Woodcraft Magazine Unveils New WebsiteComments (0)
Visitors to the all-new Woodcraft Magazine website will find a “hot-off the press” format with much more content that is now searchable, including downloadable features. In addition, woodworkers and viewers alike will be invited to post responses to articles, blogs and videos. As always, we love to get those special tips and techniques to share with everyone through our “Share a Slick Tip, Win Cash or a Prize Program.”
“We are very excited about the new website,” editor in chief Tim Snyder said. “We think that this digital destination will be an excellent complement to the content we are putting in the magazine.”
Snyder, who took over as editor on July 1, and advertising sales manager Vic Lombard worked together on the major overhaul of woodcraftmagazine.com. “Vic has experience in designing websites and running social media campaigns for different businesses, so he was the ideal person to spearhead this initiative,” Snyder said.
The goal in offering this new, more interactive website is to support woodworkers. “We want to build the woodworking community, Snyder explained. “First of all we want to attract woodworkers of all ages, abilities and interests. Whether you are a carver, a turner or a furnituremaker, whether you are a retired hobbyist or a woodworking student anticipating a professional career, we want to provide useful content for you,” Snyder said. “We also want the new website to have strong community-building value, enabling woodworkers to post comments and questions.”
A lot of the new content is available to both magazine subscribers and non-subscribers, Snyder said. “We have taken some of the most popular and most useful articles from past issues and made those free on the website – free to everyone. Additional content is available to subscribers. For example, if you subscribe you can view the current issue, as well as back issues, in PDF format. To gain access to the additional content, subscribers need to log in and register, using the subscriber ID number from their magazine.”
•Hundreds of project plans, both paper and downloadable, are available at a reasonable cost and can be easily accessed from the website.
•Viewers will get a glimpse “behind the scenes” at the new Woodcraft Magazine blogsite – an inside look at what goes into different articles, including previews of upcoming stories.
The new website also boasts each upcoming latest magazine issue complete with a table of contents with an added PDF for viewing and download.
The 10-year old magazine publishes six issues a year, has a Home Series of several DIY publications and a DVD of the first 5 years of the magazine. Woodcraft is the magazine’s parent company. Learn more about Woodcraft Magazine at
