I get this magazine and it is pretty good.
Pro's- Very well thought out, informative, and filmed (not professional TV
or movie quality but very good for what it is). Some big and little
projects, turning, carving, tool review (although they are from the paid
Con's- Fairly expensive and not discounted much (if at all) from the
"Newstand Price" although about the same as Fine Wood Working, Audio
sometimes has excessive reverb, some segments are long and I have fallen
asleep watching, if you don't have a DVD drive in your computer, you are out
of SOL printing the plans (I fortunately have one at work), and it only
comes out every other month. Too long to wait for the next one.
Overall, I will keep subscribing to it and look forward to many more issues
(just don't like waiting 2 months)
i subscribe, and i like it. altho, the "bonus" issue about shop tours
and setting up shop was a coaster pretty fast. . .
Chris, the fellow who publishes and "stars" in the video has loosened
up quite a bit over the last year, but that comes from getting
comfortable in front of a camera.
the projects range from beginner to, well, i'd say what fellas,
i did notice another fellow comment about the "discount" over the
"newsstand" price was not much,,,i don't know what Chris is charging
for the next year, 48.65 is the "newsstand" price, and 30.31 is the
subscription price. . .that's an issue and a half at the full cover
i for one love it, and find something new in each issue...
Go to there site and have them mail you out a sample copy. That's what I did
after posting the previously mentioned thread about the magazine. All in all
I think it is pretty informative. Only your not going to be able to take it
to the crapper with you unless you got a laptop!!
I posted a follow-up review after receiving my sample issue and was pleased
with the mag and plan to subscribe to it when I get a chance to send in the
Happy New Year,
