The Lost Art Press storefront in Covington, Ky., will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Saturday for all your book-browsing, woodworking-question needs.
We have our entire line of books on display, and they can be purchased with cash, check or credit card. We’re also available to answer questions, demonstrate woodworking techniques and even teach you a skill or two. Kids and pets are always welcome.
We have lots of projects ongoing in the shop. Megan is finishing a tool chest. Brendan will be finishing a five-legged staked chair. And I’m deep in a huge campaign chest commission.
If you need some sweetener to get your family to come along, we have one word for you: brunch.
Saturday Brunch in Covington
We are surrounded by some of the best brunch places in the city. Here’s a quick list of our favorites.
Ottos’s. Getting in for brunch at Otto’s is tough on Sundays. Not so much on Saturdays. The lemon ricotta pancakes are amazing, as is the breakfast casserole.
Commonwealth Bistro. We recommend the chilaquiles and the red flannel hash.
Main Street Tavern. As we are furniture makers and writers, we love the bargain brunch at Main Street. Really, everything is great. The waffles are fantastic. The hash special is always good. My personal favorite is the biscuit sandwich with fried chicken.
Libby’s Southern Comfort. This place just opened. We tried it for lunch and we cannot wait to try brunch.
Coppin’s at Hotel Covington. Breakfast and brunch at Coppin’s are a real treat for us. I could eat the Benedict with goetta and spinach every day.
Hope to see you Saturday. We are located at 837 Willard St., Covington, Ky., 41011.

Will blemished books be available for purchase?
I’m afraid we are out of blemished books. Our new warehouse is doing such a great job of packing books that blems are much less common. Sorry.
When will L A P buy Popular Woodworking magazine.
Thanks for the vote of confidence, Lou. I am not eager to get back into the magazine business.
Lou, Chris burnt out and stopped teaching woodworking classes several years back. But he has now stuck his little toe back into that pool. Let’s give him a couple of years, and maybe he’ll reconsider.
He’d be better off buying Mortise and Tenon magazine.
“kids and pets are always welcome.” Does that mean I can bring my horses?
Yup. We can put them in the Horse Garage while you shop
Oooo – I’ll bring my riding boots!
That really is a very pretty building.
It is a very attractive building but with the wiring coming over to the fire escape it looks like you are either stealing cable or have laid a death trap for burglars. Win/Win
Oh that’s just the phone line. Wouldn’t electrocute a fly.
Too bad it’s a 2464 miles drive from my place. How come we don’t have Transporters yet?
Jetpacks. We were practically promised jetpacks.
Yes, the closest thing to a jetpack that actually works today is Yves Rossy’s jet wingpack.
Just about 6 hours away. So I say this might be the right time
Is this one of those “maker meet ups” I see on instagram all the time?
Legally, I think maker meet-ups have to be held at a brewery.
