Shipping Update for ‘The Woodworker: The Charles H. Hayward Years’

tools_IMG_2253John has been inundated with customer emails asking when their copy of “The Woodworker: The Charles H. Hayward Years” will ship, so here’s an update.

The books arrived in our warehouse yesterday. John is preparing all the shipping labels, and the warehouse employees are preparing for an assembly-line packing process. They plan to have all books in the mail by Thursday, March 10. After that, it’s in the hands of the carrier.

If you have a problem with any Lost Art Press order, feel free to send an email to If you are trying to find out the status of your order for these books, the above update is all we can tell you right now.

— Christopher Schwarz

P.S. Most of the books ordered by our retailers left the docks at the printer at the same time ours did. We have no way of knowing when the book will arrive at Lee Valley, Lie-Nielsen, Highland Hardware or any of our other retailers I’m afraid. Nor do we know when they will begin shipping.

    This just needs to be said.
    Patience folks, like the sun rise, your order will be there when it is ready.
    The Folks at LAP are working as hard as they can to get out publications in a timely manner, and they keep us updated with timely “current status” emails. So it really is aggravating to hear of many customers bothering the small staff at LAP with questions as to when their order of Charles Hayward etc will ship out. They can’t ship them if they don’t have them back from the printer now can they ? So just chill out and your copy will be sent as soon as it is available to send out. Maybe you should volunteer your help in the LAP mail out process if you are a local and LAP could use your assistance. This is one of the major problems of this ( not my) ” instant gratification” era, people just can’t show any patience to
    wait for anything anymore. In my experience, any publication by Lost Art Press is well worth the wait, period.

  2. People need to chill. Consider moving onto Irish time for things like this. You’ll get it when you get it. It’s worth the wait.

    And consider this:


    You can only pick two…

    My wife wants to get me the set as a gift and I wondered if it would be possible when ordering to have as many anarchists as are responsible and available to sign it for me. That would make my year! 😉 thanks.

    If there was any chance at all, please let me know, cause that would just be awesome. I understand if it is an inconvenience, maybe I could spring for the gas money 😉 Have a great day.

  5. Books are here. Haven’t finished reading them just yet (ha!). Amazing work. Thank you so much for publishing this.

    Got mine. Now.. I buy from LAP not just for the content but just as much for their devotion to the printers and binders art, that started with me when I got my first edition “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest” (congrats fellas the gateway drug worked…). But I am surprised at just how much I have already picked up from these old reprints!! The section on chamfers is great, I have done lambs tongues before but there is a lot to be gained here. And the article on homemade hollows and rounds, looks like the one in the latest Popular Woodworking. In all a great resource and many thanks to LAP for making them available to us.
