Our warehouse in Wisconsin reported today that our shipment of Woodworking Magazine hardbound editions have arrived and will ship out immediately. So for all of you who have ordered the book already, you should be receiving it shortly in the mail.

And if you are still considering ordering the book, you should know that we sold out more than half of the press run already and don’t have plans for a second printing. There’s no pressure, of course. We’ll sell them all, regardless. Also good to know: Our special offer of free shipping on this book ends on Sept. 21. Until that date, you can order it for $30 from our back issues store. After that, it’s $34.95.

In case you missed our announcement about the book, check out the earlier blog entry I posted. I think you’ll find that the printing quality of this book is first-rate. The typography and photo reproduction looks even crisper than the original issues; plus the paper is brighter and the binding is quite secure.

Work has begun on issue nine of Woodworking Magazine. The theme of the issue? Sawing of all sorts (no surprises here). But what might be surprising are the conclusions we’re reaching and some of the tricks we’ve dug up. Not all sawing has to be done with saws…¦.

    Chris and Co.,

    I just received my copy of the book on Monday, and I couldn’t be more pleased. The few copies I bought off the news stands were great, but reading them in book form, I realize just how fantastic a resource the magazine has been from the beginning. The tool reviews have been great, and it was awesome to see Phil Koontz’s work get the attention it deserves.

    WM stands out as a unique body of work among the trade. Instead of lulling readers into complacency, it empowers readers to grow in the craft, to expand their skills and knowledge, to invest in the tools that will make a difference in gaining new skills and achieving better results.

    The influence of WM (and PW) is striking, too, and not just among those of us who practice "blended woodworking." I can see the influence you’ve had in the magazine industry, too. I see more articles in more magazines about the benefits of using hand tools than I’d ever imagined possible. I can say confidently, though: nobody does it better.
