The right tool for the job isnâ€™t always drop-forged from chrome vanadium steel or plugged into a 220-volt outlet. Whether youâ€™re rebuilding the engine in a 1967 Pontiac GTO or converting the home office into a nursery, any big project starts with careful planning. Step away from the power tools and collect your thoughts, specs, and calculations with the new Summer 2015 â€œFIELD NOTES Workshop Companion.â€
This 27th limited COLORS edition is a set of six books, boxed in a sturdy 60-pt custom slipcase with a sheet of crack-and-peel decals. Each of the books focuses on one DIY discipline â€” Wood Working, Automotive, Gardening, Painting, Plumbing, and Electrical â€” each containing tips, reference materials and the usual Field Notes wise-cracking.
The six covers are color-coded to compliment six tones of 100-lb cover stock from the French Paper Companyâ€™s terrific new â€œKraft-Toneâ€ paper, their first new grade in five years. The 70-lb text Kraft-Tone â€œStandard White Kraftâ€ body pages feature our dot-grid, and are bound with tough brass staples. Anyone fixing a switch, planting a bush, or painting a door jamb will find these books make a nice addition to their workbench, junk drawer or toolbox. The â€œWorkshop Companionâ€ is the perfect gift for Fathers Day, and however you feel about your dad, youâ€™ll want one yourself to keep your projects organized. Theyâ€™re only available for a limited time.
