Library Journal Review

One of the best parts of woodworking is setting up a workshop; in some cases, more effort is expended here than in creating finished projects. An efficient design allows one to get the most out of their shop. Stankus provides a wealth of information on how to maximize floor space and on choosing the best electrical, lighting, or safety features are best. He also gives guidelines for locating machinery and shows sample shops for cabinetmaking, carving, woodworking, and furniture restoration. A variety of storage solutions round out this excellent title, which will appeal to most woodworkers. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
