    Good thread, Larry. I've been contemplating getting a subscription to something. Thought I would get Shop Notes, but LOML got me 3 issues to ocupy my mind the day of her surgery, and while I like the magazine it doesn't seem like a great fit for what I'm looking for right now. I need to look at a couple issues of the sister publication, Woodsmith to see if it is more what I'm looking for. Also need to look through some of the others just to make sure. I'm not ready for Fine Woodworking. Furniture building isn't my main interest right now. I'll watch this closely!!! Jim.

    I've subscribed to several over the last few of years, but right now I'm just getting Woodsmith and Shop Notes.

    I kept a subscription to Woodsmith and Shop Notes for several years and really enjoyed them. About three or four years ago I bought a lathe and quickly became addicted to turning. Now my only subscription is American Woodturner.

    Wood has projects and topics that fit my skill level or interest at this time. Haven't gotten much shop time, interesting how my new shop has provided me with a new season for woodworking, before it was to cold out in the winter, now with the new shop, winter seems to be the season I get time to work in there.

    How come no Fine Woodworking Larry

    That is the only one I get now, I enjoy it, not so many adverts, and with the online subscription too, I have access to their whole list of past issues, or most of it I guess.

    I'm still at the stage where wordsmith and shopnotes are relevant... so if I think of picking up any magazine, I look for one of those...

    What, you expect me to actually READ the poll.....

    For me, it is my "ONLY" choice right now.
