Saturday: A Book-release Party & an Open Storefront


This Saturday, Dec. 9, will be the last day the Lost Art Press storefront will be open for 2017 (our next open day will be Jan. 13, 2018). So if you need holiday gifts or something with a personal signature, this is the best and last day to get them.

That same evening, Dec. 9, we’re throwing a book release party for Mary May, author of “Carving the Acanthus Leaf” and George Walker, one of the authors of “From Truths to Tools.” Both authors will give brief presentations, and then they’ll be happy to answer your questions and sign books. Lost Art Press will supply drinks and light snacks. The free event is 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday and is just about filled up. We still have a few places left – you can register here.

If you haven’t been to the storefront in a while, there is a lot of progress to see. The Horse Garage is nearing completion, and we’re setting up the Covington Mechanical Library in the back room for reading and research.

We’ll also have lots of blemished books and tools for sale at 50 percent of retail (cash only). We also have the “Big Bag of Free T-shirts” for you to dive into. Recently I culled my collection of woodworking T-shirts (from all over the world). Come and get as many as you like to wear or to cut them up for rags.

As always, we are happy to answer any of your woodworking questions during these events. Megan Fitzpatrick and Brendan Gaffney (from Popular Woodworking Magazine) will also be there to help out. Here’s a map to the storefront:

Hope to see you there.

    Nicely framed photograph! Also, that’s the workbench I built from your book at it keeps weirding me out seeing “my” workbench in the photos…

    Hello. you mentioned your old t-shirts, maybe you could consider having a nice quilt made from some of your most memorable shirts. I’m sure that my wife would be glad to give you a very reasonable quote for the quilt. Not to be her salesman but I myself wish that I’d saved more of my shirts for a quilt.
    I might be the wiener…

  4. Awesome doors on the horse garage, but KY will have to wait – seems like there’s plenty to do here as well as Christmas is closing in. Ya’ll have a great time at the book release!
