Woodcraft Magazine Tips and Tricks Submission

You could win a Woodcraft Gift Card or cash prize for submitting your favorite shop tip or trick! Check out our submission guidelines below to learn more!

1. Pictures, Please!

Include photos and/or sketches if necessary. They are almost always helpful and sometimes critical, especially if a specific jig, construction, or set-up of some sort is involved. The pictures don't have to be perfect—they just have to make sense. Our artist will use them as reference when rendering an appropriate drawing for the column.

2. Publishing Rights

If your tip is selected for publication, Woodcraft retains exclusive rights to it. That is, it should not show up in a competing publication. Woodcraft also reserves the right to reuse the material in 'Best of…' compilations or other related forms. You'll find that this is standard policy with any magazine regarding Tips submissions. 

3. Publication & Payment Schedules

If a tip is accepted for publication, we'll let you know what issue it's slated for. Be aware, though, that occasionally a tip is held back for a subsequent issue due to space constraints or other last-minute adjustments on our end. Regardless of when the tip is actually published, you will be paid upon its acceptance.

4. Contact Information

Important: Please include your mailing address and daytime phone number. We'll need to know where to mail your payment, and an editor may need to contact you by phone with any questions regarding your submission.
