LAPFinalOK, I’m trying not to sound like a stupid airbag recall letter here.

We take customer service stuff dang seriously at Lost Art Press. We try to get back to everyone in less than 24 hours unless we’re on a bender. Heck, we do everything we can so that you don’t have to ask: “Where the heck is my stuff?”

As we approach fulfilling 30,000 orders in a year, we want to keep things personal, quick and easy for you (and us).

In the next few weeks you’ll start to see some highly trusted people on our site who we’ve hired to make sure you get what you need and to solve any stupid problems. So to get your questions answered quickly, here’s the drill.

  1. Do you have a problem with your order? If so, send an email to help at We all monitor that inbox around the clock and will make sure you get your pdf, or we will change the mailing address on your order because you don’t know your ZIP code (not judging!).
  2. Do you have a woodworking question related to our books? Please post it in the forum. You can access it through our site here or directly through the forum’s host here. John and I are on this site every day. If we can’t answer your question, someone else will. The forum is not some ploy to sell ads to pay for our massive underwater server farm. We don’t have sponsors. We don’t have affiliates. We think that stuff is garbage. The forum is there for a free exchange of ideas. It costs us a lot of money every month to maintain. Use it. Or don’t.

And, of course, there is this creaky old blog that you can use to hurl invective or offer advice on ceiling fans.

  1. This post is the worst.

    Nice floors though…

  2. Sorry, currently on a bender and I just read the airbag recall notice on my 2005 Honda Accord – hopefully I don’t die from exploding shrapnel airbag bits.

  3. How can I delete a question I asked at the forum?

    This blog entry is a lot more interesting if you misread “ads to pay for our massive underwater” as “ads to pay for our massive underwear”. And I haven’t been drinking (yet). Maybe that’s the problem.

  5. I apologize if I started something with the “fans” in a previous post. I did not realize there were so many fans of “fans”. I also did not realize discussing another mans choice on fans is, well, taboo.

    Hey guys,
    Thought I’d see if the contact info actually works, so here goes:
    I’m discussing with my wife the possibility of traveling from Covington, WA to Covington, KY to see your new place, but it’s a pain trying to show pics of your progress by going through the blog. Do you happen to have a slide show? Inquiring minds would love to see it!
