    Not Sandor's Best Work

    I hate to say this, because I have read and enjoyed several of Sandor's books, but this book felt like a regurgitation of past articles and books. I didn't get much new out of it. If you haven't done much reading about setting up shop, then this might be a good book. If you have done a lot of reading, I would skip this book.

    Covered All the Basics

    Very helpful. Covered a lot of things I might not have though of. It was a good starting point to plan a wood shop.

    Solid tips, but some pie-in-the sky.

    I liked this book. I'm currently building out an 800 sq. ft. space, and the suggestions were very useful. Lots of hints on dust collection, flooring, storage and maximizing space. If you are are building a workshop, or converting another space to a workshop, it is well worth the price.

    P.S.: The pie-in-the-sky is in the first part of the book, where there are photos of dream shops, which most of us, or at least I, can't possibly afford.
