactive" as is this forum. Here, you can post questions and your answers will come from a variety of people from various perspectives, some new router users and some with tremendous experience. I'm benefitting from both methods of acquiring info. I, also am unaware of an "All Router Format" magazine, but would agree with Charles that numerous tools are required when working with wood. This forum is also free and fun.

I subscribe to a lots of magazines. I enjoy reading them and have ,earned bout a lot of things along the way. But a mag devoted to router work? Sounds like a great idea. But also know there are a lot of stories that show you the way to use "all" the tools in your shop to accomplish a task.
