Initially, I was appalled at myself for spending this much on an archive of "magazines." But when the CD arrived I gained a new perspective. You could perhaps compare this to purchasing a digital college textbook. Yet, dollar-per-page, this is an incredible deal compared to buying your usual college textbook -- there are tens of thousands of pages here. And this is better than a college textbook. Because it's all about really cool woodworking and it's full of amazing pictures and articles about buildings and projects that I had never seen or heard of before. And it has good pieces for beginners like me on how to do things. It also comes with a giant index which allows you to find which issue a certain article is in. It is definitely worth getting this full archive if you are interested in Timber Framing.
