Though I’ll be in Germany this Saturday, the storefront (at 837 Willard St., Covington, KY.) will be open as scheduled from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on June 10.
Megan Fitzpatrick has volunteered to sell books and answer woodworking questions in my absence. She’ll be selling the entire line of Lost Art Press books, T-shirts, posters and a handful of blemished books for cash at 50 percent off retail (we even have a couple blemished copies of “Roman Workbenches”).
Looking ahead, however, I don’t think we’ll be able to open the storefront on July 8. Megan and I will both be at the Lie-Nielsen Open House in Maine. If I can con someone else to open the store that day, I’ll let you know.
In August we’re planning a special open day (Aug. 12) that will feature a fun evening event with Nancy R. Hiller, author of the great “Making Things Work.” Nancy will perform a reading from the book and sign your copy. Plus she has planned some fun games (she’s making a woodworking piñata). More details to come – but mark your calendars.
