Screen Shot 2015-03-19 at 11.14.15 AMWhen we compiled the 1985-2014 American Woodworker dvd, we didn’t realize that one issue – December 1985 – was missing from the inherited electronic files.

This was brought to our attention by an eagle-eyed reader (thank you eagle-eyed reader), so we tracked down a copy and are offering that entire issue, free. (And we will, of course, add it to the dvd the next time we press more copies.)

Inside, this issue you’ll find instruction from such woodworking luminaries as Christian Becksvoort, Franklin Gottshall and Carlyle Lynch, and topics ranging from turning to steam-bending to dovetails, and how to sell your work (in 1985).

This file is too large to serve off our site, so it’s been uploaded to Google Drive. Click here to read.

    If we buy the dvd now will there be a reasonable fee to upgrade to the complete one?

    Is there a “Woodwork” magazine compilation? The (lousy) search function yields 1700+ results.
