I work in a library, so between my personal subscriptions and the magazines I get to see at work, I read nearly every woodworking magazine in existence each month. I feel that this is one of the best - a no nonsense, straight-to-the-projects sort of publication. I appreciate and enjoy both the well written text and the clear and colorful photos, but I think I most appreciate the great selection of projects. All in all, there is something here for most every woodworker. If you are tiring of the lower-end magazines, definitely think about this one. Its a keeper!
A little skimpy on the material side.
Woodcraft is a magazine published by the Woodcraft woodworking stores and it shows. There is a lot more reviews of products than with other magazines. Projects are good but not many beginner ones. Geared more toward folks that have some good woodworking background. Projects are there and well written but not many per issue (3-4). Lots of write-up about layout and less on how to do that step (Assumes you know how to do mortises and tongue and groove for instance). Why 3 stars? Not very thick per a bi-annual issue (few ads!) so rather pricy. I have not done any projects like I have with Woodworker Journal (my #1 choice). One of a few magazines I let the subscription run out.
