Thanks to South African woodworker Ray Deftereos, creator of “The Hand Tool Book Review,” for his kind words about Christopher Schwarz’s “The Anarchist’s Workbench:”
“I think it is safe to say that this is the definitive workbench book. And as a free resource for the electronic version, this is completely out of this world as a deal! Join me on today’s episode as I discuss why this is probably the only workbench book you will ever need.” To listen, click here.
Ray also made good use of the Creative Commons license for this book, by narrating the first chapter – it’s fun to hear Christopher’s words in someone else’s voice! You can listen to that by clicking here.
And if you’d like to download your own free copy, see the second-to-last paragraph in the book’s description at the Lost Art Press online store.

He just released the second chapter this morning.
If we all chipped in, maybe we can get Samuel L. Jackson to do an audio book version.
“I have had it with these mtherfcking drawers on this mtherfcking workbench!”
“anarchist’s” is misspelled in the first sentence of the blog post.
I wanted to thank you for making the AWB available. I’ve loved the quality of the writing and humor of your prior books in the Anarchist’s series, and this is a fitting close to the trilogy. I can’t wait to have the paper copy in hand.
I’ve spent the last few weeks working on mine, and finished all of the worst work last night. Your book was an immense and easy to follow guide. As someone who has never built a bench and was often scared off by the thought, this book is a god send.
