Dec. 14 Open House Special Guests


Peter Follansbee is wrapping up his carved box class here tonight, but has decided to stay through tomorrow so that he can be here for the last open house of the year (and anyway, it might take until tomorrow morning to clean up…). We have his two books – “Joiner’s Work” and “Make a Joint Stool from a Tree” (co-authored with Jennie Alexander) – in stock here, and he’ll be happy to sign them.

And a special offer: During a rare fit of cleaning and organizing my home office, I found an extra copy of “Joint Stool” with a book plate in the front signed by both Peter and Jennie (who is no longer with us), and I’m giving it away to one lucky winner from among tomorrow’s open house attendees. We’ll have slips to fill out, and Peter will draw the winner from amongst the entries at 4 p.m. (You needn’t stick around until 4 p.m. unless you want to – I’ll mail the book to the winner if need be).

I’m also pleased to announce that Nancy Hiller is planning to visit from Bloomington – barring inclement weather, she’ll be here at around 11 a.m.! We have plenty of the new edition of her “Making Things Work: Tales from a Cabinetmaker’s Life” on hand, and she, too, will be happy to sign them, for as long as she’s able to stay.

Also: Ask to see the clock, eat cookies (made by professional cook Terry West, aka Chris’ mom), ask woodworking questions and try out tools.

Doors open at 10 a.m. (and close at 5 p.m.): 837 Willard St., Covington, Ky., 41011.

p.s. A reminder that this is the last Lost Art Press open house until June 2020.

    I wish you weren’t so far away, I would love to come and hang out all day.


  3. “I found a priceless and irreplaceable object…. so I’m going to give it away!” This sort of generosity is too rare. Sorry I won’t be there!

    I’m devastated that I missed it. I’m waiting on a flight from JFK to Cincy, arriving five hours too late. Here’s to hoping I can coordinate a trip with the June open house.

    Sounds like a really swell day!! It would be nice to have a streaming video of part of the festivities so more could participate.
