The Workbench Book by Scott Landis
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The workbench is probably the most essential tool of any workshop, as well as being the one which best reflects the character and experience of the person who made it. This book is the ideal guide for anyone who is thinking of building or improving their workbench. The author traces the history of this invaluable piece of furniture from its origins in Egyptian times through the 18th and 19th centuries to the present day. Producing a detailed account of a wide variety of styles and techniques, this book illustrates the strengths and weaknesses of each design of bench: with designs for cabinetmakers, boatbuilders, carvers and country chairmakers. All designs are illustrated with photographs and drawings showing how they work and helping readers with the harder parts of the construction process.
