For the past 13 winters I've frozen my fingers off trying to woodwork in my Connecticut garage shop. I worked up a sweat this summer by replacing the doors, adding a raised floor, finishing the ceiling and insulating the walls. So bring on the snow, I plan on keeping warm and toasty this year.
This innovative workbench from FWW in 2009 is worth another look. It is simply two long boxes and two sawhorses, but it can do everything the fanciest Scandinavian bench can do, plus it stacks and stores in a corner of your shop.
By a strange coincidence, FWW has three Krenov-inspired articles in the current issue. Together they form a fitting tribute to one of modern's woodworking's great luminaries, who passed away yesterday, just after we went to press.
