    I have a train commute to/from work, thought it’d be nice to read something woodworking related in some of the trips.

    Any recommendations on magazines?

    I read a few issues of Fine Woodworking, but found it a bit powertool heavy (i.e. most of the projects seemed to assume access to a table saw, band saw, etc.).

    I think your going to find that all the current magazines are geared to machine woodworking. I have allowed most of my subscriptions to expire for that reason. You may consider some books that are hand tool focused.

    I can’t provide a recommendation as I’ve never read it, but there is a new magazine called https://www.mortiseandtenonmag.com/ which might be of interest

    If you peruse them, let us know what you think

    I Like [email protected] but its more of a book, and only a few times a year. I subscribe to Popular Woodworking and like it. Some times there are power tool stuff but there are many hand tools articles to balance it out. Bob Flexner has a nice column about finishing. Sometimes I look at Fine Woodworking but it seems more power tool focused.

    $24 and worth it.

    Try Gunterburg project on like or google books. There are quite a lot of vintage books on wood working and crafting and the history there. With what I have learned form WWMC I have been able to follow learn alot about the craft. It is also interesting to see how it has evolved.
