Yes, yes. It might seem self-serving for me to recommend a subscription to Popular Woodworking Magazine as a holiday gift, but I firmly believe that what we publish is worth reading. If I didn’t, I wouldn’t work here.
Here’s our mission statement:
We inspire furniture makers of all skill levels with a broad range of historical and contemporary tools, techniques, topics and projects that touch on all facets of the craft, from a variety of enthusiastic voices. You’ll never know what to expect – other than great woodworking – as you open the pages to discover a vast array of interesting and exciting approaches that inspire you to keep learning and trying new things.
I think we achieve that. I also think we sometimes make you laugh (Roy Underhill and Christopher Schwarz articles come to mind)…but that’s weird to put in a mission statement for a woodworking magazine.
You can get a combo digital and print subscription here (or print or digital only), and a gift subscription here. Seven issues for less than the price of a couple bottles of wood glue (and less than one if you buy the large bottle of liquid hide glue).
P.S. We also have a video subscription site, where you get streaming access to every video we publish.
Here are some supplies and tools we find essential in our everyday work around the shop. We may receive a commission from sales referred by our links; however, we have carefully selected these products for their usefulness and quality.
