  1. Any idea what the next leather bound book might be?

    Excellent. A well made book for my library and a pdf for instant gratification.

    I ordered my copy this morning and I must say your new checkout process is very well designed. This is my first time using your new site to make a purchase and I found it a much better experience than your old site. Great job to all who helped you make that transition!

    How about posting a table of contents.

  5. Chris,
    Downloaded the Campaign Furniture book and hardcover in route to the house. I have been super excited ever since you mentioned publishing a book on Campaign Furniture. Being in the military, I believe you did a great job of connecting historical military service, day to day living, travel, and how furniture was best utilized. After downloading the kindle version last night and briefly combing through it, I appreciate you taking time to explain receding hardware and how to install. This was extremely helpful. Overall, the book is outstanding on so many levels (context, pictures, etc) and if you are serious about publishing a second campaign furniture book, I will be eagerly anticipating. Thanks again Chris!

    I just finished flipping through the PDF, and I think it’s a great book. Now when can we expect the Furniture of Necessity and hopefully that chest before your couch in the one video?

    I’m glad that it has the same basic gestalt as ATC and The Joiner and Cabinetmaker, which I also really enjoyed.

    Good going!

    Hi, Chris – great read so far. a couple of quick questions. In chapter 1, regarding the portable writing desks or slopes, you write:
    The construction of these desks has been covered in many other books and magazine articles, so I chose not to build one for this book.
    Are you talking about portable writing desks in general (like the shaker-style ones that seem to be most common), or have you seen articles on building the campaign-style desks? Could you site some articles, please if it’s the latter? Thanks, and keep up the good work!
