I pre-ordered a copy from Lee Valley. As I understand, this will be a single issue annual publication. I think it is a great idea, especially if it is all "meat." Less stuff to archive for future reference that will be very useful and inspiring.

Not cheap at $25 an issue. But might be worth the investment.

I couldn't quite get a good "read" on what it is about- I'm more about technique type information rather than "the tree talked to me and after a three day walk in the desert I had a vision of how the bookcase should be created," type story.

Rutager,

Here's a bunch more info on the magazine.

The Workbench Diary

It looks pretty interesting. He normally does conservation work and looks like he's got great info.

Mike

It would have been nice if it was hardbound, like the old "American Heritage" magazine of years ago.

That would probably add a zero to the price.

EDIT: Well after reading this further it's one issue, so yea hardbound would be nice. But then if it goes more frequent publication it might drive the price too high relative to other pubs.

Well...

...very nicely put together, but clearly written in the romanticized, historical style which isn't my "cup of tea." I like my tools much prettier and articles more technical. Now if that is what you like, it's a great publication.

Although they tossed a bunch of coarse wood shavings in the envelope that I had to pick up off of the floor.

Well, good to hear. I got my copy but can't hold it open. In fact, I'm down to one hand for the foreseeable future. Shoulder surgery took out my left wing. For some reason this one has been really painful to the point that I haven't been able to use our bed. Trying to sleep sitting up in a recliner hasn't been the greatest, but what can you do? Typing one handed is a hoot as well. A few more weeks and I'm hoping to be able to start using it again. In the meantime, I've been too embarrassed to ask Sherry to hold the magazine open for me. It's bad enough that she's had to dress and undress me, towel me off, etc. Funny how we take being whole for granted.
