One Month and Crapping – I Mean ‘Counting’

IMG_4225

Fantastic news for those of you attending our book-release party for “The Anarchist’s Design Book” on March 12. Copperplate artist Briony Morrow-Cribbs is flying in from Vermont for the event and will be there to sign books and some original plates – we’ll have two sets there to sell.

More details on the plates soon.

We’ll also have T-shirts, free stickers, pizza and beer.

Work on the storefront has stalled this week because I’m finishing up a tool chest for a customer. But we are making progress at Willard Street. The drywall guys hung the wallboard on the new wall, restoring the front room’s original shape.

And Mike Sadoff, my right-hand worker bee these days, has begun the joyous process of priming over the purple paint.

After staring at the back room for a long while today, I think I know what to do with the brick archway to restore that area’s Second Empire/Victorian feel. More details when my head catches up with my gut.

P.S. If you aren’t able to attend the book-release party, we hope to have Briony visit the Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event for a short time at Braxton Brewing. So look for her there (she’s the one without a beard who is not named Megan).

    Megan has a beard?

  2. Are you riding your bike to “work” now, or is that for “alcohol powered” transportation? An affirmative response to either question is a huge win in my book. The shop is looking great! I can’t wait to see it again.

    How are you planning to use the back room? The LAP library?

    • I think the library will be in the front room – at least as I have it arranged in my head now. The back room will be multipurpose: Photography, proofing and the guest suite after I gut the back end of the building (where the bathrooms and utility sink are now) to add a full bath and kitchen.

  4. The bones of that building are breathing a little sigh of relief now that that weird arch thingy has been erased. At least from the front room.

  5. I love being on the positive side of the beard ratio at these things. It helps replace my lack of attendance at jamband events post kids.

    When do we get to tour upstairs?

    Is that a walnut bench top? Something else? It looks nice.

    Any chance I could order a couple LAP stickers? My tool chest and Yeti are in need of some LAP art! I would love to attend but I live in HI, and well it’s just not practical to fly to Kentucky for stickers.
