New Collection: Ship-Shape Shop

We just compiled a new collection over at! I am in the midst of setting up my home
shop, so the pain of sorting out layout and storage is very
real for me. I have leaned on The Practical
for several ideas already. This collection
is a great value and won’t be around forever. If you’ve
considered picking up a couple of these titles, this may be a
great time to buy.

The Workbench Design


How many times have you heard this: “The

depth and detail you won’t find in any other
