Our latest book, “Campaign Furniture,” will be on sale in our store on Friday with free domestic shipping (until April 5, 2014). The shipment of books arrived in our Indianapolis warehouse today, and the fulfillment service is getting everything ready to ship.
The hardbound book will be $33. The pdf version of the book will be $14. You can order both for the discounted price of $39.
In the meantime, we have prepared a free chapter for you to download. This short chapter is on building the campaign stool, one of the simpler projects in the book. We’ve received a lot of questions about the stool after we sold 100 of the tribolts for the stool last month. (If you want one of the tribolts now, you can buy them direct from Mike Siemsen, who made the bolts for us. Click here to order one – same price, same shipping arrangement.)
You can download the free chapter here:
Be aware that it is more than 12mb – so if you have dial-up, go to your local library.
Also, as promised, here is a description of the physical book and a table of contents:

The interior is in full-color and printed on paper that is heavy and coated with a matte finish for readability. The interior signatures are sewn for long-term durability.
