Fine Woodworking 2011 Annual Collection
The Taunton Press, 2011.
$34.95; DVD-ROM

The Fine Woodworking 2011 Annual Collection includes all seven issues from 2011 in an easily searched DVD-ROM. You won’t have to hunt for your past issues to find that article you read earlier in the year. A quick search of the DVD and the article will be yours – you can print only what you need and take it to the shop so you don’t mess up your original magazine. Also included on the DVD is a bonus magazine index for all the issues: 1-223. You can search the index with the same criteria that you use to search the Annual DVD-ROM.  The results will display the issue number for the magazines that contain what you are looking for, plus the page number. That’s a big help when searching for those older articles.

Lucky StatehouseYCC is the winner. His comment was chosen at random.

woodhead3 woodhead3 writes: I like the fact that all of the issues are on DVD. The search/save functions could use some refinement. The pictures and drawings are all low resolution while the text is crisp and clear. What's up with that? I went to install the 2011 annual collection and the computer is spitting back an "application not found" error. Back to "contact us".

Bradleyman Bradleyman writes: This New Year is said to be the end of world (according to all the hype about the Mayan calender) This year I am instead going to focus on getting out to my shop more and organizing it and removing all the clutter that so discourages me to begin something. So it will be the end of something in my life (procrastination, and fear)....but.... it will also be the beginning of something(to live a fuller more productive life and having fun discovering new courage to "build") Winning the DVD series would certainly contribute to this new found enthusiasm but not winning it will not harm my resolution.
I enjoy your Magazine and have fun out their people! Let this year be the end of the world as you knew it and the re-birthing of something new and fresh in all your lives!

Using the articles in the magazine and online extras Ive not only learned a great deal but I have been able to turn out some nice furniture for my wife that I would never have been able to buy her. I am in the process of putting up a book shelf in the shop so I can keep m,y articles close by for easy reference.

I have made space in my garage for these concepts and need to build several cabinets & workstations to better accommodate the house furniture concepts.

The FW articles & past issues have been very inspirational this past few months...I could really enjoy and benefit from the extensive collection of FW to be more informed.

I like the many media forms that FW's very helpful as the demand changes.

I have also bought and subscribed to FW for many years.
This year I cancelled the UK ones as I found they had become repetitive and boring.
So I now just take FW and look forward to each copy and just wish it was a monthly magazine.

omphroyd omphroyd writes: I've been woodworking for about 9 years now - self taught, using pretty much print magazines and internet articles. When I first started, I subscribed to Fine Woodworking. I found it to be an extremely high quality magazine, but I cancelled my subscription becuase it was so far beyond my level of skill and understanding I was just plain intimidated. About 3 years ago, I re-subscribed. I'm so glad I did. I find this to be the finest woodworking magazine on the market, with the most interesting and challenging projects. Not only do I look forward to every print issue, but I also look forward to each eLetter. Thank you for keeping the quality of your products so high. Your magazine truely epitomizes the term "Fine Woodworking".

woodnironsmith woodnironsmith writes: I would definitely enjoy the digital copy of the magazine. As a subscriber of FW, I think the annual DVD should be offered to subscribers at a nominal fee just to cover the costs. It should not be revenue stream for something I already paid for. I believe FW should also consider offering the subscription as either a monthly pdf or hardcopy.

JW45 JW45 writes: While I love the ability to get on the computer and find what I'm looking for quickly, there is still something that just is more relaxing and enjoyable about a cup of coffee and the printed magazine and spending time just enjoying the education you pass on in each issue. I've been doing a lot of woodworking lately...retiring from my day job and supplementing retirement with something I enjoy. But I have learned that you can print out an article and sit down with the coffee and still not have to ruin your eyes on a computer screen....and can research every issue quickly. I found I could spend an entire afternoon looking for something because I kept getting distracted by other articles that had nothing to do with what I was looking for but sure seemed interesting at the time. I broke down and ordered the whole collection so will pass on to someone else the 2011 disk if by chance I draw the black bean, but wanted to say thank you for the hours of enjoyable time spent learning to be better at something I enjoy and which I may even try making a little money at now. I think everyone at one time or another dreams of making a living doing woodworking, but unfortunately we have become a country that thrives on cheap overseas goods rather than solid American made work that will stand up to the test of time. Maybe we'll wake up before it's too late and if we do it will be partly because your magazine encourages each of us to learn and return to a tradition of doing it right...not cheap. Thanks for a wonderful magazine and for all of those of you willing to share with the rest of us a craft that will continue to grow in a world where some skills are disappearing.....with a great deal of the credit going to those who encourage, advise and assist their fellow woodworkers....there may be a little fun such as the dovetail challenge, but it is just that...good natured fun while raising the bar for someone learning who will some day be able to pass on what he has learned. And we even get some incredible furniture, boxes, picture frames, carvings, and other items that show that talent in this country is still every where you look and the joy of helping others still exists at Christmas and for some the whole year round. Thank you all for adding your "two cents worth" for folks like me to pickup and work with to try to become a better woodworker and a better person as a result.

I have just started building Eugene Landon's "Queen Anne Handerchief Table" (Issue #52). I much admire and wish I could have met Eugene.

I think you can tell that I really love "Finewoodworking". My one gripe is that, despite the many and valiant efforts you have made to provide good indices, I frequently have a hell of a time finding a remembered article.

If I had the prize CD, it might help!

Thank all of you, past and present contributors, for your terrific magazine.

It looks to me that, if you have the DVD with all issues through 2010 and buy the annual DVD for 2011, you will have to go to each separate DVD to look anything up in "the" index -- two index searches every time you want to find something in the FWW archives. Then when next year's annual comes out you will have to go to three indexes to find articles on the three DVDs -- and so on and on. Soon you will have a stack of FWW DVDs as almost as high as your stack of print FWW. Looking for an article on the CDs will be almost as complicated as it is to flip through a stack of print copies.

FWW needs to publish a comprehensive DVD every year (as they do), but sell it at the annual CD price for those who have previously bought a comprehensive DVD and all subsequent annual DVDs to that comprehensive DVD.

I don't mind paying something for the convenience of a searchable DVD, but I too do not want to pay for the same information multiple times, Accordingly, the annual cumulative updates should be sold at a much cheaper price for those who are current subscribers to the print version of FWW.

Little_Joe Little_Joe writes: Yes!
But, for someone retired on a low fixed income, I'm doing good to buy the Printed version!

Paying for it again is out of my budget... I'll settle for another year of Printed version.

Thank you.
