sourdough Most of those above ...but I found, after a couple years, that Fine Woodworking was (a) too expensive and (b) far too advanced and sophisticated to be of practical use to me. Yes, its fun to see what the big boys can do, but its not much value to me.
Never in a hundred years would I finish a 24-drawer solid maple chest with ivory marquetry, ebony turned feet, hand forged iron fittings and triple-laminated bubinga from a dwarf Amazonian shrub.

garycurtis If you want to learn about routers, instead of magazines get this book Woodworking with the Router by Bill Hylton. The new edition (2007?). Although Bill and other authors of good router books contribute material to magazines, stories in a periodical are usually limited to 6 pages.

Unfortunately, many woodworking topics demand more explanation than 6 pages allow. Hylton of course has great woodworking experience, but beyond that he knows how to explain and to instruct. The photography in the new edition is really superb.

Good luck,

AxlMyk Wood mag has so many ads in it, I'm dropping it.

I like Popular WWing, Shopnotes, and Wood Smith.

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.

dutchman 46 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.
