I have been wondering about this also. I read somewhere that they were predatory in advertising, sometimes sending unsolicited "gifts" and expecting payment. I think I'll keep an eye on this thread and see what others say.

The hair on the back of my neck stands up at the mention of "guild". I have no experience with the one you mention but generally guild members seem to want payment to be part of their self proclamation of elite.

You might want to give your post more time in the future. This is what I would refer to as a tired subject, which most jocks may be weary of responding to, hence a possible reason for a relatively slow response.

Holbs provided the most thorough and accurate response, and I appreciate them researching it to respond your query.

I wish this topic would come up as often as necessary to allow others, newbies, etc. to make informed decisions about this subject.

I don't believe I've seen so many complain about receiving an item that you are asked to keep without being charged, or send it back. Or, pay if you would like to. It's your choice. However, you must choose one, or they may bill you.

It looks like what they are offering as an open way of gaining your confidence in what they have to offer, has failed miserably. However, I think that the bad rap they are getting is not fully warranted.

Just, keep it and don't pay. If you read, you will see that this is the option.

Whew!
Over and Over again.

Sorry, about the frustration.

Oh, and sorry, the orginal question was asking if the yearly membership is worth is. I would say that they don't seem to have much content compared to say Popular Woodworking, and definitely not as much as Fine Woodworking. However, the fee is really cheap. If you are just starting out in woodworking, I might work for you.

I paid for the premium membership at, oh, I think 8 bucks. I think I got my money's worth out of it, but I probably would not renew next year, as I've watched most of the premium video. I've learned a few things, but not a whole lot.

You get a LOT of email from them, and they don't remember that you are already a premium member. Easy filter, I don't see it any more.

Agreed…... Nothing I recall, jumped out at me. I won't renew again…..I feel it covered the basics and more suited for a beginner though. .....If you are a beginner at woodworking, then this may be for you.
