Open for Business

After a very easy transition colonoscopy-like-experience in moving to our new web site, I can now report that our site appears to be working fine, accepting orders and quite secure.

We have tested (and re-tested) the site during the last couple days and are confident that everything is moving smoothly. If, however, you encounter any snags in ordering, please contact us.

You can reach John Hoffman at:

Thank you for your patience. The new site is, among other things, far more stable than our former Dixie-cup-and-rubber-band shopping cart. And it ensures we will be ready to expand in the future and add some great new products, such as a book from Peter Follansbee and Jennie Alexander than has been in the works now for a decade.

More on that book tomorrow.

    I am really enjoying reading “The Anarchist’s Toolbox”. I would subtitle it “Musings of an introspective woodworker”. Reading it is somewhat like being tapped into Christopher Schwarz’ head as he works the wood.

    Teasing @#%&*!! More on that book tomorrow? Are you kidding?

    Now I can’t sleep.

    I read this and several other woodworking blogs on Google Reader, which aggregates them together. I also read Peter F.’s blog. For a moment, I got confused by the picture and thought I was reading that blog. “That’s strange–I don’t expert Peter to talk about colonoscopies.” I just had to share that amusing little bit of Friday morning disorientation.

    Looking Forward to the book “Make a Stool from a Tree” ….

    I found a problem with the new site. Every time I add products to my cart it tries to charge me for them. I thought we had worked out a deal Chris? 🙂

    You made my day. I’ve been waiting for PF’s book for a while now, and I’m super glad to hear you guys are publishing it. Lost Art Press will have a high quality presentation, and PF will absolutely BRING IT on the knowledge front.

    I wait eagerly for the teachings of the great bearded one.

    Strictly speaking, the colonoscopy itself isn’t so bad. It’s the day before the colonoscopy that’s the problem.

      So true. And this fits the topic perfectly, because the stuff they give you to drink is pretty much the same stuff they used to use to keep green qood from checking. I think it works the same way, by displacing water.
