Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
One of the best parts of woodworking is setting up a workshop; in some cases, more effort is expended here than in creating finished projects. An efficient design allows one to get the most out of their shop. Stankus provides a wealth of information on how to maximize floor space and on choosing the best electrical, lighting, or safety features are best. He also gives guidelines for locating machinery and shows sample shops for cabinetmaking, carving, woodworking, and furniture restoration. A variety of storage solutions round out this excellent title, which will appeal to most woodworkers. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    Good Alternative Book

    Very similar to most other books on workshop design long on basics, short on examples of specific solutions. Somewhat dated but all of the information is still useful. If I were buying only one book on workshop design, I would look at others first. This is an excellent choice for a 2cnd or 3rd book on the subject. - RLR
