    It looks like they are available at https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/category/magazine-back-issue-archive/page/17/

    As a premium content. I did not investigate the price of Premium Content

    Get access to Usenet. Yes, it still exists.
    Access alt.binaries.e-book.magazines.
    Search headers for "wood" or "woodworker" (or whatever you want).

    You can locate/download lots of woodworker magazines including the one
    you're looking for. There's usually in pdf format. I didn't check
    them all but it has Woodworker's Journal going back at least to the
    1970's. Also American Woodworker, American Woodturner, Wood, The
    Woodworker and Woodturner, Aust Woodworker, Popular Woodworking,
    ShopNotes, Woodsmith, & Workbench.

    It took me less than five minutes to find and download Woodworker's
    Journal September-October 1994. It's a 22MB file, too big for me
    to upload. It has the article "Dino Habitat" including templates.

    Thanks for the tip on that group.
    What newsreader do you use ? that searches the headers ?
    I tried downloading the nearly 54 million headers but it was
    taking too long - after about 90 minutes I think I had about
    half of them. And sorting that many in Forte Agent was a bit
    slow .. I did see some Woodworkers Journal but they were
    from 2013 - 2016 ish ; nothing back to 1994.

    This is long but it provides all the basic information anyone should
    need to use Usenet binary newsgroups.

    I use XNews,
    https://xnews.en.softonic.com/ https://ccm.net/downloads/communication/5083-xnews/
    There other readers, you need one that will browse binary newsgroups,
    not all of them do.

    It's pretty basic. It may be old, but it works fine for me on my 64 bit
    Windows 10 system.
    Getting started (for people unfamiliar with usenet):
    1. Subscribe to a usenet server. I use Usennet News,
    https://www.usenet-news.net/ because it has binary
    newsgroups and long retention times. But use your
    favorite one. It will need to provide access to binary
    newsgroups, and the longer the retention time the better.

    2. Download a news reader. Again, I use XNews but there
    are others.

    3. Configure your news reader to access your usenet server.

    4. Use your news reader to download the entire newsgroup list.
    There will be over 100,000 newsgroups but most of them are
    empty or "dead".

    4(a) I delete all of the groups with fewer than a few
    thousand messages, and all the other newsgroups I know I
    will never want to see. That reduces my newsgroup list
    from over 100,000 to under 200. Your mileage will vary.

    5. Subscribe to the newsgroups you want to use regularly.
    For me, that's a manageable 60 or so, mostly music and ebooks.
    (alt.binaries.sounds.mpe.whatever and alt.binaries.ebooks.whatever)

    The following is for XNews readers, to download a binary file,
    other readers may work differently.
    6. Double-click on the newgroup you want to work with.
    7. From top menu click Group>Refresh Headers Special. This brings
    up a menu box. There are two slides to select how many messages
    you want to download.
    I don't download all the headers on any newsgroup with more than
    about 3.5 headers. XNews give me an Out of Memory error if I try.
    8. If I want to search for a particular message without marking
    anything as read, which is how I found the Woodworker's Journal,
    8(a) Select the action "Retrieve and Include Read Articles"
    8(b) Choose "Select Filter", this opens another popup window.
    8(c) Type your search term in Subject>Matches box, click
    "Apply Filter." This closes that popup.
    8(d) Set the Header Retrieval sliders to include all headers,
    then click "Okay". If there are a whole bunch of headers, this
    may take awhile.
    9. You can visually search the resulting header list, or if it's
    very long, select Filter>Custom Filter, type in a search term
    and Apply Filter.
    10. Look for the subject header you want, single click to select it,
    click Article>Decode and click Decode button. The file will
    then download to the default "Download" location you have set
    in Windows. (You can download it elsewhere if you want).

    Once you're set up, this is easier than it sounds. I did steps 6-8 to
    find the WoodWorker's Journal article in less than half a minute. It
    took the program about two minutes to download enough headers with
    "Woodworker" in the subject to find the one wanted, another half
    a minute for step 9, and another five seconds for step 10.

    may take awhile.
    9. You can visually search the resulting header list, or if it's
    very long, select Filter>Custom Filter, type in a search term
    and Apply Filter.
    10. Look for the subject header you want, single click to select it,
    click Article>Decode and click Decode button. The file will
    then download to the default "Download" location you have set
    in Windows. (You can download it elsewhere if you want).

    Once you're set up, this is easier than it sounds. I did steps 6-8 to
    find the WoodWorker's Journal article in less than half a minute. It
    took the program about two minutes to download enough headers with
    "Woodworker" in the subject to find the one wanted, another half
    a minute for step 9, and another five seconds for step 10.

    If you're looking for headers using "wood" or "Woodwork" you'll only
    download a couple of thousand headers, not millions.


    I thought that I would need to have the headers
    before I could search / filter the headers < ? >

    Get access to Usenet. Yes, it still exists.
    Access alt.binaries.e-book.magazines.
    Search headers for "wood" or "woodworker" (or whatever you want).

    You can locate/download lots of woodworker magazines including the one
    you're looking for. There's usually in pdf format. I didn't check
    them all but it has Woodworker's Journal going back at least to the
    1970's. Also American Woodworker, American Woodturner, Wood, The
    Woodworker and Woodturner, Aust Woodworker, Popular Woodworking,
    ShopNotes, Woodsmith, & Workbench.

    It took me less than five minutes to find and download Woodworker's
    Journal September-October 1994. It's a 22MB file, too big for me
    to upload. It has the article "Dino Habitat" including templates.

    Thanks for the tip on that group.
    What newsreader do you use ? that searches the headers ?
    I tried downloading the nearly 54 million headers but it was
    taking too long - after about 90 minutes I think I had about
    half of them. And sorting that many in Forte Agent was a bit
    slow .. I did see some Woodworkers Journal but they were
    from 2013 - 2016 ish ; nothing back to 1994.

    This is long but it provides all the basic information anyone should
    need to use Usenet binary newsgroups.

    I use XNews,
    https://xnews.en.softonic.com/ >https://ccm.net/downloads/communication/5083-xnews/
    There other readers, you need one that will browse binary newsgroups,
    not all of them do.

    It's pretty basic. It may be old, but it works fine for me on my 64 bit >Windows 10 system.
    Getting started (for people unfamiliar with usenet):
    1. Subscribe to a usenet server. I use Usennet News,
    https://www.usenet-news.net/ because it has binary
    newsgroups and long retention times. But use your
    favorite one. It will need to provide access to binary
    newsgroups, and the longer the retention time the better.

    2. Download a news reader. Again, I use XNews but there
    are others.

    3. Configure your news reader to access your usenet server.

    4. Use your news reader to download the entire newsgroup list.
    There will be over 100,000 newsgroups but most of them are
    empty or "dead".

    4(a) I delete all of the groups with fewer than a few
    thousand messages, and all the other newsgroups I know I
    will never want to see. That reduces my newsgroup list
    from over 100,000 to under 200. Your mileage will vary.

    5. Subscribe to the newsgroups you want to use regularly.
    For me, that's a manageable 60 or so, mostly music and ebooks.
    (alt.binaries.sounds.mpe.whatever and alt.binaries.ebooks.whatever)

    The following is for XNews readers, to download a binary file,
    other readers may work differently.
    6. Double-click on the newgroup you want to work with.
    7. From top menu click Group>Refresh Headers Special. This brings
    up a menu box. There are two slides to select how many messages
    you want to download.
    I don't download all the headers on any newsgroup with more than
    about 3.5 headers. XNews give me an Out of Memory error if I try.
    8. If I want to search for a particular message without marking
    anything as read, which is how I found the Woodworker's Journal,
    8(a) Select the action "Retrieve and Include Read Articles"
    8(b) Choose "Select Filter", this opens another popup window.
    8(c) Type your search term in Subject>Matches box, click
    "Apply Filter." This closes that popup.
    8(d) Set the Header Retrieval sliders to include all headers,
    then click "Okay". If there are a whole bunch of headers, this
    may take awhile.
    9. You can visually search the resulting header list, or if it's
    very long, select Filter>Custom Filter, type in a search term
    and Apply Filter.
    10. Look for the subject header you want, single click to select it,
    click Article>Decode and click Decode button. The file will
    then download to the default "Download" location you have set
    in Windows. (You can download it elsewhere if you want).

    took the program about two minutes to download enough headers with >"Woodworker" in the subject to find the one wanted, another half
    a minute for step 9, and another five seconds for step 10.



    Thanks for the tutorial.
    I always thought that Forte Agent was
    the cats ass but I might need to re-think
    and try X-news ..

    Usenet has largely been made obsolete by specialized websites and
    by social media. But I find it still shines for finding binary
    book, magazine, and music files.

    Who knew ! Thanks again for the heads-up.
    I discovered usenet ~ the early 1990s soon after buying
    my first home computer < Tandy with 386 processor >
    but slow dial-up connections for the next 10+ years
    restricted / limited my use of the binary groups ..
    .. then the ISPs began to drop binary groups ; then they
    dropped usenet completely .. then I started to get
    better faster connection options .. now on fiber :-) ..
    I broke down and actually _paid_ for usenet about 5 years ago
    - that $ 15. Astraweb block of bandwidth is still going !

    One of his patients gave him inside (non-public) information and he subsequently used
    that information to make a trade. That's illegal, doesn't matter who worked
