Learning to cut woodworking joints is one thing. Figuring out how to assemble all those joints in a correct and efficient order for a project is another skill entirely.

In the upcoming Fall 2008 issue of Woodworking Magazine, we’re delving deep into the topic of cabinet construction. And the method we have developed during the last decade is different than any other you have read, but it will do three things for your woodworking:

1. You’ll make fewer mistakes and waste less wood.

2. You’ll have an easier time fitting your doors and drawers.

3. Your cabinets will go together faster with tighter joints.

If you’d like to learn about our new method, then I encourage you to subscribe to the magazine by May 30 to guarantee you will receive a copy of the Fall 2008 issue. In addition to our research into cabinet construction, you’ll also find:

Fitting Doors & Drawers: We show you how to square up doors with a table saw and fit it precisely with a hand plane. Plus, we explain how to size your drawers so they’ll fit properly with only minor adjustments with a plane.

Tool Review , Sliding Bevels: Why do so many of them slip and slide around on you? We investigate the major brands available today and find the best ones.

Coloring Walnut: Walnut with a simple clear finish looks cold and lifeless.
We show you how to warm up this beautiful wood with a variety of approaches, including shellac and stains.

So why should you subscribe to Woodworking Magazine? We think it’s different than every other magazine out there. It’s written to help all woodworkers fill in the inevitable gaps in our skills that result from teaching ourselves woodworking.

We show you the historical, time-tested and frequently forgotten methods to saw any joint, drawboring, wedged through-tenons and splines. We review tools that other magazines won’t touch but are extremely important: like 6″ rules, screws, combination squares and moisture meters.

Plus, we offer projects you won’t elsewhere. We build only time-tested forms in classic styles, such as Arts & Crafts, Shaker and early American. More importantly, we pick projects that can be built without an enormous outlay of time, wood or tools.

And that’s not all that’s different. Woodworking Magazine has no advertisements and is printed in glorious sepia-toned black-and-white on its inside pages.

If you’re ready to subscribe, we’re ready to take your order. Click here and we’ll sign you up to receive the next issue.

    Woodworking magazine is so informative I have allowed almost all my other wood magazine subscriptions to lapse. Any one issue provides so much information it more than justifies the subscription cost!

    Now! If you guys would make it a bi-monthly magazine with a three year or maybe a lifetime subscription package???
