Maximize space, increase efficiency and bring new life to your shop!

Woodworkers spend a lot of time in their shops, so why not make that space the best it can be? The 24 projects in Practical Woodshop Projects will allow you to:

  •Organize your tools for maximum efficiency.
  •Create functional and flexible workbenches and workstations.
  •Maximize the performance of your woodworking machinery.
  •Use your woodshop space most effectively.

Each of the projects comes with easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions. And author Danny Proulx, who is known for his no-nonsense approach to building, usually offers a simple, clever tip to enhance the project further.

Projects include:

  •Portable and benchtop tool chests
  •Workbenches for occasional and permanent shops
  •Sawhorses and shop carts
  •Floor and wall-mounted tool storage cabinets
  •Workstations for routers, drill presses and miter saws
  •A selection of clever and useful jigs

Here's everything you need to build practical, logical shop accessories and workstations.
