This book dives deep into the historical records of the 18th and 19th centuries and breathes new life into traditional workbench designs. Christopher Schwarz explores vanished workbench designs and shows you how to design a bench that suits your work. Plus, he shows you step by step how to build two forgotten but very useful designs and put them to use in the workshop. Even beginners will manage to build a world-class workbench. Includes comprehensive technical drawings.
