For those of you beginning to think about finally making your own
real, honest to god, tailored exactly to your woodworking needs,
there's a new book to add to the Sam Allen and Scott Landis list
on the subject.
The Workbench : A Complete Guide to Creating Your Perfect Bench
by Lon Schleining
$23.77 US at Amazon.
Spent half an hour sitting on the floor at Barnes and Noble
going through it. Plenty of great full color photos of all
manner of workbenches.
Unfortunately, Frank Klausz's really nice workbench isn't
in the book - deduct a full point from the score. Checking
the index I saw James Krenov's name and turned to
the page to see his bench. Alas, his name only appears
in the text, along with Tage Frid and Frank Klausz - all
in just one sentence about Northern European benches.
Tage Frid from Denmark
James Krenov of Hungary (?!?)
Frank Klausz originally from - Siberia?
Deduct to additional points from the score.
But, if you're going to build a bench, this one's worth
perusing and possibly buying. I'd get Scott Landis's
book first though.
ps - Mr. Schleining, if you're out there, please
proof the galleys BEFORE another OOPS
like this happens again.
