Here is a book that no shop should be without. It’s called Workshop Math by Robert Scharff. I stumbled across this book years ago and have lost count of the number of copies I bought and given to my friends. This book is almost has important in the shop has fire extinguishers, first aid kits, and safety galsses. It’s a book that has been a benefit to me many times.
It is not a woodworking book although it does contain some rather detailed explanations about carpentry and instruments and tools used by woodworkers. The book contains a complete range of topics associated with having a workshop. Building, electrical, plumbing, mechanics and graphical representation of forces in an easy to understand format. There are drawings, tables, charts, formulas, etc. to help make life in the workshop easier.
There is a staggering amount of information in this book, it’s like a 450+ page workshop encyclopedia. If you want to learn more about how to have a safe and effective workshop, this book is definitely worth a read.

Yes Dennis it is very easy to understand. It would have to be, if I could understand it. I’m no “rocket scientist” by any stretch of the imagination. :^) Lots of Charts, Tables, and Formulas. It’s a pretty comprehensive book.
