LostArtPress on InstagramHey chair nerds. We’ve opened up sales of our Edwin Skulls chair poster. We have only 500 so get them while you can. Price $18 (which includes domestic shipping). These also will be sold through @classic_hand_tools in the UK.Apologies for the non-woodworking content. But there’s no way Lost Art Press would exist if it weren’t for this day 30 years ago. That’s when Lucy May @crazycatandhippolady and I went on our first date. She asked me out to see the movie “Rollerball.” (I would have never asked her out as she was – and still is – better than I deserve.) Within six months of that date, we were living together. And within three years we were married (I’m no fool) and on this big adventure. More than anyone in my life, Lucy has encouraged me to let my wilder instincts free. Despite the risks, she said “yes” when I wanted to start The Kentucky Gazette. (It failed.) Even more significant, she said “yes” again when I wanted to leave a great job to start Lost Art Press. She’s the best thing that ever happened to me, and I love her madly.Next week we will begin taking pre-publication orders for the expanded edition of “The Anarchist’s Design Book.” It’s 200 pages longer than the first edition and features six additional projects.

When Lie-Nielsen started selling this dusting brush (at the advice of David Chalesworth) I chuckled about it like when you see a guy wearing an ascot or pocket square. Then I used it, and I bought one immediately. Made with … Continue reading
Core77 has just published my latest column, which details how I generate ideas for books, furniture, tools and such. It’s free to read, as always. Generating buckets of ideas (both good and bad) is an important part of my business. … Continue reading
There are occasional times in the shop I gash myself pretty good. I know that I don’t need stitches, but I also don’t want to wait for an hour for the wound to stop bleeding and set up enough that … Continue reading
You can now place a pre-publication order for the expanded edition of “The Anarchist’s Design Book.” The book is in the hands of the printer and should be complete in early January. If you place a pre-publication order before January, … Continue reading
You need good tweezers (and sometimes a sharp X-Acto knife) to remove difficult splinters. I’ve tried a lot of brands. I’m sure there are some really high-end ones out there that I haven’t used, but the best commonly available ones … Continue reading
I wrote about these in August. They are still awesome and I still use them every chance I get. Why am I writing this, then? To tell you not to bother ordering them from the Two Cherries website. I ordered … Continue reading
