Good Woodworking competitions are also open to people living in the Republic of Ireland. I'm sorry that those from further afield are ineligible; not much we can do about this.

There's a chance that it's still winging its way to you, but unlikely - should have arrived by now. Email me and I'll investigate.

Thread: Magazine Index

Hi Julian,
 
Would like to post more often, just ever busy with the magazine! Sparky has left a hole, you're right, but it's one we hope to go some way towards filing shortly, and rest assured that we do keep an eye on the forum up here in GW towers.

Hi chaps,
 
There is currently no index for Good Woodworking. The Woodworker publishes an index of the last 12 months every January, but there isn't currently a collected one (for all its 110 years!). It's not that requests have fallen on deaf ears, as Richard puts it, but for both magazines it is a pretty huge task, and actually producing our 13 issues every year is the priority. That's not to say we won't ever get round to it, so do bear with us.
 
As for the SIP 0192, Good Woodworking has never reviewed it. But if you email our Technical Editor, andy.king@myhobbystore.com and let him know what you're looking to achieve, he can recommend the best product out there for your budget.
 
All the very best,
 
Darren Loucaides

Hi Paul,
 
We've had some problems owing to staff being snowed out of the office for over a week and a technical fault. I'm told that it will be going onto the site promptly next week, hopefully Monday. My sincerest apologies for the delay.

Thread: A Famillier Name

Hi guys,
 
I'm afraid we've had to juggle things around a bit and Ralph's article has found a more fitting home in GW235. I hope you'll still enjoy GW234, though, which is a 108-page bumper issue (on sale next week)!

Thread: Subscription Renewal Offer

Hi Ray,
 
I messaged you on the 11th with details of who to contact from the subscriptions department, who assures me they will resolve the problem to the best of their abilities. The message shows as unread; I'm guessing you hadn't spotted that you'd received a message?

Thread: bending perspex ?

A-ha! You shall have to look out for the Good Woodworking Special Issue, on sale 8th October, for some detail about bending plastics. But don't put perspex in the oven! Marc seems to be along the right lines.

Thread: Was it better value?
10/09/2010 12:09:58
George,
 
I'm not sure how 13 issues in a year can be called a con, frankly. Subscribers are getting 13 issues for £36.45, which we see as great value for money (considering that total cost for 13 issues on newstand would be £45.50). Subscribers also get a free gift. You're perfectly entitled to buy the magazine off the newstand and miss out the 13th issue, which is our very popular Special, but it'll work out more expensive over the year. You get an even bigger saving if you pay by direct debit, paying just £7.50 every three months.
 
To call it a "con" is grossly unfair, because it's nothing of a sort. It's hard work making a magazine every four weeks, and we like to think we're doing it for your benefit!
 
As for the cost of the magazine, £3.50 is as cheap, if not cheaper, than almost any other 100-page monthly magazine on the newstand that I can think of.

I think Ron means Good Woodworking 231 and Andy King's comments, which are on p27 in Maker's Notes.

Thread: VOTE FOR WHO YOU WANT TO WIN THE UNIVERSITY CHALLENGE
15/03/2010 11:24:38
Hello all,
 
We're fresh back from Get Woodworking Live - well, as fresh as can be after a busy weekend! - and delighted with how it went. The show isn't over just yet, though. Those of you who attended can't have failed to notice the University Challenge. Six college teams from different corners of the country took part and it was a thrilling race to the finish each day, with two colleges facing off on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
 
Now we want you, our wonderful site members, to decide on the winners. We'll put pictures up of the finished pieces later today, so keep your eyes peeled, and we'll try to dig out a prize for one lucky voter...

Thread: Get Woodworking Live floor plan

Morning all,
 
Just a quick note to let you know that there have been some alterations to the Get Woodworking Live floor plan since the show guide was published in GW225. Please see this updated floor plan. I''m told there will also be copies of the revised floor plan handed out at the show.
 
Thanks,

Hi John,
 
That sounds very strange. Sorry about that. Email me your postal address at darren.loucaides@myhobbystore.com and I'll put one in the post for you.
 
Thanks,

Afternoon George.
 
Well-spotted. I'd love to pretend that it's a trick question, but I'm afraid it's a misprint. We'll have to wait and see what readers decide to put on their entries... Watch this space!
 
Good point about the comp being on the back of the article too - we've had concern over this before, but it was unavoidable this time. Please bear in mind that we accept photocopied coupons too.
 
Hope you enjoy the rest of the issue.

Darren
