Midnight tonight (Nov. 29, 2014) is the last time you will see free domestic shipping on Roy Underhill’s “Calvin Cobb: Radio Woodworker!” The book is $29. Shipping and handling fees will be about $7.
To give you a further taste of this funny book, today I took our video camera to the home of Megan Fitzpatrick, who edited the book for us. Megan read one of her favorite chapters. It’s a bit long, but it’s a good one.
While she was reading it I laughed at a joke in the chapter I hadn’t caught before: Brown University. See if you can catch the joke in the reading. The book is absolutely filled with little things like this that you don’t get unless you read it with care.
I’d say that Roy is the Thomas Pynchon of woodworking novelists, but as this is the first-ever woodworking novel, he’s also the Danielle Steel of woodworking novelists.
Anyway, enjoy Megan’s scolding of her cat JJ at the beginning of the video.
“Calvin Cobb: Radio Woodworker!” is available from the Lost Art Press store and our other retailers.

You might want to edit that chris as it says 2015 rather than 2014, because your bound to get some smart arse arguing he should get free shipping later on due to the date mistake.
Megan fixed it.
Bit off topic:
Anyone besides me miss Jeff Burks?
Did you have a falling out with him?
We have no idea what happened to Jeff.
He gets busy. He goes off the radar for a while. We hope for his speedy return.
Out of curiosity, whose cat is that? 🙂
And I will second the Jeff Burks. I was reflecting the other day that I hadn’t seen the assorted historical artwork and text selections in some time. Those by themselves, compiled in a neat volume or two, would be a pretty excellent little publication methinks…
That’s my Just Joseph (aka JJ)
Give him a scritch for me, please…
I ordered my copy of Calvin Cobb on the last day of free shipping, I am cheap err, frugal like that, and have just finished reading it. To borrow from the Brits, it is a ripping yarn, very funny with twists that I did not see coming. Roy did a magnificent job and LAP did us all a favor bringing this story to print. Thank you.
