A Cause for Celebration

Woodcraft Magazine is proud to present its 100th issue! Much has changed since we embarked on this adventure 16 years ago, but our dedication to producing accessible woodworking content has endured. The team here delights in delivering knockout projects, valuable woodworking advice, honest tool reviews, and shop-proven tips. In general, we just flat out love woodworking and want you to, too.

To that end, we went all out for this issue. To start, Woodcraft Supply and a few top-notch toolmakers have joined us in creating the 100th Issue Giveaway Sweepstakes, offering you a chance to win a shop full of tools! You’ll find all the details on page 25. Then, if you’re reading this, you already know about the 6 Best Boxes magazine bundled with the issue. Plucked from our previous 99 issues, these skill-building boxes are among our most popular projects. We’ve updated them and are presenting them here together for your building pleasure.

The revelry continues in the form of the Woodcraft Magazine USB thumb drive. We’ve collected all 100 issues—that’s 16 years of stellar woodworking content at your fingertips—hundreds of projects, techniques, and products in one convenient, searchable package, available this Spring.

Bonus boxes, gadgets, and contests aside, this issue contains excellent content of its own. Reflecting on the changes seen in the shop over the last decade or three, we’ve presented awards (p.26) to some of the most ground-breaking woodworking tools in recent history. Veterans of the craft share their second-nature shop practices to benefit the up-and-comers among you (p.41). And, for projects, on page 32, you’ll find a straightforward method for building a splendid accent cabinet. Rounding out the offerings is a set of side tables to make with your CNC machine (p.22), and a pair of shop cabinets designed to hold finishing supplies (p.46).

But we all know the true cause for this celebration is you. Readers of Woodcraft Magazine have kept us kicking over the years. Producing this periodical is our passion, and you grant us that privilege. So thank you. Enjoy your 100th issue. And here’s to 100 more!

Caveat lector: To our jocund readers, keep an eye out for some April Fool’s rib-tickling, and rest assured no animals were harmed (or shaved) in the making of this issue.
