Celebrating a Milestone

Although the Giveaway is the centerpiece of Woodcraft Magazine’s celebration of 100 issues published over the past 16 years, it is only part of the overall event. Six Best Boxes from the Past 100 Issues is bundled with the 100th Issue as a bonus. Also coming this spring, according to Chief Editor Chad McClung, is a Woodcraft Magazine USB thumb drive with all 100 issues in one convenient, searchable location.

Issue 100 itself is part of the event. Special content includes the staff’s selection of the top 10 game-changing tools in the last few decades, 53 simple shop tips that are second nature to the pros, a trio of occasional tables made with CNC joinery, and a contemporary cabinet featuring a simple approach to construction.

McClung has worked on 82 of the 100 issues. He began in 2007 as freelance graphic designer and then assistant art director, art director, managing editor and currently chief editor.

“A lot has changed,” McClung said, “but more important is what hasn’t: our delight in delivering exceptional woodworking content.”

The pursuit of excellent content is fueled by a desire to provide readers with helpful instruction. “Readers play a critical role in the magazine,” McClung said. “All of our content is created with our readers in mind. We deconstruct every article to figure out the best way to ensure successful shop-time. And we answer every reader’s letter and phone call. We do this because we love woodworking just as much as they do, and we love teaching the craft.”

An old Post Office Box door is the centerpiece of a P.O. Coin Bank project featured on the cover of Woodcraft Magazine Issue 1.

Congratulations to the Woodcraft Magazine staff on 100 issues of woodworking projects, techniques, shop tips, wood information, product features and a lot more!
