Shipping Now: ‘The Anarchist’s Tool Chest’

The first loads of “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest” are in the mail stream now, and we are all ready for a beer. Or even a roofie.

We got a few hundred orders boxed up Friday night after work (and barbecue) and spent all day boxing up the rest. Now it’s time for some tater-tot casserole and crispy pork belly. And a roofie.

If you are looking to buy this book from one of our retailers – Lee Valley Tools, Lie-Nielsen Toolworks or Tools for Working Wood – those books are on their way to their warehouses. We can’t say when the book will show up in the catalogs, but it should be soon.

We also had one walk-in customer. A local woodworker who had pre-ordered the book asked if he could pick it up.

And after promising that he wasn’t going to skin me and wear the dried flesh like a mask, we said OK.

Thanks to everyone who placed an order before we shipped. Your faith in us is heartening. And I’m glad we shipped before June, which is what we promised.

One special thanks from everyone goes out to Phil Hirz, who cleaned up the entire data base of pre-orders, and allowed us to push out these orders this weekend instead of next week.

    You can’t underestimate the value of a good database, or a great read. I can’t wait.

    I’ve been waiting (sorta) patiently . . . can’t wait to get mine!

    I think you are taking the whole “anarchist” think a little too far. Looks like you are preparing to barricade your house and turn off the power!

    As for tater tots, try this instead:

    It’s nice to be an anarchist, but you have to be pragmatic about it.
