‘Lost Art Press’ on The Highland Woodworker

From where you are sitting, I am sure there are times I look like a media harlot. Sweet mother of mystery, I get tired of seeing my name, image and videos spread all over the Internet. So I can only imagine how you feel about it.

Ask my mom if this is true: Though I’m a total goofball, I really am too shy to look strangers in the eye. Somehow, I have ended up where we are today – featured on “The Highland Woodworker.

When I get phone calls to do a video, class or presentation, my first response is always “no.” I’d rather dig through old books and build things in the shop. Period.

But Charles Brock has always been a helpful and genuine guy; plus, I owe so much to Highland Woodworking in Atlanta, which is the sponsor of the show. So I agreed to have Charles and Stephen Price in my home to chat about Lost Art Press.

I think they did a great job. And they used some photos of the farm house my mom and dad built outside Hackett, Ark., so it was a nostalgia trip as well.

Check it out. As always, it’s a great episode with high production values and a little bit for everyone.

  1. Excellent interview. So impressed with that first edition of AJ Roubo. How do you get any work done with it around?

  2. Hi Chris,

    I’m so glad you did this interview. I found it informative. So now I have a question. How can I compare the different editions you publish side by side? When is it more important to purchase the deluxe editions?

      The deluxe Roubo and standard Roubo have the same content. What is different is the size of the book and the materials used.

      So the choice has nothing to do with the content. Simply put: Buy the standard edition if you cannot afford the deluxe.

    I enjoyed the interview much more than the Oscars. Thank you Chris for being who you are and doing what you do.
