LostArtPress on InstagramThe new, expanded edition of “The Anarchist’s Design Book” landed on my doorstep today. I am relieved and happy to see the new manufacturing details. The red bookmark ribbon is sweet. And the black-on-black printing on the cover worked out well. This is a huge book – 656 pages (200 more than the first edition) and includes 18 projects (six more than the original). If you ordered a copy it should be on its way this week. Our warehouse has begun shipping them. Soon it will arrive with our retailers around the world. Thanks to everyone who helped with corrections and criticism and was patient as I completed the revision. #timefordaydrinking?“I aspire to create tools that function at the highest technical level, are a joy to use and beautiful as objects, like a Herreshoff yacht.” - Thomas Lie-Nielsen — from “The Difference Makers” by Marc Adams @marcadamsschoolofwoodworking #the_difference_makersThis week we have @welshchairmaker teaching at the storefront and have finished up the proofing for his new book on John Brown. Though our Covington neighborhood is German, this week I’m calling it Wee Wales.

I’m in Roorkhee chair production mode this weekend. I have two chairs that need to go to a (very patient) customer in December. And I have enough material to eek out a couple more chairs – if I don’t make … Continue reading
One of the rarer forms of campaign furniture is also one of the simpler and rougher forms. Because campaign furniture was designed to travel, it often was transported in a specially fitted case, box or canvas bag. So instead of … Continue reading
Several people have asked for drawings of the three-tiered Nicholson campaign chest I’m finishing up this month. The bad news: I don’t have detailed drawings. Good news: You don’t need them. The chest is built using the same techniques shown … Continue reading
I clock my screws, meaning I orient the slot in the screw heads so they are all vertical or horizontal. But I don’t think it’s a mark of superior aesthetics. It’s just something I do, like lining up the silverware … Continue reading
I love building campaign chests. There are so many variations on the form that I have yet to build two that are even similar. This week, I start on the most involved set of campaign chests yet. It’s a three-tiered … Continue reading
I’ve recently completed a handful of campaign pieces and have some extras I can sell. All three pieces were built as part of articles I wrote for Popular Woodworking Magazine, and so I am selling them at a discount. I … Continue reading
