If you enjoy the great outdoors, you know that outdoor sports involve a mind-boggling array of equipment that accumulates in the house over years. Outdoor writer Monte Burch has participated in almost every outdoor sport, and now for the first time he shows how best to maintain, build, and store your most expensive and crucial outdoor equipment with this essential workshop handbook. With comprehensive, fully illustrated, step-by-step instructions, readers will learn how to build easy-to-use workbenches and workshops for:

This important information on how to build or buy storage for every aspect of outdoor sports will turn a cluttered garage or basement full of outdoor equipment into a functional, organized system, so that outdoorsmen can easily whip out a dozen flies, repair a boat in minutes, or gather equipment for that big hunting trip in just half an hour. Readers can easily modify each project to suit their needs, and each project is painstakingly illustrated with step-by-step instructions. Monte Burch's years of experience will help beginners and experts alike anticipate how and where to store equipment they may need in the future. And when an outdoorsman finds a place for everything and puts everything in its place, that special special someone known as his spouse will rejoice.
Detailed plans for setting up and organizing efficient, effective workspaces, with a list of easy, enjoyable do-it-yourself projects for outdoors people.
Most every outdoorsman has to be his own equipment manager. Even if hes serious about only two particular endeavorssay bass fishing and turkey huntinghes got stuff galore: bags, calls, rods, lures, line, cleaning kits, shotguns, clothes, and decoys. Often, the night before a trip or the first day of the season is an exercise in “Where the heck did I put that?” and “Why did this break?” as much as it is a prelude to excitement, and time gets wasted in dealing with equipment needs.
But if you invest a little time now in following this books instructions for gear maintenance and organization and its wide variety of plans for do-it-yourself projects, down the line the time you save gets you out the door that much sooner, or gets you that much more shut-eye, making you pumped, ready, and clearheaded for the big day.
Written by an outdoorsman for all outdoors people, this book equips the reader with enough insight and skill to create workspace systems and storage for every major necessity. And with a little imagination, the reader can customize the project plans and methods here to apply the do-it-yourself approach anywhere, any time.
Spouses of outdoorsmen rejoice! A place for everything and everything in its place
