“I purchased this book because I'm newly retired and attempting to set up my shop in a home we recently moved to. I'm new to setting up shop and can use some professional advice. Money is always an issue, but more important to me is the subject of time. This book solves both aspects for me. It contains sound advice if you do not wish to overspend on your shop.”

“I set up my first shop in a spare corner last week with the help of this book and I must say it has helped me considerably. Many of the tools I've bought with the list provided has really saved me quite a small fortune.”

“This is a very good book for ideas. I bought it because I will have an opportunity to build a new workshop after a move next year. The book is well organized and written, with very good discussion of things like space selection, heating & cooling, natural and artificial lighting, electrical, storage, workflow, safety and much more.”

Donald Combs

“Many practical ideas for the not-so-rich. Unlike other books I've read, this book has tons of info for folks that don't have cash to burn. There are a lot of great ideas that can be implemented at pretty low cost. If you are serious about setting up your first real shop, this is the book should have, period.”
