|Magazines and other sources:
Fine Woodworking and American Woodworker are by far the best
general woodworking magazines published. I have subscribed to both over the years and currently still get Fine Woodworking.
Woodsmith is an excellent project oriented magazine.
These all have excellent how to and technical articles. They go into more depth than the other magazines and have far superior technical accuracy. The only downside,
is that the scale of many of the projects shown may be daunting. Don't fear, there are also small ones.
Wooden Boat - you probably already about knew that one.
Home Shop Machinist - This is the place to learn about metal working and where to find all of the tools and toys for metal work. Remember, boat building is multi-disciplinary. The best buys on measuring and layout tools are found in the metal / industrial suppliers.
New Yankee Workshop - Yes, I know this is not reading. It really helps to see someone else doing these things. Of course, the 10:1 speed-up of having everything set up and ready to go
needs to be factored in when planning a similar project.
- On-line magazine. Lots of other projects and good articles. Get
