Extract from back cover of book:

The Workshop Book is an amazing tour of ingenious woodworking spaces. The workshops included here range from snugly efficient basement shops to cavernous cabinet shops. There are lavish, well-appointed shops alongside work spaces choked with salvaged machinery and shoehorned into garages, chicken coops and pantries. Some of the shops in this book may approach the ideal, while others border on the improbable. The most creative solutions won't satisfy every palate, but they all share a common ingredient - they work.

Whether a woodworker makes his living in his shop, or his work space is his personal sanctuary, a well-organized shop is key to the enjoyment of the craft. Yet woodworking shops are as individual as the woodworkers who use them. The scores of woodworkers who opened their shops for this book offer a wide variety of clever and creative shop solutions.

This fully illustrated guide features over 300 photos of workshops as well as 20 detailed floor plans for a range of work-space possibilities. The Workshop Book offers a wealth of new ideas for anyone who works with wood.

About the author: Scott Landis is a freelance editor and writer on various woodworking subjects, including wood use and forest management.
