There aren't that many at all, really.  The AWA magazine;
Woodturning, from the UK;  Woodturning Design, from the US which some
scorn, but I rather enjoy...others?

Only ONE good magazine...."Woodturning" from the UK.  The rest are of
rapidly diminishing degrees of quality...... IMO

Not for a beginner.  Probably best to get a basic book on turning and work
from there.  Magazines attempt cover trends,  not the basics, and can get a
bit over the edge occasionally.

If you can get it _The Practical Woodturner_ by Frank Pain is a great start.
Not about this tool or that, or current styles, but about the basics of how
to make an edge remove wood cleanly from a rotating object.

Thanks to everyone for the info on magazine. I will see if I can find a copy
at the local bookstore or newsstands.  I also plan on getting the "Turning
Green Wood" book and video because I saw a posting that say they were good.

Again thanks,

John

John Depending on where you live if there is a Barnes and Noble bookstore
They carry both Woodturning and Woodturning Design magazines.

Hi John, I dont know your circumstances, but if your town has a library,
consider looking there. Probably few or no woodturning books, but most
librarians can show you lists of books (often tapes and periodicals as
well) that they can obtain to loan you.  What makes for a "good turning
magazine" is for you to decide.

There are many good teaching websites offered by members of rcw. Look
thru the archives for their urls. Be sure to visit a local turning club
and consider joining AAW and be active here. A beginner's input is
always a welcome and worthwhile addition.

I think the others have listed most of the magazines available, except one: More
Woodturning. A lot of the readers of More Woodturning claim it is their first
choice among the magazines they read. I get virtually all of the woodturning
magazine myself, and I think More Woodturning is worth taking a look at:
<http://www.fholder.com/Woodturning/sample.pdf>.

People will say that I'm biased since I publish it. More Woodturning has been
published since October 1996. First as a tabloid newspaper, but since June 2005
it has been a magazine with some color pages. For people who want to read it on
their computer, More Woodturning is also available as a PDF electronic magazine.
I do not normally promote my publication on the newsgroup, but since no one else
commented about More Woodturning, I felt it was time to mention it.

More Woodturning is not available on news stands, but is available from Craft
Supplies USA, Woodchucker's in Canada and Black Forest Wood Company in Canada.

John...
Most of my turning "webucation" came from this newsgroup...

Hang out for a bit and look for folks web pages in their signatures... some,
like Derrell, Bill G., George and many others are wealths of knowledge and have
a lot of step-by-step stuff in them...

If you're in a hurry, email me and I'll give you 8 or 10 URLs to start with..

I also like Woodturning Design and I think it is very good for beginner to
intermediate turners. I also get via my membership American Woodturner but
it is often too artsy for my taste.

Great idea! I had never thought of the library.

I'm still reading through some websites for some of the guy in the NG, but
wanted a good magazine to add to my resources.

Thanks,
John
