We’re Closed Until June 13


This is a quick reminder that the storefront is closed today – our next open day will be June 13.

We’ll be using today to catch up on publishing projects and commission work (I have to build a crate to ship a chair). We might also scoot down to Crafts & Vines because Vic is smoking some wings.

We look forward to seeing you in June and hope to have a special day planned.

  1. Peace out Christopher until June 13, I can wait. Get you things done, and enjoy.
    Got my own projects to get done. Repairs on two antique cars, (1976 Fiat 124 Spider,{dash Refinish} 1989 Mazda RX 7 cosmetic repairs), Model Railroad bench work, Shelving for book addiction. 1790 house repairs. etc. etc. etc. Tourist season and Reenacting seasons start in March. 😉



  2. Since I bought the building we’re in on our small town’s main street, I have to keep the door locked at all times or folks just drop in. I love to meet fellow woodworkers, but we can’t get anything done and we certainly can’t film with people walking into the middle of a shoot. I can only imagine how much worse it must be for LAP. I hope all the Schwarz fans understand it’s not an affront to them, it’s just a necessity if they want to keep getting all that great content LAP puts out.

    • Glad to hear we are not alone, Stumpy. It is hard to balance public outreach (which is important and which I enjoy) and getting books to the printer and furniture to customers. Maybe someday we’ll be big enough to hire someone to run regular hours. And keep the place presentable. And clean the books of dust. And manage inventory. And….

    With all the youtube wood people building bigger mega dream shops these days, its refreshing to see what you have accomplished in this humble little store front. Keep inspiring us in 2020 with your “influencer free” ideas, projects, and books.

    What, you can’t successfully build a crate while talking to people? Plywood is cheaper than leather Take care, Chris.

    What?! Closing the doors to suit your own pursuits? What will the capital overlords think? How is this possible?
