By Scott Landis; foreword by Roy Underhill
First published in 1991, "The Workshop Book" by Scott Landis remains the most complete book about every woodworker's favorite place: the workshop.
“The Workshop Book” is a richly illustrated guided tour of some of the world’s most inspiring workshops — from garage to basement shops, from mobile to purpose-built shops.
Author Scott Landis traveled all over North America to discover the workshops featured in this book. The result is an intriguing and illuminating look at multiple successful approaches to shop layout.
You’ll also find advice and instruction on:
• 20 detailed floor plans for a range of woodworking shops (basement, shed, mobile, purpose-built, and more) to make the most of your available space
• Storage for tools, lumber, and supplies
• Heating, lighting, and electric
• Dust collection
• And more
A woodworker himself, Landis’ journey became a personal quest for the elements he’ll include in his own dream workshop.
Whether you are an amateur or professional, The Workshop Book offers a wealth of ideas and inspiration for setting up your ideal shop. Whether you are just starting out or are somewhere along this lifetime journey, this book will be your faithful guide.
