I have no use for all these magazines anymore . I advertise in Facebook to give them to those interested in woodworking FOC . I hate to give them to garbage collectors because I feel a lot of wood working knowledge and projects are in them.

But nobody seem interested. Now what should I do? Give to garbage collectors or burn them ?

It’s a shame, but the internet and YouTube
have made how-to woodworking magazines

When I started acquiring woodworking magazine
back issues in the 1990s they were an incredible
resource and they were worth something as
collectibles for awhile. I sold some duplicates
at one point. These days I don’t expect my
small collection of early Fine Woodworking
magazines is worth anything.

Perhaps you can donate them to a library.

It is true magazines are going obsolete, Too bad but magazines show more detailthan youtube. I also feel that most people are getting lazy to read . Reading is hard,watching is easier…

Even my local libraries do not want them.

Maybe I should start a bonfire. Or use them for smoking raku.
