Blown Away

The first week of pre-order opening has gone spectacularly. I’m blown away by the amount of enthusiasm for this publication. Honestly, when I first came up with this idea, I thought I'd have to figure out how I could convince a few of my friends to buy a copy. But as this thing has been developing and growing the past year there has been a good amount of buzz about it. Popular Woodworking and Classic Hand Tools have been tweeting about it. Chris Schwarz, Tom Fidgen, George Walker, and Jim McConnell have been blogging about it. It’s been passed around Facebook quite a bit now. All in all, I am pretty overwhelmed by the response. It has been a long road to get to this point and I’m still in the thick of it for a while doing the nitty-gritty editing and designing. I will make sure you see this thing in your mailbox in February.

A Few Words on Ordering

A small handful of people have contacted me to tell me they’ve had issues not being able to sign up for pre-orders. Most of them followed up later and said it finally went through. I can’t say why that glitch happened but all I can tell you (as annoying as it sounds) is it’s a Paypal issue and not anything on my end. If you’ve tried and tried with no success feel free to shoot me an email at info@mortiseandtenonmag.com and we’ll see what we can do. I will be switching to a different (and better) storefront in the next few weeks so I’ll let you know when that is launched. There may even be a few new products to release. We’ll see if they arrive in time.


  1. Any idea when M & T might be available through Lee Valley in Canada?

    1. In only a few days, Steve. I'll announce it when it opens. Thanks!
