‘Mechanic’s Companion’ Arrives This Week


I’m told by my printer that “The Mechanic’s Companion” will leave the plant tomorrow to head toward my warehouse (a.k.a. my dining room) in Cincinnati. As soon as the boxes arrive, I’ll start shipping out all the pre-publication orders in the order they were entered. And given that my cats are no help at all, please bear with me as I wrap, pack and mail them (but I’ll get it done quickly – I promise)!

If you haven’t yet ordered, rest assured there are still some first-run copies available. (I’ll be building a cat mansion out of the back-stock boxes…but I’d be delighted were it instead a cat tiny house). The book is $34, which includes domestic shipping; it can be ordered here.


I will also have copies available at the Lie-Nielsen Open House in Warren, Maine, on July 13-14, and possibly be selling them out of the back of my car (psssstttt buddy….wanna buy a woodworking book?) at the August 11 Lost Art Press open house…unless Chris takes pity on me and allows me to bring them inside. (The latest Lost Art Press book, John Brown’s “Welsh Stick Chairs” is also shipping from the printer this week.)

And, I’m working with a handful of partners (both U.S. and international) – as soon as I have orders confirmed, I’ll let you know where else you can find the book.


It is a fact universally acknowledged that it always rains on delivery day.
