Workbenches, by Christopher Schwarz

The full title is, "Workbenches From Design & Theory to Construction & Use."

This is a very good book, but I expected it to be even better, so I was a bit disappointed in it. There were several areas where a bit more explanation would have helped quite a bit, and several obvious redundancies between chapters, as though they were re-use of independent magazine articles.

Still, it is very useful, with adequate (but not fabulous) plans for an English style (i.e., with apron) and French style (i.e., massive, without apron) workbench.
