The author is a writer for Popular Woodworking magazine and discusses his quest to build the perfect workbench. He believes he has found such an item and includes plans for the same. I thoroughy enjoyed the theory parts, including shortfalls of the modern home center brand bench. Perhaps the book is best geared toward those who own wordworking handtools such as planes and chisels. Those of us who get-bye with a circular saw, palm sander and screw gun may not need to build such an elaborate workstation. But if you are approaching the design phase of a bench, reading this book is a very good start.

Product Overview

Every workbench should allow the woodworker to easily work the edges, faces and ends of boards, however most benches built during the last 100 years fail on at least one of these tasks. Workbenches is the only book that shows the reader how to design and build a good workbench and most importantly, how to use it in their shop for all sorts of tasks. This book dives deep into the historical records of the 18th and 19th centuries and breathes new life into traditional designs that are simpler than modern benches, easier to build and perfect for both power and hand tools. Two venerable designs are provided as basic skeletons and the knowledge presented shows woodworkers how to design custom workbenches, perfect for their style and method of woodworking.
