LostArtPress on InstagramApologies 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.The final plates came in for the expanded version of “The Anarchist’s Design Book” from @brionycakes. Spectacular work — as always. Book goes to press today.

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
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 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
Editor’s note: I usually start this gift guide in November, but November got away from me. Apologies. I started this guide after my kids began asking me what I wanted for Christmas. Some of the suggestions I gave them ($3 … Continue reading
This will end up in the 2019 Anarchist’s Gift Guide, so consider this Christmas in August. I’m no carpenter, but I use carpenter pencils all the time for rough layout and (after planing them in half) for leveling the legs … Continue reading
Today I had to return to IKEA to buy some sheepskins to outfit the stick chairs I’m building, and I was stopped cold by one of the company’s displays. It was a bunch of 36” plastic flexible tapes, offered for … Continue reading
