The Lost Art Press storefront will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. this coming Saturday. While Megan Fitzpatrick will be gorging herself on lobster and Downeast Cider, Brendan Gaffney and I will be working dutifully in the shop.
Brendan is finishing up a massive bookstand that will hold our Deluxe “Roubo on Furniture” book – we’ll be posting a video this week on the book and the bookstand, which is from a plan in Roubo. (No, it’s not the one that Roy Underhill has made famous.)
I’ll be building a chair (duh) that I hope will make it into the expanded edition of “The Anarchist’s Design Book.”
We’ll have blemished books for sale (cash only), plus our complete line of new and unblemished books (all major credit cards accepted). Come check out our newest titles: “Welsh Stick Chairs,” “Cut & Dried” and “Slojd in Wood.”
We also have our new Lost Art Press bandanas in stock at the storefront. These are quite nice.
If you are looking for other reasons to visit Covington and Cincinnati, may we recommend:
- The Taft Museum of Art’s new exhibit “Ansel Adams: A Photographer’s Evolution”
- Cincinnati Art Museum’s “Terracotta Army” exhibit
- The American Sign Museum
- The Cincinnati Museum Center has a new exhibit on the history of chocolate.
- See Fiona the famous hippo at the Cincinnati Zoo.
As always, we are there to answer questions about woodworking, demonstrate woodworking techniques and drink coffee. Hope to see you there.
