From the PublisherIn this compilation of workshop storage projects and tables, a variety of contributors from American Woodworker magazine pre sent solid workbench and table designs as well as construction for bins, racks, and other storage pieces. Not for the beginner, this guide is aimed at the experienced woodworker who is serious about an efficient and tidy workshop. There are a number of great projects not seen elsewhere, such as two folding shop tables and other clever pieces that serve double duty. Professional tips and a detailed section on vises round out the coverage. There is something here for every workshop; recommended.
We all know that better tools make it easier to create better projects - and the same goes for our work spaces. If they are organized, convenient, and help us with our woodworking tasks then we can place more attention onto the project.
This book, filled with information, plans, and photos, has projects for: workbenches, assembly tables, tool storage, material storage, and torsion boxes and they have been selected based on their ability to move, hang, stay firm, hold, and adjust. That pretty much covers everything.
There are big projects, such as the "Dream Workbench" and there are small ones such as the stool made from just 1/2 a sheet of plywood or the dovetailed toolbox that could easily become a family heirloom.
Big and small, this book as an abundance of projects as well as handy little ideas that can be adapted to any work space, such as the pull-out dividers.
Overall I give this book a "two thumbs up".
