I only got to read half of "Workbenches". It is very well written, and very informative. Schwarz's writing is like listening to a friend describing his experiences with workbenches. Schwarz states upfront that this book is different from the other workbench books, and he is right! Schwarz tells you what he likes, and doesn't like about all aspects of a workbench. The man should know, I believe he stated he as built 10 over the years. I couldn't imagine. It's taken me a year to build 1!
