Extract from back cover of book:

A well-designed, well-built workshop can do more for your woodworking than a new tool. A good shop is a place where you want to be - a safe, well-lit space where work flows efficiently from machine to bench to finishing area. The articles included in this book offer ideas and solutions on everything from designing your floor plan for workflow to the nitty-gritty of picking the right tools.
