American Woodworker at this point. Have had most of them.. I also like Wood a lot and Woodsmith & Shop notes. but AW is currently my favorite. AW and Wood are the only 2 I am currently subscribing to.

Shop Notes without a doubt, but I also purchase Wood, American Woodworker, Handyman, Popular woodworking, Fine Woodworking, Woodworker's Journal....and a couple of others......

I'm getting older so need to read lots, do lots, to beat the learning curve....compress the time frames. And yes, I do read every one of them monthly and from cover to cover, or bi-monthly if that's when they come out.

Best is Shop Notes, then Router Power Woodworking. Then it's a toss up,
Woodworkers Journal,
American Woodworker,
Wood,
Wood Smith,
American Iron, oops, motorcycle magazine.

While all woodworking magazines offer interesting articles I think the most useful are Wood, Popular Woodworking and ShopNotes. The styles of these magazines are very different and each is unique in it's presentation. You will find threads with excepts from these magazines more than any others on our forums. I would ask you to support one or more of them for this very reason. No way I could choose just one.

Hi hitnailonhead

I like Fine Woodworking & Woodsmith ,,, I had many of them at one time I had about 150 of the Woodsmith's and then I sold them off on eBay at a great price I should add way over list price...I go from wood working to computers and other hobbies ..... and then back to wood working again... now I'm back into wood working ... LOL

Right now I only subscribe to Wood. My daughter gave me a copy each of Woodsmith and Popular Woodworking. They're pretty good as they aren't full of advertising.
I had a subscription to Handyman but gave it up when they started adding sexual enhancement ads, in addition to the other thousand ads they run. They're website isn't too cool either. Changed the forums format and screwed it all up.

Good thread! I was wondering the same thing...I want to get a subscription to a woodworking mag, and the only two I've had a chance to read are Canadian Woodworking and Canadian Home Workshop.
Shop Notes and Wood seem to be getting the most praise so far....good to know, I'll look them up!
