I forgot to mention one of my favorites: Woodworker's Journal Ezine. It's free to subscribe to and includes a lot of interesting info.

WoodWorkers Book Club has ceased doing business for about a year now............................
How about trying Canadian Home Workshop or Canadian Workshop. Both offer easy and useful projects, especially for the beginner.

Hi Whatfelloff,
I ONLY subscribe to 2 woodworking magazines. The first one is SHOPNOTES and WOODSMITH. These are both from August Publishing. The reason I like them is because there are NO ADVERTISEMENTS. (YES, none...guess who pays for the issues). One Year (6 issues) is $ 24.95....You can get a "FREE" issue to evaluate the magazine. For all you Kreg Jig Guys/Gals take a look at Issue # 108. Kreg jig is on the cover. (Did I say there were no ads....)
A new woodworker would get the most from Wood Magazine, American Woodworker, and Shop Notes.
Have fun.
Please give more info re. Kreg Jig on the cover of Shop Notes or Woodsmith- I have a collection of all issues and could not find it. Thanks

thanks for the reply--it was issue 106 of Shop Notes-July/August 2009

For some basic toys that wouldn't require a lot of wood or materials, I found "Zany Wooden Toys That Whiz, Spin, Pop and Fly" by Bob Gilsdorf is good for learning simple techniques.  None of them really require a lot of tools (but good tools make them MUCH easier).  Great for gifts for kids and ways to use up your scraps.

Pantry slides for heavy application

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…Continue

Miter Saw Recommendation

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
