A practical guide for a start-from-scratch project takes the craftsman from space and equipment planning to installation in concise instructions and advice. Estimating your requirements, applying them to your available area, consideration of the types and kind of power and hand tools, wiring, maintenance are all described and examined so that you may make the best decisions and choices for your ""shop"". Even dust and noise have their place in this blueprint which while beaming over the ideal, unlimited space does not forget the limitations of a very small area or an average amount of working room. It takes notice of growing interest and skill, expansion in the tool department and the enlarging of raw materials -- all along the same lines or for a new type of hobby. Worthwhile studying before you take the fatal step.
