Wally hopes you can join us on Saturday, Nov. 26, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. for our holiday open house (at which you might consider giving him a cat treat or 10). We’ll have available our full line of Lost Art Press books, Crucible Tools and apparel, including new baseball caps – khaki with the English square (from the cover of “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest” cover) embroidered in black. We’ll also have a selection of “blems” – slightly damaged books – at half price (blems are, as always, cash only please).
Plus, we’ll have a special gift for the first 100 or so visitors – a gum eraser stamped with the Lost Art Press logo (I’ll post pictures when I have those in the shop). And if you’re 21 or older, do ask to see the clock. (We’ll also have treats and beverages for those who eschew alcohol, of course).
We’ll be happy to raise a glass with you, and an answer your woodworking questions – or even demonstrate any techniques that are flummoxing you (preferably before raising too many glasses). And I believe we’ll have a special guest demonstrator, too – more on that to come!

Timely blog post. Was just thinking about it.
About those new hats… 🙂
Chris put a picture up on the LAP IG page a few days back of our test one: https://www.instagram.com/p/Cj_H56IOwEs/
M. “ask to see the Clock” link is broken.
http://One of the local stores that our family has frequented for decades has a long-standing holiday tradition we love. Customers are asked if they “want to see the clock.” Those who agree are taken to the back room where there is a clock, of course, but also something else. (Let’s just say you need to be 21 to see the clock, and it’s not porn.) The storefront is located at 837 Willard St., in Covington, Ky. We will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and we’ll be happy to answer your woodworking questions or even demonstrate any techniques that are flummoxing you.
I fixed it – sorry
Might be fun to have a special guest flummoxer.
Habitual/pavlovian check of flights, then continue to checking for hotels.
I have no idea how I’d justify this to Mrs. The Champ.
I am curious about the two wooden clamps to the left of the bookcase. They appear to be made by Bliss, of Rhode Island, but I can’t be sure. Could you confirm their maker? Many thanks. PS can’t come.
The larger one, the one in the front, is from Bliss. I don’t think the one in the back is – thought I can’t read the marks, other than “Mark Osterman” which I believe is an owner’s mark (but I’m not sure). But I think it’s a bookbinder’s clamp, not a woodworking clamp.
It’s the bull whip that I find intriguing, but somewhat unnerving.
It’s the “encouragement whip.”
I’m gonna be there!
