Article - December 27, Many of you may already know Chris Schwarz. He is an editor for Popular Woodworking Magazine and a self-confessed hand-tool and workbench enthusiast. His most recent work is a book called Workbenches , truly a modest title for what is contained within those pages. Perhaps it was just great timing, since I am currently focusing on my hand tool skills, but this book really struck a chord with me.

The revised book is scheduled to be out by the end of and printed in the United States. I started writing that book in , and a lot has changed in the last 10 years — not in workbench design, but in workholding. Plus, after teaching 15 or so classes on building workbenches and building another dozen benches myself , I have learned a few things about bench building that have made my life easier. Oh, and there are a few small errors in the original edition, including one line that people give me inordinate amounts of crap for. So I gave bad advice and then I contradicted myself. Today we have an almost-embarrassing array of benches and accessories to choose from.
