    Here in the States, I subscribe to several publications on woodworking.  A couple of my favorites are Popular Woodworking and Fine Woodworking.  Of the two, Popular Woodworking seems to cater more towards Paul’s style of woodworking and teaching, which I have really enjoyed.

    Since I have the ability to go digital now with my new iPad I got for Christmas, what are some of the better British Publications that would be worth checking out?  Not to exclude the rest of the world, does anyone else have a publication that would be good to check out?  Considering I only speek English, hopefully the non-english publications have lots of pictures.

    As a Brit, and a relative newcomer to new genre woodworking, I look forward to the responses of some others from this side of the Atlantic. I’ve bought a couple of magazines and been disappointed – too many adverts (for power tools, of course) and most of the articles slanted at power tool woodworking. Leaving a paltry amount of coverage for our style of working. Any other Brits had  a better experience?

    Stephen great question, I to live in the States and Poplar Woodworking is by far my favorite. Chris Schwarz did a great job introducing Hand Tools and now with Meagan at the helm I think you will see this continue. Fine Woodworking is my second favorite but is hit or miss with me.

    I seem to remember a few years ago there was a Publication from Great Britain but have not seen it in a very long time.  Now with Paul here I am excited as he is more for Hand Tools than Power Tools and I like his no nonsence approach as Paul refers to it as “Real Woodworking”, and I agree.

    Paul’s Blog and Woodnet .net are my favorite places to hang out. I have learned so much.

    I have been interested in woodwork for some time and my interest was quickened when I suddenly had a boat to rebuild.  I have subscribed to most of the British magazines, Good Woodworking, The Woodworker, and British Woodworking to name a few.  Of them all, I think that British Woodworking is the best, but that is a personal choice and might not reflect the opinion of the majority.  I have found it to be light on machinery and filled with good articles.  The other two I think are more power-tool based, but also have good articles on hand tools. Good Woodworking has taken a more designer slant of late.  I like Fine Woodworking very much, but now have allowed the subscriptions of all bar BW to lapse.  As I said, I like the articles.  I used to subscribe to Fine Woodworking on line as well, but now prefer to do rather than read about doing, so I prefer this site and Paul’s blog.

    Try searching for “American Woodworker” on books.google.com. There’s lots of good stuff from the 80’s and 90’s in there.
