Roman Workbenches Book

I received the letterpress edition of Chris Schwarz “Roman Workbenches” last week and I cannot keep my hands off it.  It is truly a work of art.  But not just art, it is tactile art.  Running my hands over the pages is something like running my hands over a freshly planed piece of maple.  It’s one of those tingly, shivery feeling producing kind of things.  It’s why I woodwork.  It’s why this book now takes a prominent place on my shelf.  Oh, and the content is pretty dang good too.  Now, time to stop this online nonsense and get to work building my own Roman workbench.  Progress blog posts to follow.
