Abstract:

Where does great craftsmanship come from? More often than not, it takes place in a workshop that inspires creativity. A great workshop says as much about self-expression as it does efficiency and convenience. What is made in a shop--and why--influences the way a shop is configured and what you'll find in it. Readers get an inside look at some outstanding shops, how they evolved, and how they suit the individual needs of the woodworkers who own them.
