  • SWWC by the Numbers

    I know SWWC publishes an article index. But I wanted something more readily available to organize my magazines. So, I undertook to catalog the issues I have at hand.

    I used a spreadsheet program because of the way I can filter the catalog. All I had to do was decide how to categorize the many articles and projects. I was also curious as to how many articles and projects I have at my disposal. I'm sharing this at the end of my post.

    I plan on eventually posting the spreadsheet on my website as a freebee. I'll likely post a PDF version also but it, of course, will not be quite as usefull. A free spreadsheet viewer is available from Microsoft. I'll make that link available when I post the spreadsheet.

    Once I got all the titles entered, being an engineer by trade, I couldn't stop there. I assigned a distinct project Design Type and a Technique. You'll see these at the end of my post. Just how many box projects were there? Or puzzles? I had to find out!!

    Caveate: The cataloging is sometimes subjective. Some projects can be completed as fretwork or segmentation or intarsia. I had to choose one. Whether I assigned a project to fretwork or scrolling depends upon where the majority of the work lay. If an author takes exception to the assignment, let me know and I'll make a correction.

    I began subscribing with the Fall 2006 issue. I'm missing Summer 2007 but I'll find it eventually.
