Hi all,
Does anyone on this NG subscribe to the british publication Woodturning? If
so, what do you think of it? Is it worth the cost? Does it arrive promptly?
Etc?
TIA
Joe

I don't subscribe but I do buy it every month on the newsstand.  It is head
and shoulders above anything I have seen so far IMHO.

It was given to me as a gift subscription!  I would never subscribe at the
price!  It is an ok mag, being as it is just about the only one out there.
A brand new one is on the way, heard about it at the SWAT symposium, but do
not remember what the name is or when the *** issue is coming!  Fred
Holder is a lot more in line with his newspaper "more woodturning".

Just my opinion.  It has a lot of pretty pics and advertising from England!
The "redcoats" are trying to get even from the war of 1776!

Regards,
Lewis

I subscribe to "More Woodturning".  It is a great magazine, more than
worth the cost, always timely in the mailbox.  It is what "American
Woodturner" hopes to be one of these days.  I alwasy look forward to
its arrival.

Joe - Have received Woodturning from England for the last two years
and it is a terrific magazine.  Half the articles are about or written
by us Yanks or the Aussies.  Great articles and photography.  Well
worth the cost.

Woodturning is a great publication and while expensive it has some
wonderful features. They have developed the technique of using up to
20/30 photos in an article to fully expose the method of some
particular turning. When you see these sequential photos there is no
doubt as to how something was done.

I find some of the articles too short and wish there was more depth.
Every article is not always to my interest but enough so that I look
forward to each issue, which does arrive in a timely manner, though I
have not kept track to see if it arrives on the same day each month.

Without doubt it is better than anything on this side of the pond.

I don't subscribe, but usually buy it at the newsstand.  Most of the better
bookstores like Barnes & Noble carry it.  So do some of the Woodcraft
stores.

Is it worth the cost?  Probably not, but is anything worth the cost anymore?
It's a pretty good magazine, not exceptional IMHO, but one of the very few
choices in woodturning magazines.  Personally, I would love to see a "Fine
Woodturning" magazine by Taunton Press.  I wrote to them once suggesting it,
but no one bothered to answer my letter.
