Grandpa’s Workshop

If you’re a follower of the Lost Art Press then, you’ll no doubt have heard about Grandpa’s Workshop. It’s been blogged and reblogged all over the place for the last few months and, quite recently, it became available in the UK, thanks to Classic Hand Tools.

I haven’t bought anything tool or even wood-related for a while but, as I’m in to reading and especially writing at the moment, I decided to purchase this one, as soon as I read about it in CHT’s monthly newsletter.

I cannot review the book just yet as it now sits amongst an ever-growing pile of books I’m slowly working my way through. Instead, I thought I’d take some time and photographs to show you just how delicately wrapped it was upon delivery last week.

Had I bought this book from an average seller on Amazon then, I’m sure they wouldn’t have gone to the effort of wrapping it in brown paper. As a hardback book, many might see this step as unnecessary, within the confines of a jiffy bag. But, it certainly is a very nice touch and, of course, you get the extra satisfaction from having to unwrap an item you’ve already received and opened. I don’t wish to share the contents of this book, even after I’ve read it, as I’d hope you might consider buying it yourself some day. Just inside the front and back covers, you’re presented with a tools list for everything featured further ahead (or behind).

If you are interested in a review though, I would suggest you look here.

I apologise for the quality of these photos as the lighting isn’t great indoors.

Thanks for reading.
