Plan Ahead For Success!
Planning a successful woodshop requires planning and organization. More than just deciding where to put the table saw, you need to decide first where to put the shop, and the basic needs of the shop: electrical, heating, lighting, plumbing, storage and more. Creating Your Own Woodshop walks you through these plans and helps you decide what you need to plan your own successful woodshop. Whether converting a basement or garage into a woodshop, or building from the ground up, author Charlie Self discusses the options and takes you through the steps necessary to get your shop up and running. Also discussed is tool selection for your particular type of woodworking, shop space planning for efficient working conditions, selecting the right workbench, lighting and finishing concerns and more. If you’re planning a woodshop, read this book first to build it right, the first time.
