Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ideas and techniques for designing and building workspaces inside and outside the home.

Workshops are not just for carpenters and builders. The workshops in this book have been designed for writers, artists, furniture makers, boat builders, gardeners, collectors and those who like to maintain and restore old cars.

And workshops don't have to be expensive - one of the workshops in this book was constructed inside a closet. Even the most elaborate separate building can be put up for a very reasonable cost if you follow the instructions in this book and do the work yourself.

Based on the success of their previous best selling books - Cabins, Sheds and Playhouses You Can Build - the author team of David and Jeanie Stiles have combined their skills and experience to walk you step-by-step through the selection and construction of a workshop that will give you years of enjoyment and add to the value of your house when you come to sell.

Just a few of the other fact-filled chapters in this book include: Why and Where to Build — how to design and plan a workshop in your basement, garage, attic, or building an addition or separate building Building the Workshop — construction and design fundamentals Portable and Mini-Workshops — no matter how little space you have, you can make something worthwhile Skill Review — a basic primer on woodworking skills that covers all the basics - no experience necessary.

Workshops You Can Build is packed with over 300 detailed and beautiful illustrations by the author which show every step of the building process in detail.

Book News Annotation:

Husband-and-wife team David and Jeanie Stiles have co-authored five previous books on woodworking. Drawing on years of experience designing and building workshops, they offer a practical text on how to build a workspace in a basement, garage, attic, or as a separate building. Coverage includes why and where to build; planning and design considerations; foundations, framing, roofing, and construction fundamentals; woodworking and carpentry tips and techniques from the experts; and detailed designs for home offices, writers' retreats, artists' studios, carpenters' workshops, and portable and mini-workshops. Illustrated with b&w diagrams and drawings and color photographs.
