If I only bought one woodwork book, this first and definitive book on the workbench would be it.
Library Journal
Schuttner, an accomplished builder, is known for his previous best-selling carpentry guide, Basic Stairbuilding. His current book, designed for the accomplished do-it-yourselfer and profusely illustrated with both photographs and line drawings, is another professional effort. Schuttner wisely recommends spending more time designing than building, pointing out that mistakes that could otherwise prove disastrous are easily corrected in the design stage. All the basics and most of the secondary considerations are addressed with clarity, simplicity, and sensitivity.-- Alex Hartmann, Bloomsburg University Library. Pennsylvania
