Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

No single workbench design is ideal for everyone: some craftspeople assemble furniture, while others require only special clamps for smaller projects. Based on the authors 30 years of experience, this informative handbook will help every woodworker construct exactly the bench he or she needs. Anyone with basic skills could build either the sturdy and versatile joiners bench or one for cabinetmakers, and adapt them for individual use. Other workbenches have storage drawers and a cabinet, or are designed for specialties like carving, veneering, guitar making, and more. And this book offers more than just plans for building the bench—it features information on setting it up, installing the tools, and using it for planning, joinery, power tool operations, and assembly.
