We sold out of our 100 tribolts for building a Campaign Stool in less than 24 hours. We won’t be restocking, but we do have a solution if you didn’t manage to snag one.
Mike Siemsen, who made the first 100 tribolts, has agreed to make another 100 and sell them directly to woodworkers as a public service. The tribolts are $15 with free domestic shipping. Mike has set up an eBay store here for orders. Or make your own tribolts using Mike’s directions here.
We still have a good number of campaign chest T-shirts in stock. Those have been selling at a good clip, but we ordered more than 100. We plan to keep this shirt in stock for the next few months, so you have some time to think about it.
I just got my shirt today and love it. The American Apparel shirts are as soft as a baby sasquatch’s butt. We are constantly comparing our shirts to those made by other U.S. vendors and have yet to find a better shirt.
The shirts are $20 plus $5 domestic shipping. More information (and new high-resolution photos) here.
I know that some of you are frustrated that we don’t stock all of the T-shirts, patches, postcards, tattoos and whatnot that we’ve made during the last five years. It still hacks me off when my oldest daughter walks downstairs wearing a “Rude Mechanicals Since 1768” shirt in maroon. I never even had one of those.
To be honest, we make the T-shirts so we have something to wear. Postcards so we have something to write on. Patches for the holes in our jeans. These things are temporary.
What is important to us are the books. We want to keep every one of them in print for as long as we’re around. That’s where we are totally serious.
