Tonight I’m signing and lettering all the black leather “Joiner and Cabinet Maker” books that were bound by hand by the Ohio Book company in Cincinnati.
I am pleased with the quality. The silver lettering is crisp. The leather is applied neatly to the boards and the end papers are quite a sight.
We still have a few of these books available. But because there are so few, we’re not even going to put them in the store. As of this evening, the letters “U,” “V,” “W” and “Y” are available. Everything else is spoken for.
If you are interested in one of the last four, the cost is $165 plus $8.50 for priority mail shipping in the United States (foreign orders can get a quote from Sharon using the link below). Please contact Sharon at email@example.com. Or you can call her at (317) 603-3605.
These books will ship out to Joel Moskowitz at Tools for Working Wood this week. Once he signs them, they’ll be dispatched to their final destinations.
We have used up about half of the unbound editions so far. I’m not sure exactly how many of them are left because some were damaged during transport. If we do another run of these leather-bound books it will be an edition that will be released during the Woodworking in America Conference Oct. 1-3.

April 2 update: There is one book left. Letter “Y.”
