The June 2017 issue of Popular Woodworking Magazine, which features Caleb James’ homage to Hans Wegner on the cover, is in the mail right now to print subscribers (the notice for digital subscribers should go out later today – Thursday, April 13, or tomorrow). It’s also now available at ShopWoodworking.com. The Online Extras are live at popularwoodworking.com/jun17.
The issue will be on newsstands in a couple weeks as well, and once it’s there, if you mosey by a newsstand you might notice it looks just a tiny bit different. In it, there is a bonus insert, “Handsaw Basics,” that is comprised of legacy material – that is, articles that have appeared in past issue of the magazine on the subject of sawing things by hand. So there’s a “skyline” that reads: “Bonus Guide: Handsaw Basics” in place of the Flexner skyline at the top of the subscriber issue.
If you’ve been a subscriber for a while, you’ve likely already read all the articles in those additional pages – but in case you haven’t, we’re offering a PDF of “Handsaw Basics” free here – just click on the title below to download it. I’m also adding it to the issue’s Online Extras page.
