Probably more than any other tool in the shop, the custom workbench reflects the personality and experience of its maker. And for the great majority of makers, the construction of the workbench is a labour of love. In The Workbench Book, Scott Landis examines benches for all kinds of woodworking -- from a traditional Shaker bench to a mass-produced Workmate. There are benches for cabinetmakers, boatbuilders, carvers, and country chairmakers. In each case, detailed photos and illustrations show how the bench works and help guide you through the tough parts in its construction. With 19 pages of measured drawings, complete plans for four benches, two chapters on vises, and a list of sources of supply, this is one of woodworking's all-time classic books. Published in 1998 by The Taunton Press, this paperback edition is in a very good, used condition. The glossy, pictorial covers show only a few signs of shelf-wear and there are the remains of a previous price sticker on the back cover. The text block, which contains over 275 photos in colour and in black and white, is in a clean and bright condition.
