Covington Storefront Open This Saturday

Though we’re on the eve of Handworks (and are a little ragged around the edges), we’ll open the Covington storefront this Saturday to the public with lots of good stuff to see.

Here’s a quick list of interesting objects:

  1. We should have some copies of our H.O. Studley poster to sell at the special introductory price of $20. (They are supposed to arrive today.)
  2. I have two repaired letterpress copies of “Roman Workbenches” we can sell.
  3. Come try out the new Crucible Design Curves. I have the prototypes at the store now. I’m not sure I’ll have complete sets packaged and ready to sell, however.
  4. We have lots of blemished and returned Lost Art Press books this month. They are 50 percent off retail (cash only and in-store only).
  5. Come check out the Swedish gateleg table I just finished (it ships to a customer next month). And I have a couple other pieces that are for sale, including one of my staked three-legged stools with the charred finish.

Plus all the usual stuff: all our books, T-shirts, stickers and gabbing about woodworking.

The storefront is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is located at 837 Willard St. in Covington, Ky. The Covington Farmer’s Market will be running the same day from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. It’s a short walk from our store and a great place to get lunch or snacks. And pet a goat.

    I like the cast iron store front on your building. Do you know who made it? Looks like it could be Mesker but there were many foundries making this stuff. You see a lot of this architecture on old Main Steets across the U.S.

    • The foundry that cast our storefront was here in Covington. One of the historic preservation officials told me the name of it, but I’ve forgotten. The emblems on our storefront are covered ina lot of paint and difficult to read (one of the many things i need to fix). It looks to me like the foundry began with the letter “F.”

If you don't do it, don't say it.
