My name is Joshua Klein: furniture conservator, magazine publisher, homesteader, INTJ, Christian, libertarian, environmentalist, etc...
My wife Julia, my sons Eden and Asher, and I live in the rural coastal town of Sedgwick, Maine on a 7.5 acre homestead. Chickens, bees, timber framing, and building a cob oven are some of the latest happenings at home.

What’s the Diary about?
The Diary is focused on three areas:
1. My furniture conservation business. I periodically post how-to features, project treatment reports, and various musings on the relationship of craftsmanship to life.
2. Mortise & Tenon Magazine. This is an independently published annual magazine seeking to bridge the worlds of furniture maker, conservator, and scholar.
3. The homestead. My family is in the process of developing a homestead where we provide most of our own food and learn traditional skills to live our life. We occasionally post updates on projects at home.
