Today, I received my Woodsmith issue No. 235. Along with it came a very nice Router Workshop book. Every time I think of cancelling the Woodsmith subscription, something like this comes along and makes me want to continue. There is a very nice plan for a router and bit wall storage cabinet. That cabinet would be just right for my Bosch 1617 with all the attachments I have for it.
I don't have a link but I suppose you can look it up on the Woodsmith website.

I haven't got mine yet. :frown: I just ordered it about a week ago. :smile: I always wondered why it took so long to get your first subscription of any magazine. Maybe they are like me and don't much about computers. :wink:

I have some mixed feelings about Woodsmith mag. Much of it is just a repeat, and some of the articles and projects are pretty lightweight. But the ShopNotes center section often has some good stuff in it.
Tom, you are correct about the repeat - I have a copy of the Router Workshop book that Woodsmith is giving out. I'm not sure how long I've had the book but it's been at least a number of years, so this book isn't new by any stretch. There's no date anywhere on/in the book, but inside the front cover, the copyright date is 2007.

I still have a large number of magazines from when I subscribed to most of the publications, but I let my subscriptions run out and didn't renew any of them. There is so much information on the web these days, it makes no sense to subscribe. The only good thing about the actual mags is that you can read them while sitting on the throne.

I just got my issue and no router book. I have been a subscriber for quite some time and have become disappointed with it since they rolled in the stuff from Shop Notes. The projects have become somewhat lightweight and disappointing. I am seriously considering not renewing my subscription. When ever I have considered doing this in the past with other magazines along comes an issue that is great and I continue my subscription.

Seems true

for about every kind of magazine.
Get it one year and the next year will look similar.

Internet source of real-time info is so huge!

I think magazines got to have a serious content, something that one
cannot find the next corner, or they'l disappear.

Been a magazine subscriber, but after a while (2 years), checked how empty
or shall I say superficial, the informative content was, did stopped.

Getting more of info's I want from forums, personal websites, and so.
In fact that's more free info from happy contributors of any sort.

Regard.
Gérard.

Maybe Marty meant "article" (page 24, issue 235) instead of "book". I, too, am just ready to build one. Had been discussing just such a project with my youngest son.

If you got one project that you liked from a magazine per year you might say it was worth the money, or not.

On page 24 of issue 235 is a cordless drill charging station, nothing to do with router or router bit storage.

Page 92 of the Router Workshop "book" contains plans for a wall-mounted router and bit storage unit - features a shelf for a router, with 3 drawers on top of it and a carousel on top for more bit storage.
