If You Aren’t Afraid of a Little Snow

We’re all going to die!

The Lost Art Press storefront is open today from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. And at 7 p.m. we are throwing a party for Christian Becksvoort to celebrate his new book “Shaker Inspiration.”

The event is free. We will have drinks and snacks. And Chris will give a presentation of his work, sign books and shake hands. Come visit a living woodworking legend in one of his few visits to the Midwest.

The storefront is at 837 Willard St., Covington, Ky 41011. We have our complete line of books for sale, plus some blemished books at 50 percent off. Come see Brendan working on his Chester Cornett rocker. Megan’s working on a Dutch tool chest and I’m working on two Welsh stick chairs.

  1. If I were anywhere close by, I would be there. Ottawa, Ont. where I am is far away. BTW, similar amount of snow here and biting cold to go along with it.

    By drinks and snacks do you mean milk and bread? That is all people where I live seem to be interested in when it snows.

    Hey, no fair! Responsible prudence is not the same as cowardice. The small amount of snow in your photo comes nowhere close to what some of us who would’ve loved to be there today have in our locales, and the rural roads that some of us would have been driving before sunrise were dangerously slick. Along the lines of Mr. B’s repeated distinction between the realities of professionsal and non-professional woodworkers in his book, when you make your living at this work you have to pay attention to stuff that has the potential to keep you out of the shop (illness, bad driving conditions, etc.) and weigh responsibilities against desires. And now I’ll shut up and returned to my deadline work, with sincere regrets for not being there and wishing you lot an abundance of fun!


    • Hi Nancy,

      My post was mostly aimed at the locals, who were worried we wouldn’t be open or that we had canceled the event. The local weather personalities had us convinced this was going to be an epic snowfall, and the photo above was about as bad as it got.

      Chris was bummed you couldn’t make it – he’s read your book a couple times….

    I would love to stop by , but Port Angeles is way to far far away for a day trip…

    Thank you, Chris, Chris, Megan and Brendan. It was a wonderful evening and well worth traveling through the small snow. Always a pleasure to meet with people who take my woodworking knowledge to a higher level.
