With this one CD, you get over 200 project plans! (Yes, you read that correctly.) It's a compilation of everything, from projects, to techniques and tips, to wood science, from over nine years' worth of Today's Woodworker magazine (published 1989-1998). Everything, from every issue of the magazine, is on the CD and is easily searchable. Available nowhere else, this CD gives you all the information you need to build timeless projects ranging from furniture to toys to jigs for your shop -- and more! Whether you're building for your kids, grandkids, your spouse or yourself, you'll find a project that fits your needs.

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.

Good deal
Every issue. I was getting this until rocker bought them. On my tablet I now have all issues to browse quickly and print out the plans as needed. I found it worth the money.

I have used this already for past articles and for projects! It has been a great help for what I needed. It is fast and easy to use and the articles from the past are great to read. It's amazing how woodworking ideas have changed over the years as we get progressively better at our trade.

great resource without taking up space.
I thoroughly enjoyed the disc. Was great to browse through and take mental notes on what all is contained. Enjoyed reading spot articles so far. Plan to delve deeper into it later as time allows.

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.
