Today's Woodworker CD
I had the good fortune to have a few old copies of Today's Woodworker I had subscribed to many years ago. It was an excellent magazine and I jumped at the chance to have all the issues that I had missed so long ago. This CD was well designed with easy access to everything as well as printing capability. I did discover that you need the actual Acrobat Reader, as the pdf reader included with most browsers are limited in features and will not allow searches nor printing.

Only worked on 2 plans, but everything was there for them, from hardware that would be needed to detailed plans. Looking forward to building other items, in time.

Woodworking Experience:
Lot of material and information at a low price
Today’s woodworker magazine hasn’t been published for a number of years, but this digital disc provides all the issues. One of the things I liked best about this magazine is that each issue contained one or more full sized patterns. The patterns are not full sized here, but you can’t put an 18”
Full sized pattern on a 6” disc. ;-)

Woodworking Experience:
Very convenient layout
As a Mac user, setup was less than a snap. I read the attached Mac instructions but thought I would use Preview for the pdf files anyway. It failed with a permissions error. I then tried another non Adobe pdf reader which failed in the same way. After installing the Adobe reader all was fine. I especially like the links set up between the cover and contents pages to the articles. Other disks I have ordered of this type do not have this very convenient feature.

Great Collection
I enjoyed reviewing the entire collection of projects. Although I am only very interested in a subset of the offered projects, the techniques utilized and detailed in all of the articles will help me improve my woodworking skills. Thank you.

Though I have many of the documents (magazines) on shelves in my basement office, there's no index. Having a searchable CD for the kinds of projects I will be able to print quickly and use in my shop makes this a convenience I can hardly pass up!<br /><br />JR Sloan, Spokane WA.

Is the disk worth the money that they are charging? To what level of detail are the instructions?
Scott on Jun 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: All of the projects in the collection are very detailed and include material recommendations (type of wood, finish to use, etc) as well as complete cut lists and in many cases full sized drawings so you can make patterns for the project being worked. There are also many pictures showing the techniques being used on the project.
Is there a digital version to download? I have no DVD or cd drive on my laptop.

BEST ANSWER: Sorry no, this is only offered as a software CD
