LostArtPress on InstagramJust posted on the Lost Art Press blog: An excellent profile of Welsh chairmaker Chris Williams (@welshchairmaker) written by our very own Kara Gebhart Uhl (@pleiadesbee). Definitely worth a read.A particularly rude student called this a “vanity project,” as it wasn’t for a customer but for my home. It hurt my feelings for a few hours before I realised he was absolutely correct. It is a vanity. Without vanity, nothing exceptional, nothing special would ever be made. It requires an element of vanity to dream a different dream then try to bring it to life. Vain, maybe; arrogant, sure. I put my hand up to all of that. But this is about inner belief more than anything. I think this piece will be worth all the effort to drag it screaming into the daylight of existence. If I am wrong, it will end up in the dumpster of history. If I am right, someone 200 years from now will appreciate the effort we took to get it “right.” Don’t be afraid of the dumpster of history. — from “The Intelligent Hand” by David Bennington Savage #The_Intelligent_HandBevel gauges are at the heart of my work. Many students have asked for recommendations so I picked up a @blue_spruce_tools bevel gauge. It’s fantastic. Details on our blog. #neversponsored

“Shaker Inspiration,” Christian’s Becksvoort’s new book, is a bit different than most Lost Art Press titles; it’s part inspiration (both for the reader, and a look at the Shaker furniture tradition that has inspired much of Becksvoort’s furniture), part woodworking … Continue reading

I know it looks as if we’re running a woodworking school, but when classes aren’t going on (which truly is the majority of the time), the Lost Art Press storefront is Christopher Schwarz’s working woodshop and publishing office where he … Continue reading
I had the great privilege of working on David Savage’s new book, “The Intelligent Hand” – yet I confess it flummoxed me on my first several editing passes. After years of writing and editing straightforward, linear woodworking how-to articles, I … Continue reading
