- Excellent resource for planning your next Workbench! Review by Andrew
This is an excellent book for anyone doing research on building a workbench. And, the price cannot be beat. It covers several styles of benches for a variety of uses. The comparison on vises was very informative. If you have an old bench, there is an article on restoring it to new. There are ideas for various accessories and adding cabinets below the top for additional storage. From a practical point of view, this book is better than many others three times the price.
