Whoa -- a complete set of FWW rarely gets more than $300 retail in Fine condition or better. Mostly, it gets less. You certainly wouldn't get more than $125 at most used bookstores either. Local stores in my area have sold old issues for $0.50-$3 each, seldom more than half the cover price. They pay around 20-25% of the cover price for them at most.
The books are still in print, aren't they? And mostly easy to find. People should review what they think they're doing when they collect this stuff. One of the things that put me off "collecting" was seeing a complete collection and noticing how the designs in the first ten years simply didn't hold up. It is a coherent history of woodworking companies who went out of business though.
Unless you can spare $500 for a toy with little practical value, it would be a good idea to look at some older issues to see if you really find any use for a pile of old magazines.
Actually, I've seen the complete set of mags go for over $600.....and the design books are out of print, a full set is almost unheard of....I'm not saying they're not pricey, but the wealth of info is worth it. It took my woodworking to a new level. To each her own, I guess!
The 'Design Books' Raven is talking about have been so long out of print, most
people don't even know what they are any more. Only FWW's old Design Book 6 and Design Book 7 are currently available without an exhaustive search. And the mags...finding a complete set is rare any more, and well worth the price. Those older FWW magazine issues are in-depth courses in detailed, advanced woodworking techniques. I'd say, personally, much more valuable than any of the recent editions for the last ten years.
this classy bag has successfully attract all of the women hearts all over the around the world. It will be an outstanding choice if you are intending to produce yourself elegant and graceful. Besides...
