In my 13 years with this magazine, I’ve never written about the magazine itself. You’ve never had to hear about how we tweaked the fonts, leading and kerning to spiff up our look. All that rubbish is inside baseball in my book. This is a woodworking magazine, and you pay me to write about woodworking.
But this issue features changes that are so radical that I’d like to take a few minutes to explain them. If you’d like to turn the page and get to the woodworking stuff, I totally understand.
For those of you still with us, here’s the deal: Starting this issue we’ve combined Popular Woodworking and Woodworking Magazine into the publication you are holding. It might look like we’ve just closed one magazine, but that’s not right. Read on.
We’ve taken the best parts of each and combined them into Popular Woodworking Magazine, which will be published seven times a year. (The details of what this means for your subscription are addressed on the cover wrap around this issue.)
