This book dives deep into the historical records of the 18th and 19th centuries and breathes new life into traditional designs that are simpler than modern benches, easier to build and perfect for both power and hand tools.

Every workbench should allow the woodworker to easily work the edges, faces and ends of boards,
however most benches built during the last 100 years fail on at least one of these tasks. Workbenches is
the only book that shows the reader how to design and build a good workbench and most importantly,
how to use it in their shop for all sorts of tasks. This book dives deep into the historical records of the
18th and 19th centuries and breathes new life into traditional designs that are simpler than modern
benches, easier to build and perfect for both power and hand tools. Two venerable designs are provided
as basic skeletons and the knowledge presented shows woodworkers how to design custom
workbenches, perfect for their style and method of woodworking.
