Topic tags/keywords: calendar hand tools

The unofficial 2014 LumberJocks Hand Tool Calendar is done and available for order.

First off, I apologize for the delay, but think the results are worth it. Big thanks to all of you who allowed pictures to be used and for those who supplied high res images when needed. It was extremely difficult to select the pics—there were so many good ones to choose from. Even limiting the choices to only photos posted during 2013, there were probably enough good shots to do a page-a-day calendar. Of course it wouldn’t have been ready until July :-)

Hope you enjoy the look—it’s a bit different than last year’s hand plane calendar. I promise that no one was intentionally excluded, but in trying to show some of the quality, breadth and uniqueness that makes LJ what it is, while still featuring some of the more artistic photos or projects that caused a stir, some really good projects or shots had to get cut just because of space.

Huge shout out to Mosquito, who did the Photoshop work and set up the calendar on Zazzle.com. While not inexpensive, their products are extremely high quality and you are able to order the exact number you want in your choice of three sizes. I ordered already and was having problems with the promo code they showed on the website, so called customer service and they very quickly supplied a different code with a better discount and even said to share it with all of you. That is what I call good customer service!

Enough blather, here is the order link:

http://www.zazzle.com/lumberjocks_hand_tool_calendar_2014-158717355717941769

At checkout, enter promo code: 2014CALSDEAL

That code will get you a generous discount, but is only good until this Friday, January 31.

My order is in! This one is going in my cubicle, to remind me of what I would rather be doing. I will look up at it and smile! :-D

JayT and Mos, thanks very much for making this happen! Order has been placed. It’s hard to judge a book by it’s cover, but I like what’s on this one. :-)
