Most of the woodworking magazines have closed, i think there is only The Woodworker left but no idea if it's any good any more. I'd look to see if you can find some back issues, you might get a few years worth for the price of a couple of new mags.

I've just stopped my subscription to Furniture and Cabinet Making as there was little in it of interest to me as I have no intention of spending thousands of pounds and hundreds of hours making a work bench that I'd be afraid to use! I do have a stack of back issues, and if you are local to me you'd be welcome to some of them unless you want to pay p&p. You will need to make a few more posts before you can send me a pm, although you can probably get in touch via my contact details on my website.

Thanks all.
Am looking at the back issues suggestion, as don't want a subscription to something way above my ability or inclination.
Like to build stuff I can use.
Cheers Paul
