    I’m surprised you had 10 original articles to choose from. Mostly what gets posted here are reprints of columns from many years ago.

      We posted 392 articles about woodworking the past year, from dozens of talented woodworkers, all free of charge. Does it really matter when they were first published?

        It does if we have already read them years ago. The content is still relevant and I guess for new subscribers meaningful. For many of us that have subscribed for more than a decade its not very helpful.
        Would love to see a few new project articles even if they have to be posted over many weeks.
