There have been a couple hiccups, and that’s what this blog entry is about.
• If you ordered your book on May 23 and haven’t received it, send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org. For some reason, some of those orders didn’t get processed correctly.
• If you ordered a copy of our “Sawing Fundamentals” DVD and you haven’t received your order, it’s now on its way. We just received stock of that DVD this afternoon and fulfilled all those orders.
• If you aren’t in one of those other two categories and haven’t received your book, hang tight. We ship our books via “media mail,” which can be as fast as priority mail, or as slow as 10 business days. If you ordered your book before June 7 and it doesn’t show up by June 18, please let us know.
And finally, I have an update on the leather-bound edition of “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest.” I dropped off the unfinished book blocks to the bindery today and they should be done within six weeks. The price will be a flat $185, which will include shipping and insurance in the United States.
If you ordered a leather-bound volume, you’ll get an update via e-mail before we ship your book.
Many customers have asked if we will do a second run of leather-bound volumes. The answer is: perhaps. We don’t have any more book blocks from the first edition. However, if we run a second printing, we’ll consider a leather-bound edition in a different color of leather.
For those of you who are printing nerds, the bindery designed a cover that uses a sans-serif font for the spine and cover board of the leather edition. It’s a little bolder than the font we used on “The Joiner and Cabinet Maker” edition. I like it.
Thanks to everyone for your patience on shipping.
