For over a year now I’ve been on the lookout for some sort of book or publication that showcases unique/interesting/cool wood shops around the globe or even in just the U.S. A sort of coffee table experience that would be almost purely woodworking porn, in the same vein that me and my fellow chefs do when the new Korin knife catalog comes out each year. Something similar to Phaidon Press books.

Here’s a few I own and really like. Not trying to be a commercial for Taunton Press, but they do seem to be the people with the most choice in this subject. I went through, Popular Woodworking’s online store, and they have a lot of material about things in the shop, but not much about the shop itself.

Fine Woodworking Best Workshops

The Workshop Book

Great Workshops

Small Woodworking Shops

When people post about their workshops I always look. There are plenty of ideas in fellow LumberJock’s workshops. I have looked at books but they are a lot of verbiage where just a collection of pictures serves my needs.
