If you’re a woodcrafter and you haven’t already discovered the great publication Fine Woodworking, you should check it out. It features tips, plans, and charts that tell you how much load shelves can carry or what type of wood is period-correct for a certain type of construction — in short, it’s handy to have around. But faced with a stack of 30 or more back issues, it can be hard to find the article you wanted, which is why Taunton created this index CD.
The index CD contains every searchable bit of text in the first 200 issues. Just type in whatever keywords you can remember — such as “Adirondack chair” or “Staining Tips” — and the index will sort through and tell you which issue(s) you need to locate.
If you use Fine Woodworking like a reference guide, this index can easily save you 30 minutes that would’ve been spent leafing through old issues to find what you need so you can get back to the shop. Of course, thumbing through back issues of woodworking mags isn’t a bad way to spend a Saturday morning either.
Pricing for the index CD is $20.
