500 woodworking magazines :)

So for my birthday this year my parents got me about 520 woodworking magazines for only a little over a hundred dollars! I had seen the ad on a website! here's a couple pics. :)

Great gift, but here's my suggestion. As you go through these magazines, you are going to see projects that you want to work on. Do what I do. I catalogue every project, complete with the page number, magazine name and issue number or month. This way, when I feel like making a project, I just check out my "list" and I can pick and choose without having to wonder which magazine I saw it in. If you start this method right from the get go, it's easy. Just a suggestion.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

I would never get anything done. I love wood working magazines, and if I had over 500 of them I would spend all my time reading them instead of actually doing one of the projects. Oh, but the ideas I would have lol.

I have piles of wood magazines. When I read a project I like I tab the page with tape. Makes it a little easier pawing through them looking for a project I remember. Logging them and keeping in order would make more sence but thats more organized then I am capable of.


Don't put your solor kiln under a tree.

There are lots of ways to save magazines. The only problem is to be able to find that certain article a few years later. Once upon a time I too had hundreds of magazines, but going back to find something was a real pain.

The solution that worked best for me was to cut out an article whenever I saw something I liked, and put the article into my own 'woodworking notebook'. Just purchase an empty notebook, a three ring hole punch, and some dividers. Now when I have some free time it is fun to flip back thru the notebook, and it is amazing how many times you see an article that caught your eye years ago.

If I had kept all the magazines and catalogs that passed thru the shop over the years, they would number in the thousand, I imagine. Instead, the notebook is 3" thick and has enough projects to keep me busy forever.

Just one more solution that worked for me…

I was at an auction sale last sunday and bid on and got all the issues of wood from oct 94 through april of 2005 all for the big price of 10.00. Nobody else even bid.
I came home and organized them year on the living room floor and then the wife came home with that "what did you buy now" look in her eyes. Then i told her what i paid for them and she started looking through a few of the issues.

Looks like buying the magazines will be the cheap after seeing the list she was making.

This give me an almost complete collection of "wood"
but im missing a few of the first issues.

Still alot of reading to do
