American Woodworker magazine publishes articles for woodworking hobbyists looking for inspiration and advice for new or ongoing projects. American Woodworker became a part of Popular Woodworking Magazine in 2014 and currently issues under that name.
American Woodworker, currently known as Popular Woodworking Magazine, publishes tips, how-to guides and project ideas for woodwork hobby work, such as homemade furniture, decorative items and utensils, and house expansion. Popular Woodworking Magazine also features reviews of woodworking tools and advice on how to effectively and safely use them. The magazine bases its reviews on practical use tests in the shop by veteran woodworkers writing for the magazine.
Popular Woodworking Magazine offers projects and tips for new or casual hobbyists and long-time carpenters alike, and every degree of skill in between. The magazine is available in both print and digital subscriptions, and publishes seven issues per year. The archive has older issues available for subscribed members, including original issues of American Woodworker as far back as 1984.
The Popular Woodworking Magazine website provides free project guides for guests and visitors who want to see examples of the magazine's style and content before purchasing a subscription. The magazine sorts these free articles into furniture projects, basic woodworking and advanced techniques.
