5-0 out of 5 stars For the weekend warrior, DIY'er and the pros
I've been woodworking for over 20 years, and this magazine inspires me more than magazines geared for woodworking.The articles are clearly written; the pictures are crisp and to the point (show just what's necessary without slipping in paid name-brand product shots.)And the ads seem to be kept to a minimum (sure, they are in there, but not every other page.)
5-0 out of 5 stars Fine Homebuilding is the Best
This magazine is for those who are interested in viewing how people working in the trades do it right. People who are willing to share their wonderful knowledge, projects, and homes. Not cookie cutter homes but homes that inspire its readers to take the higher road. For those who want to be involved in doing something the correct way.
5-0 out of 5 stars This magazine is best in its class!
Admittedly I am a big fan of everything that Taunton press puts out, but I truly think that Fine Homebuilding is a great magazine.Reader be warned though - this magazine is written for professional builders/contractors and serious DIYers.If your building and home renovation skills are any less than the intermediate/advanced level, this will not be the magazine for you.There is not a lot of hand holding here.The authors of these articles often assume that you know more than the basics so that they may cover more high-end techniques.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good Info, Bad Ads
I like the information brought forth in this magazine. Some things were relevant, some not (25 steps to cleaning my car is not very relevant). The only gripe I had with this mag is the effluous flow of Viagara and "Better Sex" video ads sprawled throughout the magazine-- I counted SEVEN such ads in one issue! My kids love to read "This Old House" and "Old House Journal," but "Family Handyman" was off limits. Too bad. To the magazine writers: Not EVERY handyman-type magazine reader is a man, and not EVERY magazine reader needs to be bombarded with the same crap that floods my email inbox.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Product but Misunderstood Process for Gift
This is the third time I have purchased Handyman Magazine for family members as gifts.This time, I misunderstood how to gift the item.Unfortunately, I did not have a second chance to send the magazine to a family member as a Christmas Gift.After calling, the only recourse I was given was to to refuse the magazine when it comes (because it is coming to me instead of my son in Atlanta), call and cancel the order and reorder.Unfortunately, doing this, it will not reach my son in time for Christmas.I would like to see something built into the system that gives a second chance to bill me, but send as a gift.

5-0 out of 5 stars A bit glossy and "staged", but info and tips are great!
My ONLY gripe with this magazine is that the pictures are like those you would find in GQ magazine: they hire models to show you driving a nail or shoveling dirt for that new patio.These people use only brand new tools (brand name label showing of course) in a perfect-world dust free environment.The pictures make it look like it's a Sears catalogue.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good for ideas, but not for "how to" information
If you are looking to do major renovation work in rooms of an older house, then this magazine will give you some ideas, before and after pictures, etc.There is precious little about minor jobs, improvements and fixes you may make on an older house.There is a lot of showcasing new and expensive top of the line stuff. My needs are more simple.I want information on fixing and improving things in my house.I am not a professional contractor.For the major stuff, I will hire someone. I have subscribed for three years but find that there is only one or two pages in each issue that can help me.Their TV show "Ask this old house" is much more informative.For magazines, I am going to try "Family Handyman" magazine instead.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must for Home-improve'ers!
This magazine keeps me coming back for more. Each month might not have something I can use but inspires me to do more and do things myself!!1

2-0 out of 5 stars Don't bother with this one.
This is a magazine for paid product-placement in articles, tons of ads, and so-so articles.You are paying for the name, and getting much less in return.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Ideas. Great Read.Great Magazine!
As a renter of a new house that is completely empty, I needed some ideas for decorating every room.I'm thrilled with Home Magazine!It's got creative ideas for everything from table lamps to kitchen remodels.And they always list websites for where to buy the products right on the page by the product!It doesn't get much easier than that.

4-0 out of 5 stars More useful than the "high-brow" regulars. . .
Okay, it's not one of the fancy, traditional mags but I found loads of things that generated ideas. The sections showing design elements carried through the house were my favorites.It may be on the advertising end of the spectrum in some regards, but I liked seeing similar (but different) approaches to the same design goal by various manufacturers.Having all the web addresses made it easy for me to follow-up on designs I liked, and I didn't have to worry that the editors were trying to curry favor with their advertisers by pontificating on the merits of one item over another.
2-0 out of 5 stars Almost like an AD for Home Stores
This magazine does have tips and ideas along with a Q&A sections but the overall feel of this publication is "ad-like".There are pages and pages of ads and information on where to get 'stuff' like lighting fixtures and wood for projects...maybe a man would like this magazine.Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars OK, but not the best
A year ago I decided to tear out my old workshop and start all over with a new layout, new equipment and new storage. To get lots of ideas I subscribed to Fine Woodworking, Fine Homebuilding, Popular Woodworking, Wood, and Workbench. The one I'll be dropping is Workbench. I have found Workbench to be too light on content. My ranking is:
4-0 out of 5 stars Making your Home Look Better
Workbench is a magazine aimed at do-it-yourself type people who like to work on their own home improvements and save money in the process. This publication presents dozens of woodworking ideas for home improvement and a few for hobby, with plenty of instructions and diagrams to make sure you get it right.
4-0 out of 5 stars Making Things Better
There is no lack of woodworking magazines for the budding (or advanced) craftsman.Each has a particular audience for its contents.For someone looking for the right magazines to subscribe to this can be a confusing process. Especially when the potential reader isn't precisely sure what they want themselves. Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars High end drool catcher
This is not a magazine for someone looking to spend $1500 on a home theatre setup. But it *will* introduce you to a whole new world of high end home automation and audio/visual products. While I'm not planning on spending $85k on my next entertainment center renovation, there *are* elements of these systems that fall within my price range, and the breadth of products reviewed helps me to understand where the pieces I choose fall into the overall pecking order.
2-0 out of 5 stars More like Interior Decorating than Electronic Home
This magazine emphasizes articles on really expensive professional home theater installations with lots of emphasis on photos and much less on technical details.Product reviews are shallow (Why you need this:It's way cool!).After a few issues you get tired of nothing new, especially if you're on a budget or a DIYer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Magazine
I love this magazine.It is great for anyone that wants to be on the cutting edge.I also like the fact that they give prices on each product they review. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Real projects, great documentation
This magazine does what so few dare to do!They show you the "before" and "after" Floor Plans side by side, as well as extensive photographs.The projects featured are realistic, creative, and often informative remodels of existing housing stock in towns and suburbs across the U.S.These examples should help anyone imagine what is possible for their own home.And the cost of the subscription is quite reasonable compared to other "home & garden" journals.

1-0 out of 5 stars Held hostage by OHJ
My husband had a similar experience to Ellen and Red Two Pei. We never ordered Old House Journal. We had never heard of the mag. After two issues we thought that perhaps it was complimentary because we are long time subsribers to "THIS OLD HOUSE MAGAZINE". Then we got one or two letters requesting that we pay for the subsription. We contacted them to say we never ordered the mag, so stop sending it. We probably received 4 more issues but spaced very far apart. It's been at least a year since we've received anymore OHJ mags and we no longer get requests to pay for something we never requested.
1-0 out of 5 stars Warning
I have had the same experience as Ellen who also reviewed this magazine, regarding Old House Journal. I never subscribed to the magazine but somehow received two issues and then was billed for a full year's subscription. I ignored the subscription payment notice figuring it was junk, and now have received two collection agency letters. I have tried calling Old House Journal and was told twice by two different customer service reps that my subscription had been cancelled out of the system. Then why am I still receiving debt collection notices? I can't believe that these companies can get away with this. And to ruin my credit for a measly $21. I agree with Ellen... if you are unfortunately linked somehow to Old House Journal, be prepared to be reported into debt collection, even if you never subscribed to the magazine.

1-0 out of 5 stars Horrible Customer Service
The magazine was fine, but after one subscription I wanted to cancle.But, they kept on sending my magazine and then sent me to a collection agency, North Shore Agency.I paid the bill and called Old House Journal to let them know it was paid (North Shore Agency doesn't include a phone number on thier collection notice).Then, 6 months later I get a nother collection notice from North Shore Agency stating that I had renewed my subscription, which was a lie.Don't get this magazine unless you want to keep your subscription for life.Because if you don't they'll send you to a collection agency.

1-0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly disappointed
I have seen many craft magazines come and go.I hope this one goes.Granted, there is no commercial advertising in it, but paying anything over $1.98 per issue would be too much.The crafts are mainly useless, juvenile, and lack polish.I purchased my subscription sight unseen because it was through supporting a local school (the only saving grace to this whole experience), but that is a mistake I will not make again.It took at least three months after ordering it that I finally received my first issue.I opened it with great expectation of finding original and practical crafts for my home, but was immediately thoroughly disappointed. Thankfully, my subscription will be expiring soon.
