Issue 07 T.O.C. - Partnership with Nature: An Interview with Peter Lamb

This evening begins a blog series which reveals the table of contents of upcoming Issue Seven. As always, we’ll be discussing one article per weekday in order to give you a taste of what is come. 

Please note that the subscription window which includes Issue Seven is open now through Sep 24th.


We will be wrapping Issue Seven (brown paper, wax-sealed trade card, and pine shaving) for subscriptions only, not individually purchased copies. This is an effort to simplify things a bit around here. Individual copies can be ordered after the subscriptions ship on September 30th, but if you really do love that wax seal, brown paper, and pine wood shaving, be sure to get a subscription now.

If you aren’t sure about your subscription status, you can reach out to us at Keep in mind though, if you are set to auto-renew, you never have to worry about getting the next issue of Mortise & Tenon.

Issue Seven will be here before you know it!

Partnership with Nature: An Interview with Peter Lamb

“Each handcrafted object is an accumulation of thousands of minute decisions by the maker that give soul to a piece. The look, the smell, and especially the feel of a handmade item is an unconscious gift from its maker to me.” - Peter Lamb

Peter Lamb is a lifelong student of craft living in southern Maine. From a young age, he became inspired by the old tools that surrounded him, kindling within him a desire to work with his hands. Through a life of exploring numerous trades and craft traditions around the world, Lamb has approached his work with a uniquely humane perspective.


Mike and Joshua recently spent a day with Lamb in his inspiring shop space to learn about his experiences. From exploring Bhutan with Bill Coperthwaite, to learning the subtleties of working with natural materials, to the feasibility of earning a living today in handcraft, this conversation gives us all serious food for thought.

Peter Lamb has a voice no one can afford to miss out on, and we are overjoyed to bring you his stirring message of hope through communal handcraft.
