Issue One Cover Artwork and Pre-Order FAQs

Thanks to the critical eyes of a handful of colleagues, I have finalized the cover artwork for Issue One of Mortise & Tenon Magazine. The pre-order date is December 1st. Less than two weeks away! As things are charging ahead full steam now I thought I would answer the most frequently asked questions about purchasing Issue One:

Where do I pre-order?
On December 1st, the “Purchase” page on my website will be setup to take US pre-orders. You will see a “Pre-order now” button as clear as day. If you want to order, you’ll have no problems finding it.

How much does it cost?
The cover price is $24.00 and all pre-orders will have free shipping. For a 150 page high-quality thick paper independent publication with no ads, I’d say that’s pretty good.

What about international orders?
For logistical reasons, I won’t be personally fulfilling international orders from my website. In order to distribute Mortise & Tenon to all those interested, I’ve decided to partner with stockists around the globe. Here is the list of stockists that have thus far agreed to carry M&T for you:


If you don’t see your country on the list, please contact your favorite woodworking supplier and let them know you want them to carry Mortise & Tenon in their store. Retailers respond to customer requests. Whether these stockists will take pre-orders or not is up to them. 

What’s the cut-off date for Sponsorship inquiries?
Our list of sponsors is growing by leaps and bounds. If you’ve been meaning to inquire about sponsorship, you have until January 1st. After that, you'll have to wait until Issue Two. For inquires, email us at sponsorships [at]


  1. "If you don’t see your country on the list"...

    Country? Most continents are missing. Actually there is one half of a continent and Australia.

    Looks like the Baseball world series ;)

    1. I suspect this is only a start, Mariano. I look forward to expanding the list. If you have suppliers you would like to carry M&T, let them know. I am happy to supply interested retailers.

  2. How about a table of contents to peak our interest? Or did I miss that and you've already put it up somewhere?

    1. Sorry about that. I hate anonymous comments but hit the wrong choice.

    2. It's on the Purchase page already. Thanks!

  3. If I may be so bold as to quote a comment I just read on Lost Art Press' blog post tonight,

    "Niels Cosman says:
    I can’t wait, I can’t wait, I can’t wait, I can’t wait….
    *dances around on tippy toes like a child*"

    I use this quote because I have no better words to convey what I am feeling about Mortise and Tenon magazine!

  4. I may have missed this, but what is the expected publish/ship date? Presumably into 2016, but just curious. Looking forward to seeing the finished product!

    1. The expected shipping time is February. Thanks!
