While titled "Setting Up Your Workshop", this book also includes many great ideas for jigs to solve various problems. Of course, you can pick up a lot of these ideas by working with other woodworkers, or reading the magazines. The tips here are different from the books published by magazines, which tend to be rehashes of things previously published in magazines (but can still be useful). The book assumes that the reader needs only ideas, and not complete project-oriented discussion, parts lists, dimensions, etc, so it is not a totally beginner-oriented book.

In Setting Up Your Workshop, woodworkers will learn what is important to know now and what can be learnt later. A woodworker's workshop is a personal space and in my experience, I've never seen two workshops with the same layout and machinery placement but there are similarities to all workshops. No matter what your space limitations are, this book is a must for anyone setting up a workshop.

I bought this because I did not want to be checking the book out of the library every time I wanted to use it.

Whether you use traditional or electric tools, woodworkers live and die by clever ideas for all kinds of work. While titled "Setting Up Your Workshop", this book also includes many great ideas for jigs to solve various problems. Of course, you can pick up a lot of these ideas by working with other woodworkers, or reading the magazines. The tips here are different from the books published by magazines, which tend to be rehashes of things previously published in magazines (but can still be useful).

The book assumes that the reader needs only ideas, and not complete project-oriented discussion, parts lists, dimensions, etc, so it is not a totally beginner-oriented book. It does not teach the techniques used for building the jigs, which could be helpful for a beginner, but the ideas are simple and most woodworkers will have no trouble figuring out how to build (and modify!) the jigs. They do offer suggestions while you are building to help you get the details right.

Here is the chapter listing:

Introduction - 3 short essays from experienced woodworkers about what they do and what that means for their shop
1. Shop Layout - 17 pages planning the placement of major tools, benches, etc for various shop sizes, and locations like garage, attic, basement. Lighting, power, heating, ventilation, floor
2. Workbench - 14 pages covering essential construction of a traditional bench, plus 10 pages on a variety of accessories (dogs, hooks, carving holders, sawing accessories, shooting boards)
3. Shop Accessories - 17 pages on dust collection, air-powered tools, and mentions of useful secondary tools like shop vac, grinders, compressors, etc
4. Storage - 20 pages on storing tools, wood, clamps; a fold-down workbench and tool cabinet
5. Work Surfaces - 37 pages on work tables, sawhorse and variations, clamping jigs, feed stands, shop-built extensions for routers (e.g. tables), band saw (circle cutting, extension table), drill press table, outfeed for table saw
6. Safety - 16 pages on jigs to make work safer, things to wear to protect yourself, first aid, instead of admonishments to use your saw blade guard and be careful
Index - longer and more detailed that most, but there are lots of ideas in this book to index

Most readers will find familiar ideas explained well, but also new ideas. The ideas are text and drawn pictures organized well, and fairly comprehensive for general purpose shops.

It's interesting that there is no author listed for this book.

BOTTOM LINE: Four stars, "I Like It". Many great ideas to learn from, yet not as exhaustive as it could be.

Kindle edition gets 1 star because of ebook conversion quality: the written content is a graphic, not text; as a result the tiny, blurry text cannot be enlarged. The illustrations have also suffered in conversion to e-book format. I could not read it on my Paperwhite Kindle. My husband tells me that, for the few moments I kept the book, he viewed the book on his Samsung tablet and the content could be enlarged by gesture and read. It was a constant battle of enlarge, move, change zoom factor, repeat.
Content quality TBD: based on the subjects of the illustrations and table of contents from the ebook, i ordered the paperback edition. My impression is that the book starts with assuming the user will benefit from beginner basics and continues with common things necessary for setting up a shop for the first time, complete with rationale for setup.

Have to agree with the other review. The single star review is for the Kindle version. The text is small and unreadable on the Kindle app. You are unable to enlarge the text or zoom in on the screen. Very dissappointing because it looks like this could be a good workshop book.
