4.0 out of 5 stars This book has some smart solutions for your workshop... Jan. 6 2005
By Philip Lipton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
...just like the tittle says. The book focusses on nine specific problems and the solutions and workstation projects to handle the related challenges. A trademark of Taunton Press books is the abundant photographs and excellent illustrations. Each chapter has a logical progression in which the writer talks about the problem, suggests a solution with photographs, working drawings and a cut list to build the jig, cabinet or workstation. This is not a step by step instruction book but if you have a workshop, you probably have the skills to finish any of these projects. Even skilled woodworkers can appreciate the hints and tips that accompany each project. For example, how to fit the hinges on a blade storage cabinet and details of the mortise and tenon joint on an out feed table. I like the side bar articles such as the one on how to build a table-saw kill switch.

The book is 172 pages long. Some of Taunton`s books are over 300 pages and others are broken up into several volumes, for instance The Workshop books and The Toolbox book. All of these books are wonderfully inspiring. Smart Workshop Solutions is new material that adds to earlier books and magazine articles from this publisher. Some readers may enjoy the pictures of shops that belong to other well know work workers like Brian Boggs, Andy Rae and Bill Hylton. I wish the book was longer so it could offer more ideas and solutions.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a worthwhile read... Sept. 9 2004
By Scott Pointon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I recently had the chance to read this book and despite some initial reservations, I came away with quite a few good ideas for my small home shop. What took me a while to understand is that most books of this type simply give many different options for how to solve a problem in the workshop without giving detailed specifics on any one choice. This book does the opposite - there are few "solutions" to choose from, but the ones that are offered give a great amount of detail so you can easily reproduce the same results in your own shop.

So, for example if you don't already have an idea of what you want to do to solve your clamp storage problem, then I would say look in other places first to gather a lot of ideas and get a feel for what will work as a solution for you. Then if the idea you like best happens to coincide with one of the solutions in this book you could turn here for detailed plans on how to build what you need.

That's my advice, hope it helps in some way...

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of useful Shop Solutions March 1 2006
By Chester L. Kloss - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this book to be very good in listing useful shop jigs/solutions. It is rare in that it gives enough of the key dimensions to actually build the items. What I think I like best is that in some cases, it shows several similar jigs. You can combine the best of all if you like (which is what I usually do). This book is a great value.

5.0 out of 5 stars A model for other workshop guides Jan. 7 2011
By A reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Most of us who consider ourselves somewhere between a "novice" and a "master craftsman" woodworker have bought and read several of these workshop guides. They usually fall into one of two categories: (A) inspirational, glossy, full color photos of dedicated 25,000 SF shops with $200,000 of machinery and amazing elaborate jigs beyond the ability (or at least the inclination) of most of us; or (B) practical but boring sets of plans and cutting lists, often regurgitated from one of the monthly magazines. This book is genius because it beautifully bridges the gap between those opposite approaches. There is plenty to inspire you as you see some really clever solutions to common problems and enough detail on construction to help those of us who need all the help we can get. The author also weaves in a lot of design philosophy explaining the "why's" that gets you thinking about how to modify some of these plans to suit your needs or physical space. I cannot imagine anyone who enjoys making sawdust not finding something in this book. Thanks, Mr. Anthony.
