There are only three more days left to order “To Make as Perfectly as Possible: Roubo on Marquetry” with free domestic shipping. After Oct. 10, shipping will be $7 or $8.
Today I received my advance copy of the standard edition of the book, and it is impressive. The paper is heavy and bright, making the text and plates really leap from the page. The binding, as per usual, is nice and tight. It is a substantial chunk of a book.
To order it with free shipping, click here. This is our final reminder – I’m off to Charleston, S.C., to see my dad and then Pittsboro, N.C., to teach. So I won’t be around to nag you.
I made a short video of the book so you can see what it looks like. I have spared you the banjo tunes this time and have used Bach’s “French Suite 4” as covered by Slayer (kidding about the Slayer part).

“To Make as Perfectly as Possible: Roubo on Marquetry” will start shipping to customers after Woodworking in America next week.
