Made with 14 oz. waxed cotton canvas and #69 bonded nylon thread, the slipcases install easily on any wooden surface thanks to the four brass eyelets and included #6-5/8” slotted screws. The slipcase is designed specifically for the “Pocket Book,” which slips in and out easily, and holds it securely on a tool chest’s lid or cabinet door.
Like everything from Texas Heritage Woodworks, the slipcase is made by hand in their shop in Menard, Texas. It will easily last as long as the book and your tool chest.
We love them. I installed one on the lid of my Anarchist’s Tool Chest. Megan installed one on the lid of her tool chest and also installed one on the lid of a Dutch Tool Chest she is constructing for her forthcoming book.
Note that all proceeds from the slipcase (which is $25) go to Jason Thigpen and his family at Texas Heritage. Lost Art Press isn’t taking any royalties. We think the world of Jason and his family and the work that they produce. Even if you don’t need a slipcase, we encourage you to check out the company’s tool rolls, aprons and leather goods.
We are currently sold out of “The Woodworker’s Pocket Book” in our store. Another press run is in the works, but we don’t expect to be restocked until mid-April. However, several of our retailers have stock, and we encourage you to support them. All of these retailers had stock or were taking pre-orders as of today.
