Our Indiana warehouse reports that our press run of “Honest Labour” has arrived. The warehouse will pack and ship the pre-publication orders shortly. You should receive an emailed notice when your book goes into the mail.
If you are unsure about purchasing this title (it’s a bit out of the norm) I would encourage you to read some of the free excerpts we have posted during the last six weeks. You can read them here, and they might help you make up your mind.
In the introduction to “Honest Labour,” I openly wonder if this book will sell, or if it will instead be the heaviest poster we’ve printed to date. I am happy to report that this book began to turn a profit sometime last week.
If you live outside the United States, the book will be available from Lee Valley (I do not know when). In the U.K. you can place a pre-publication order here through Classic Hand Tools.
Thank you, as always, for your support.

Great news! Can’t wait for Lee Valley to have it.
Woo hoo! Can you sign mine? Just put “To Covidia, Go Away, Chris.”
I’ll sign it using my snot if that’s OK.
I’ll possess your DNA! All I’ll need then a healthy ovum and I can grow my own Chris Schwarz!
Excellent news, both that it’s ready for shipping and (in spite of the cover colour) already in the black. I’m looking forward very much to getting my copy sometime soon!
Sadly, I won’t be able to enjoy any of the Hayward books. 🙁 Between my tremours and vision problems, dead tree versions of books are unreadable. (And, yes, that makes woodworking itself challenging at times.) While I’ve “de-spined” and scanned a few soft-cover books, doing that to hard-covers, or books >300 pages, is both a shame, and challenging. I’ve looked at a couple of these at Lee Valley after a friend raved about them, but wasn’t able to read more than a few samples. I’ve bought most of my LAP books as PDFs.
Can you clarify: Is this DIFFERENT content from the green volumes?
Yes. There is zero overlap.
