Our new T-shirt design features three planes from Joseph Moxon’s “Mechanick Exercises” on the front. On the back are the words: “I Shall Die Trying,” something we’ve all occasionally uttered while flattening a large and warped panel.
Thanks to Rob Campbell, also known as The Joiner’s Apprentice, who came up with the idea for the shirt.
The forest green shirts are 100-percent cotton and made in the United States by American Apparel – the screen printing was done in Indiana. The shirts are $16 ($18 for 2XL). Apologies in advance: We didn’t order any sizes “small” or “3XL.”
As always, we make only one run of each shirt design. So if you like it, buy one before we run out of your size. This T-shirt scarcity is a problem even for me. I gave away my last “Rude Mechanicks Since 1678” shirt to a friend, and I have been trying to get my oldest daughter to sell me her shirt. No dice.
You can order a shirt from our store here.
