We have two new products in our store today, and we have been able to restock our supply of tools and some books that were sold out. All of the following products are in stock and ready to ship from our warehouse.
“The Workshop Book” by Scott Landis, with a new foreword by Roy Underhill
We are happy to announce the release of “The Workshop Book,” which is the definitive book on setting up shop. The book is the companion to “The Workbench Book,” also by Scott Landis, which we released last year.
If you are just setting up shop or wish to improve where you work, I cannot recommend a better text.
“The Workshop Book” is $38 and is printed in the USA to our usual high standards. The pages are a bright white, sewn for durability and bound between thick cotton-covered boards. The whole thing is wrapped with a tear-resistant dust jacket. You can read more about the book and download an excerpt here.
“Mechanic’s Companion” by Peter Nicholson
“Mechanic’s Companion” is one of the foundational English-language books on hand-tool woodworking. First published in 1812, “Mechanic’s Companion” was written by a trained cabinetmaker, and the methods discussed are relevant today for anyone who works with hand tools.
If you are interested in hand tools and history, this is an essential text. Our version is printed in the USA on offset presses – not print-on-demand. The pages are folded, sewn and glued, not simply cut and glued together. The pages are wrapped in hard boards that are covered with cotton cloth. This is a permanent book. Because we think all hand tool woodworkers should own it, we have kept the price at a reasonable $23.
Restock: “Door Making & Window-Making” by Anonymous
“Door Making & Window-Making” has been out of stock for a couple months, and we have just received a new shipment.
Restock: Crucible Bench Squares
We have also replenished our supply of Crucible Bench Squares. This handy square is an ideal little tool to keep on the bench – or hanging on a bench leg. It’s great for checking squareness while edge-jointing and marking 90° or 45° lines on your work. Read more about it here.
New 10th Anniversary “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest” Hats
And finally, a reward for reading this far: We have a limited supply of “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest” Hats made by Ebbets Field in the USA. These are about the nicest ballcaps around. And they feature a stitched felt anarchist’s square on the front. We have only 144 of these, and we don’t expect them to last long in the store.
