Detailed Description

The Workbench Design Book. Author, Christopher Schwarz

How many times have you heard this: "The workbench is the most important tool in your shop." While the statement is absolutely true, it doesn't help you answer the more important question: Which workbench should I build? This book explores that problem with a depth and detail you won't find in any other source in print or online.

Here's what's inside:

  • Centuries of workbench history that has been boiled down so you can easily separate the enduring bench designs from the bad ones.
  • Nine complete plans for shop-tested workbenches that you can build plus real-world critiques of these benches that point out the types of work at which they excel.
  • A chapter with makeovers of 10 bench designs with 'Before and After' illustrations.
  • Information on vises and other workholding device choices, plus plans for simple shop appliances that improve any bench.
  • Real-world advice on the best woods to use, the correct dimensions for benches and how to make your bench knockdown or mobile.
