In addition to providing people with compelling stories and photography, magazines supply the raw materials to piece together ransom notes demanding more magazine subscriptions. Demand to be informed with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get a two-year subscription to Woodcraft Magazine from Woodcraft in Jacksonville (a $19.97 value).
A two-year subscription to Woodcraft Magazine arms lathe laureates and router rookies alike with 12 issues of tips, tool reviews, and step-by-step instructions for a range of projects. With articles contributed by seasoned level-five woodworking gurus, recent issues have dispensed sage advice on such topics as glue management, staying safe at the table saw, and breaking boards with the power of suggestion. Step-by-step photography accompanies each set of design instructions, clearly detailing the progress of projects such as a fully finished set of stackable wine racks or a modular home office with a red-oak-and-plywood design. Tool experts introduce readers to the latest in woodworking technology with product reviews, and shop-design specialists keep timber tinkerers efficient with articles on specialized storage, shop setup, and making a robot assistant out of a mini fridge.
