Special (and Final) Offer on Workbench Books

We don’t discount at Lost Art Press, and we do not plan on ever getting into price wars with competitors.

Because of our personal policies (crazy as they are), we are discontinuing “Workbenches: From Design & Theory to Construction & Use” and “The Workbench Design Book.” You can purchase these titles for considerably less from Amazon.com and every other retailer, and so we feel silly offering them at full retail. Our customers are paying a ridiculous premium for a signed copy. That’s not a good value, and we don’t feel right asking full retail.

So we are closing out our inventory of these two books and are going to offer free shipping on them until our stock is depleted. We have 83 copies of “Workbenches” in stock, and nine copies of “The Workbench Design Book.” Update: We are now sold out of “The Workbench Design Book.”

So if you want a signed copy of one of these books by mail, this is a good time to do it.

    Are you saying that you’re not selling these anymore? NOT that they’re going out of print? It’d be a shame if they were, I have Workbench Design and I really, really like it.

    Make that 8 copies! I have the hard bound of the other (awesome reference and all around book) and the kindle version of the Workbench design Book but nothing beats the real thing. The only thing that could make them better is if they were covered and bound the way you did with the Anarchist’s Tool Chest and The Essential Woodworker, just gives a book a timeless feel! Keep up the great lineup, I believe the joiner and cabinet maker will have to be the next purchase.

  3. Noooooooo…..just bought your last book from ” ……” a few days ago. Curses!!!

    Make that 7. I picked up Woorkbench design last night. I am a beginning woodworker and have out grown the starter bench I built. I’ve already got a few ideas for the next but could always us more.

    Thanks Lost Art!

    If anyone missed out on The Workbench Design Book, there is a copy on Abebooks for only $507.96, plus shipping. You’d think for that kind of money, you’d get free shipping.

    Maybe you could write a new book called “the ultimate workbench design and construction book” Anyway, you can include the Milkmans bench in the next book.

    Has anyone else noticed that ‘woodworking’ in no longer a category of books on Amazon? You used to be able to just pick it out of Crafts & Hobbies on the left hand menu, but they have deleted ALL sub categories except puppets & print making.
