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…¦.

    The book is fantastic. Very nice print quality. I have found that I really love the format – no adds!!! Very happy to have stumbled across this site! Signed copies? How did I miss that?

    Keep up the good work lads – you have a new convert.

    Chris,
    Thanks for the signed copies! Labels was a very good idea – I never thought of that.

    Andy,

    We’re working on the budget for 2008 right now and will be figuring out what the publishing schedule will be, including the possibility of subscriptions. We’re pushing to go quarterly next year.

    The reason we’re only doing one press run of the books is that we think there’s only a market for that many. If demand increases; we’ll print more.

    Hey Chris,
    what is your thought on the future of this magazine – will this be the status quo – no subscriptions – limited publication and every so many volumes – once sold out, a limited publishing in book form of those seven-eight volumes?

    I think the book idea is wonderful and am looking forward to receiving my copy.

    just curious
