Turn your jumbled workshop and woodworking area into the picture of efficiency with this book. Basic considerations are covered first, such as wiring, work flow, and climate control. Some sample layouts cover a traditional garage setup to more dedicated spaces. Dust collection and ventilation, heating, safety, and security are all addressed, with projects for each. Illustrating photos do not always have close proximity to the text, a layout flaw. Storage and cabinetry projects are clever and inventive; tips and checklists round out the book. Overall, a very nice book with great projects to accessorize and organize your workshop beautifully. Strongly recommended for most woodworking collections.

Wood® Magazine provides ideal standards for work flow, machine space, electric power, lighting, ventilation, dust control, and other factors. More than 250 well-illustrated pages present advice on choosing the right space, checking for adequate electricity, customizing a room, heating systems, security in the shop, noise protection, and eyewear options. Plus, there’s coverage of workbenches, from drop-lead to full service; stools, stands, and supports; shop cabinet craftsmanship; special storage needs; and easy racks, holders, and organizers.
