If you're a handtool woodworker who thinks the word craft describes a way of life and not just a fun hobby or summer camp activity, then Mortise & Tenon Magazine is for you. It a refreshing departure from modern magazine publishing. It's filled with beautiful photographs and thoughtful articles instead of advertisements. The magazine is published independently by a small team in Maine who lives the craft life. In their own words:

"MORTISE & TENON MAGAZINE is a celebration of hand tools and traditional woodworking, seeking to bridge the worlds of furniture maker, conservator, and scholar. M&T is published twice a year. ... This is not another typical woodworking magazine. There are no “7 Essential Router Tricks”, weekend DIY pocket screw projects, or ad-cluttered pages. M&T exists to showcase premier furniture artisans and scholars in an elegant and artful manner. The magazine is printed on uncoated thick paper with a minimalist photography-saturated aesthetic.

The passion to marry scholarship with craft practice imbues the publication with a unique voice in the world of woodworking media."
